The head of a Catholic group has his undies in a twist because Boston College is earning money from Victoria’s Secret. Boston College-branded clothing is sold by Victoria’s Secret, and Boston College gets a royalty from the clothing sales. Boston College alum C.J. Doyle, head of the Catholic Action League, didn’t like it one bit.
