Kim Kardashian 're-evaluating' Balenciaga relationship after 'disturbing' photos

Kim Kardashian is ‘re-evaluating’ her relationship with Balenciaga after being ‘disgusted’ by ‘disturbing’ images used during the fashion brand’s recent campaign.

Balenciaga faced widespread backlash after a recent campaign, which used photos of children posing with teddy bears in bondage.

Kardashian, who often works with Balenciaga, has now issued a statement on Twitter, saying that she expects the brand to take action to protect children.

‘I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been disgusted and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened,’ she said.

‘As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images. The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period.’

Kardashian added: ‘I appreciate Balenciaga’s removal of the campaigns and apology. In speaking with them, I believe they understand the seriousness of the issue and will take the necessary measures for this to never happen again.
