Feedback at 5:00: Victoria's Secret

Posted: Updated:

One popular retailer recently sparked controversy with a large group of clients.

Victoria's Secret released a line of lingerie titled, "Bright Young Things," and parents aren't happy -- especially after the company's CFO said the line was targeting 15 and 16 year old girls.

Selling things like lacy, bright colored underwear with sayings like "call me" and "feeling lucky" printed on them, one Texas father felt the company was going too far.

So he wrote a letter that has since gone viral, and other parents agree.

Victoria's Secret now says the CFO's statement was a mistake.
    

The "Bright Young Things" line was part of the "PINK" brand, aimed at college-aged women.
    

Do you think Victoria's Secret is crossing the line? It's tonight's "Feedback at 5:00."
