Luxury fashion brand Balenciaga apologizes for a recent campaign slammed for sexualising children

The brand has also deleted all its pictures from Instagram

Luxury fashion brand Balenciaga has apologized for a recent campaign that was slammed for sexualising children!

The campaign was meant for the brand’s upcoming holiday collection, featured children holding teddy bears in bondage gear.

The campaign has been taken off from brand’s all social media platforms, but the internet never forgets.

Netizens slammed Balenciaga for the campaign, which also showed a Supreme Court document upholding a law criminalising child sexual abuse images, especially after the brand cut ties with Kanye West.

Furthermore, the brand also apologised for displaying “unsettling documents”, apart for the teddy bears, in the photos.

Though Balenciaga issued an apology on Instagram, but its parent company Kering, which also owns Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, has yet to comment.

The apology notes that were posted on brand’s Instagram handle earlier this week said:

 

 

As soon as the now deleted campaign was shared on the social media platforms, it instantly sparked fierce backlash online with netizens calling out the brand for sexualising children.

And for most of the people the apology is not acceptable!
