What did Balenciaga do that sparked outrage online and is being accused of

Balenciaga has been in the spotlight these days and not for good. The reason is the latest publicity campaign.

A little girl was chosen for the presentation of the latest collection of bags. So far there was no problem. The problem lay in the details in the background that were described as inciting and promoting pedophilia. Are the people who revolted right? Below you have all the details accompanied by photos:

Detail 1: Lilac teddy bear in child's hands

The purple bear is known as a symbol of pedophilia and sexually abused children. The choice of color can of course be random.

Detail 2: The bottle with the stirrer stick under the child's feet

This may be another random element, but if you look at it with a critical eye, the picture may seem sexist and there is a child on the sofa. The child's legs are open.

Detail 3: Sticker that says Balenciaga

Why do you need a sticker amidst the clutter background? The sticker also serves to silence victims of abuse. Furthermore, Balenciaga is written on it.

And this and all of the above do not add to the doubts that the situation is not as naive as it seems.

After the uproar on the network, Balenciaga apologized. He called it all a misunderstanding and deleted the photos from the official pages. Although they are stored and distributed everywhere.

Si për të qetësuar disi situatën postuan një tjetër foto, këtë herë me të rritur protagonistë. Në tavolinën e punës shfaqet aktorja franceze Isabelle Huppert që pozon në zyrë duke mbajtur një Balenciaga.

Dhe këtu del në pah detaji numër 6. Diku mbi tryezën e aktores shfaqet emri i një artisti belg, puna e të cilit përfshin përshkrime të të vegjëlve të abuzuar seksualisht dhe të tredhur.

Reagimi i Balenciagës dhe fajësimi i kompanisë që realizoi fotot

Pas fotos së fundit Balenciaga në një tjetër reagim zyrtar sqaroi se nuk ka pasur dijeni për sfondin në të cilin do të realizoheshin fotot. Ka paditur kompaninë e prodhimit, por kërkon falje për 'mungesën e mbikëqyrjes'. Kërkon 25 milionë dollarë dëmshpërblim.

Qëndrimi i Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian also took a public stance as a close collaborator with the brand.

"I've been silent for the last few days, not because I wasn't disgusted and outraged by Balenciaga's recent campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to talk to their team to understand for myself how it might have this happened. As a mother of four children, I am shocked by the disturbing images," she said, adding that she is thinking about the progress of the collaboration.

The case is still open!
