Balenciaga exploits children in BDSM-fetish themed ads - *Updated: WIN! BDSM-fetish themed ads featuring children gone!

Take action! Tell Balenciaga to remove bondage themed ads featuring children

From Reduxx:
'Luxury fashion house Balenciaga is raising child safeguarding concerns after launching a new ad campaign featuring children and bondage-themed toys that many are calling “disturbing.”
In one photo, taken from the main page of Balenciaga’s US site, the child is standing on a pink bed holding a teddy bear wearing a fishnet top, collar with lock, and ankle and wrist restraints. In the full-sized version of the image, a second teddy bear is visible in the bedroom wearing a collar and blindfold.
In the second image, taken from the gift shop’s catalogue, a different child model is seen standing on a couch holding a teddy bear that is wearing a leather chest harness and collar. As in the first, a second teddy bear is visible in the room wearing more leather gear.
“The mainstreaming of harnesses has always been weird but this is extra. The kids don’t know it’s fetish gear but the adults seeing these pics sure do,” another user stated.'
