Kim Kardashian’s fans are asking her to speak out against Balenciaga after the brand was accused of child-impersonation in its latest holiday campaign.
News of the reality star’s latest Instagram posts has been raising questions about her relationship with the luxury label since Saturday. Kardashian often wears Balenciaga to major events, and in the past has been prominently featured in many of the brand’s campaigns.
The Skims founder posted a photo of himself wearing his shirt from Balenciaga’s collaboration with Adidas on Tuesday’s Instagram. On Saturday, most of the big news on the media was about the fashion house.
“Blame it balenciaga have you seen their ads? You have 4 kids!” one user wrote in the comments.
On Tuesday, Balenciaga apologized for the ads, which featured children wearing teddy bear bags that had been rigged with accessories. Articles refer to a Supreme Court decision upholding a law against child pornography that was also used in photographs.
“We deeply apologize for any offense caused by our holiday program. Our pearl bags were not shown to children in this program,” the brand said in a statement shared on social media, saying that he has removed the images from all platforms. and strongly against “child abuse in any form.”
Kardashian’s fans continued to talk about Balenciaga on Instagram photos of her sleeping children and her brand’s holiday sales.

“You want to see a story about balenciaga before seeing this. Your silence on this matter is deafening,” one comment read.
“I see more comments about you supporting the pedophilic trend line than people appreciating your lame compliment,” wrote another commenter.
Representatives for Kardashian did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
