AceShowbiz - Former Victoria's Secret model Cynthia Kirchner has hit back at Karlie Kloss' claims the brand promotes an anti-feminist message.
Speaking in the August issue of British Vogue, the "Project Runway" star confessed she stepped away from the lingerie giant after six years because the brand "didn't align with her feminist views."
"I didn't feel it was an image that was truly reflective of who I am and the kind of message I want to send to young women around the world about what it means to be beautiful," the former Guess model added.
But speaking to TMZ.com, Cynthia took aim at the star, and called out the 26-year-old for "biting the hand that feeds her."
"I think Karlie's OK to say whatever she wants," she shared. "I'm not against Karlie. What I am against is biting the hand that feeds you. I feel like that helped her get her start, you know what I mean?"
"Karlie is able to be a voice now because of Victoria's Secret, so if all these other girls don't go the same route, they can never be a voice. You want to use your success to make a difference, or what's the point of your success?"
The 32-year-old also questioned Karlie's idea of feminism, adding, "I think being a feminist is not about what Karlie is thinking it is. It's about being in charge of your body and doing whatever you want."
