Brittany Aldean discards Balenciaga bags after children’s controversial ad campaign
After receiving criticism for an offensive commercial campaign, Brittany Aldean trashed her Balenciaga bags and other belongings and posted a photo of the event on Wednesday.
Images of toddlers dressed in sexually suggestive costumes carrying teddy bears were part of a holiday ad that Balenciaga has since dropped. Photographs of two young girls carrying plush animals that were restrained in leather harnesses were removed from Balenciaga’s website last week after they sparked outrage. Documents from a United States government agency were supposedly included in the collection. a federal statute prohibiting the sexual exploitation of minors has reached the Supreme Court.
The snapshot was captioned, “It’s trash day,” by Aldean, a mother of two.
Balenciaga posted a public apology on its Instagram stories last week and subsequently deleted all of the photos from their account.
Our plush bear backpacks should not have been shown with children in this holiday promotion, and we deeply regret any hurt this may have caused.
Furthermore, they stated that they “take this matter very sincerely and are taking legal action against the parties responsible for creating the set and including unapproved items for our spring 23 campaign photoshoot,” and that they were sorry for “displaying unsettling documents” in their campaign.
Although she is currently married to country music artist Jason Aldean, Aldean has previously made headlines for her outspoken views on children, particularly those who identify as the opposite gender.
“I think that children should not be allowed to make these life-changing decisions at such a young age,” she said to Tucker Carlson in September. “They are not mature enough; they should have parents who love them and advocate for them regardless. We have ages on everything. We have it for cigarettes, driving, military, voting … yet for some reason people think that we can let a child choose their gender so young? It’s very baffling to me.”
Aldean made these statements after receiving criticism for praising her parents for not transgendering her during a “tomboy” phase.
