Her video is in response to comments made by the lingerie brand’s chief marketing officer Ed Razek who said Victoria’s Secret wouldn’t cast transgender models in its annual show because it’s “fantasy”.

“Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should,” Razek told Vogue. “Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is. It is the only one of its kind in the world, and any other fashion brand in the world would take it in a minute, including the competitors that are carping at us. And they carp at us because we’re the leader.”

In 7 hours Dragun’s video has already been viewed more than 1.9 million times on Twitter and has more than 600,000 likes on Instagram.

In the video, which took three days to produce, Dragun is wearing what appears to be a legit VS Fantasy Bra (usually the really expensive one reserved for Angels like Adriana Lima to wear at the show).

Dragun, who officially changed her name and gender last year, has been “constantly crying” since it dropped thanks to the kind comments and feedback she has received.

“I never thought I’d be so emotional over a video but just seeing the outpouring of love and all the responses is so crazy to me,” she said.

BuzzFeed has reached out to Dragun for comment but for now, we stan.
