"We strongly condemn abuse of children in any form" Balenciaga apologises after accusations it sexualised children in ads

Nov 23, 2022

Balenciaga has apologised for its advert campaign that angered people.

 

The fashion brand was called out after sharing promotional photos of children carrying  dolls with bondage-like clothing.

 

To make matters worse, among the promotional photos was a court document with words like “pornography” and “sexual intercourse”.

 

They were slammed for the campaign and people called on customers to boycott them (read here).

 

Balenciaga has now apologised.

 

The company said it strongly condemns child abuse and will investigate and ensure that those responsible for the advert are held accountable.
