Jax, 26, from New York, took to TikTok to share a video of herself facing the store that fueled her eating disorder head on, with a growing flash mob of dancers backing her up, just three weeks after she released the hit song she wrote promoting positive body image.

Her latest video shows the songstress strutting down the sidewalk outside of Victoria’s Secret singing and dancing to her song about the store that fueled her body image issues.

The video, which racked up over 13 million views, begins with Jax standing outside of the store as her song plays in the background. 

As the song continues, dancers surround Jax and back her up one dance move at a  time. Jax’s inspiring message includes the lyrics ‘I stopped eating, what a bummer, can’t have carbs in hot girl summer. If I could go back and tell myself when I was younger, I’d say I know Victoria’s secret and girl, you wouldn’t believe she’s an old man who lives in Ohio making money off of girls like me.’ 

Jax invited dancers from all backgrounds to perform outside the lingerie store, including plus-sized dancers and a dancer in a wheelchair. In the comments she told her over 10.5 million followers that she ‘requested every body type’ and wanted to make it clear that her song’s ‘message’ is ‘diversity.’ 

She added: ‘The issue with toxic commercial body standards is not just the lack of plus-sized representation… it’s that one body is highlighted as the ”right” body.’ 

Although the singer’s body confident song spreads a positive message, Jax revealed that not everyone agreed with her flashy representation. 

According to Jax, the Victoria’s Secret store manager was furious when she held her flash mob in front of the store and Jax said the cops were called, but they said she didn’t break any laws and allowed her to continue her flash mob. 

Despite the manager’s fury, TikTok users loved Jax’s flashy promotion of her song, which she wrote for the the soon  the soon-to-be 13-year-old girl whom she babysits, Chelsea. 

In her initial video sharing the song, Jax and Chelsea are shown sitting in the car when Jax begins to explain to her followers that the day before, she picked up Chelsea from the mall where she had gone bikini shopping at Victoria’s Secret with her friends in preparation of her first boy and girl party. 

The songwriter adds that when the young girl got into the car she was ‘hysterically’ crying because a friend had told her the bathing suit she tried on made her look ‘too fat and too flat.’

Jax, who had struggled with eating since she was 12, told Chelsea she decided to write a song for her to make her feel better, while also shaming the popular lingerie store.

Jax said: ‘I wrote a song for you, because when I was your age I had a lot of eating problems and I wish somebody would’ve said this to me.’

The song with a message perfect for anyone no matter their age starts off with: ‘God, I wish somebody would have told me when I was younger… all bodies aren’t the same. Photoshop, itty bitty models on magazine covers told me I was overweight.’ 

Jax continues to sing her powerful song explaining that she stopped eating because everyone knows you ‘can’t have carbs and a hot girl summer.’ 

She then spills the big reveal when she sings: ‘I know Victoria’s Secret and girl you wouldn’t believe it… She’s an old man who lives in Ohio, making money off of girls like me.’ 

The ‘old man who lives in Ohio’ refers to Les Wexner, the billionaire founder of Victoria’s Secret’s former parent company, L Brands. Wexner stepped down from his position within the company in 2020 after buying the brand in 1982. 

The original Victoria’s Secret was founded in 1977 by a businessman named Roy Raymond, who created the store after he felt uncomfortable going into a department store to buy his wife lingerie. He said he wanted men to feel comfortable buying lingerie, which adds to Jax’s line ‘she was made up by a dude.’ 

After Raymond sold the brand to Wexner, the focus shifted. Wexner recognized a huge opportunity to market his brand directly to women, and for decades, the lingerie store has represented a sense of desirability, where women hopelessly tried to fit themselves into sexy underwear and unattainable body standards for the approval of a man. 

And Jax isn’t the only one speaking out about the store’s shadowy past. Hulu recently released a new docuseries, entitled Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons, which offers a glimpse into the connection between Jefferey Epstein and Wexner. 

The series highlights Wexner’s close relationship with billionaire pedophile Epstein and shows the $7.5 billion lingerie brand’s speedy rise – and epic fall.

The documentary comes three years after Epstein died by suicide in jail, where he was awaiting his trial for charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to traffic minors for sex, crimes that he is believed to have committed over a span of decades, including during the time when he was working with Wexner.

On top of the bizarre relationship between Wexner and Epstein, Victoria’s Secret is also known for the part it plays in many women developing eating disorders. 

In the 2000s, the ‘perfect’ body was depicted by the glamorous Victoria Secret’s Angels.

With impossibly long legs and flat stomachs, every woman around the world desired to achieve the unattainable look at any cost. 

This resulted in a rise of eating disorders between those who dreamed of being VS Angels and those who already were. 

Former Victoria Secret’s model Bridget Malcolm, 29, revealed how she’s changed the way she views herself and the world around her, after recovering from an eating disorder.

The former Victoria’s Secret model has said that she no longer cares so much about the way she looks after years of starving herself to get a pair of VS wings, she added: ‘After having an eating disorder for so long, I have learnt to get my sense of self from inside; from my desire to create positive, lasting change in the world around me.’ 

And while many young women have developed eating disorders because of the brand’s push to achieve the unattainable, Jax has helped many of her followers realize that their worth isn’t connected to their body image with her song. 

Both Jax’s initial video and her flash mob has gained extreme popularity with her followers. 

Her flash mob video received over 57,000 comments from both celebrities and followers, thanking her for bring light to the issue. 

America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel commented: ‘Hey superstar. I love this.’ 

One user added: ‘This is a major accomplishment. Musically, lyrically, morally and cinematically, it is a huge triumph. I got teary.’ 

‘This healed something big in my heart. Thank you,’ added another user. 

Another user said: ‘A flash mob and a good message!! You’re the dream for America’s future!’
