Kim Kardashian opens up about Balenciaga's recent controversial ad campaign.
The 42-year-old Kardashians star, who frequently works with Balenciaga, broke her silence on Sunday after many accused the brand of sexualizing children in its recent Christmas ad, which appears to show children holding bondage-clad teddy bears.
"I've been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven't been disgusted and outraged by Balenciaga's recent campaigns," she began in the statement on Twitter. "But because I wanted the opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened."

"As a mother of four, I have been shocked by the disturbing images. The safety of children must be held in the highest regard and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society – period.”
"I appreciate Balenciaga's campaign removal and apologies. I believe that by speaking with them, they will understand the seriousness of the issue and will take the necessary actions to ensure this never happens again," Kardashian concluded in the statement, which was also shared on her Insta-Story.
Her post comes after Kardashian received a spate of comments urging her to condemn the brand after posting a photo of herself modeling a shirt from the brand's collaboration with Adidas.
According to insiders, Balenciaga has reportedly deleted its social media activity after apologizing in response to the controversy and removing the images from all platforms on Tuesday.
"We sincerely apologize for any offense our Christmas campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign," the brand said in the statement, noting that they "strongly condemn the abuse of children in any form."

The photographer of the shoot, Gabriele Galimberti, apologized on Instagram, claiming that he was "in no way authorized to choose neither the products, nor the models, nor the combination of the same".
Meanwhile, Balenciaga has filed a $25 million lawsuit against production company North Six, Inc. and set designer Nicholas Des Jardins over the alleged inclusion of legal documents from a US Supreme Court decision on child pornography laws in photos from the campaign submitted, according to the New York Post.
