“I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been disgusted and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened.”

She further elaborated by stating that she was shaken by the disturbing images. She admitted:

“As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images. The safety of children must be held with the highest regard, and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period.”

The whole outrage over the Balenciaga campaign hasn't seemed to settle, as it was just two days ago that Kim’s ex-husband, Kanye West also raised his voice on the disturbing campaign and called out the celebrities for not reacting to the same. Emphasizing how “all celebrities are controlled,” Kanye said:

“Nobody is talking about the Balenciaga situation. This just shows you all of these celebrities out here - don’t let them influence you in any way because they, in turn, are controlled by the people who really influence the world.”

At the same time, Balenciaga’s shoot’s photographer, Gabriele Galimberti, too, has filed an apology. However, the brand has filed a $25 million lawsuit against the production company North Siz, Inc. and set designer Nicholas Des Jardins to include documents and bondage in the campaign pictures.
