High-End Fashion Brand Ads Show Young Kids Holding Sex Bondage Teddy Bears With Child Porn Court Papers In Background

A keen Twitter user going by “Shoe” posted screenshots of an advertising campaign for the luxury fashion brand Balenciaga showing disturbing images of young children holding stuffed animals wearing bondage gear.

Perhaps the most unusual part of the ad campaign was that a paper document on a table in one of the images talks about a child pornography court case.

In a Twitter thread posted Monday, Shoe wrote, “the brand ‘Balenciaga’ just did a uh….. interesting… photoshoot for their new products recently which included a very purposely poorly hidden court document about ‘virtual child porn’ normal stuff.”

The thread also pointed out the fashion brand left Twitter less than a week ago, with Shoe writing, “interesting timing.”

Their Instagram page has over 14 million followers.

Any potential US ban would cost the company more than a fifth of the company’s total revenue.
