Kim Kardashian breaks silence on Balenciaga’s controversial ad shoot: I am shaken by disturbing image

Kardashian released a statement on the Balenciaga campaign, which drew backlash for referencing child pornography and featuring child models alongside fetish imagery

“As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images,” she said in a series of tweets. 

Kardashian added that she’s currently reevaluating her professional relationship with Balenciaga.

“I appreciate Balenciaga's removal of the campaigns and apology. I believe they understand the seriousness of the issue 

The campaign featured child models holding the brand’s “plush bear bags,” teddy bears dressed in bondage gear

while another ad promoting its “Hourglass” handbag contained court documents that referenced Supreme Court cases on child pornography.

Gabriele Galimberti, one of the photographers for the campaign, saying that he had no involvement in the photoshoot’s setup.

“As a photographer, I was only and solely requested to lit the given scene and take the shots according to my signature style,” Galimberti wrote on Instagram. 

Balenciaga issued an apology addressing the controversy on its Instagram story Tuesday.
