He Balenciaga finally released its own statement, agreeing to his statement and accepting responsibility for the campaign.
It has been removed from internet.
Hidden porn files for children
After The BDSM is a fiasco. Eager critics began to examine the rest Balenciaga campaigns.
Soon, they discovered that the background of the Spring ’23 image was actually a printout from the Supreme Court regarding whether internet child porn is legal.

Balenciaga quickly blamed North Six, a production firm that helped organize the shoot, and for including those documents.

Misan Harriman is the chair of London’s Southbank Centre. He is also a photographer.
The average man and women need to go see the leaders of the industry, the stakeholders in the sector, and call out the abuse of children within this industry. This should rise above the parties you’re attending in this winter season and the shows you’re going to.
‘This moment is on you – you have to decide whether you can know that children are not being protected by the industry that feeds you – or have polite indifference,’ he said.
Nigel Farage, a former politician and TV host in the UK, asked why the scandal was not getting more attention from the media.
Balenciaga stars are being called out by many for distancing themselves from the brand.
“We live in cancel culture but only if we have conservative opinions. If you’re on a left-leaning party and you support pedophilia everyone stays schtum. He said it was disgusting.
