GMA: Victoria’s Secret Controversy
Well, it looks like Victoria’s Secret is at it again. The lingerie company is at the center of another controversy, accused by some parents of targeting their preteens. Victoria’s Secret’s new campaign, Bright Young Things, is considered by some to be targeting early teenagers. Bright Young Things is part of the Pink collections. Earlier this March, GMA reported on a mother who let her nine-year-old daughter shop at Victoria’s Secret, but only from the Pink collection. In that story, GMA reported that oftentimes clothing stores try to get around seeming like they’re targeting young people by advertising to the age group right above it. That story also reported that the tween market is a $30 billion industry. The debate is still raging. Parents took to Victoria’s Secret’s Facebook page to express their opinions, but Victoria’s Secret claims that it has no plans to market to underage children and that the Pink collection is aimed at college-aged women.
