Kim Kardashian is refusing to cut ties with the fashion house Balenciaga, despite a controversy involving the fashion house that saw the company linked to a fashion shoot that placed children alongside BDSM-themed items.
Kardashian, who has been in business with the company for several years spoke out days after the company had already apologized for the scandal.
The reality TV star, 42, said that while she was ‘shaken’ and ‘disgusted’ to see the images in the controversial ad campaign, she had wanted to speak with officials at the designer to understand how it came to be.
Clearly embarrassed by their ill-judged campaign, Balenciaga took the drastic step of wiping its social media pages clean.
‘I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been shocked 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,’ the Los Angeles-born celebrity said in a statement on her Instagram page.
