Candace Owens Confronts Kim Kardashian for Her Silence on Balenciaga’s Child “Bondage” Gear Ad Campaign

Edited by: TJVNews.com

It appears that some celebrities are taking heat from fans for not being more vocal in their denunciations of Balenciaga for its controversial ad campaign that features very young children holding teddy bears dressed in bondage-style harnesses.

The New York Post reported among the celebs who are under scrutiny for their silence on the issue are Kim Kardashian and super model Bella Hadid.

Clearly, this new ad campaign that is meant to introduce Balenciaga’s new Objects collection, which features a range of items including lunch boxes, candles, travel pillows, dinnerware and more are displayed in the photos of child models holding dolls wearing bondage gear.  This has raised serious questions about whether the fashion house is engaging in moral turpitude and the sexual exploitation of children.

A November 23rd article that appeared on the conandaily.com web site indicated that Kardashian, 42, took to Instagram to share a photo of herself wearing Balenciaga and Adidas on November 21, 2022. Both brands, which recently collaborated, have severed their relationships with her former husband Kanye West, 45, after his anti-Semitic comments.

In the photo, Kardashian is wearing a silver Balenciaga turtleneck worth $1,350, as was reported by the conandaily.com site. She paired it with black and white shorts, both from the Balenciaga x Adidas collaboration, and thigh-high black Balenciaga boots worth $3,490.

On November 22, 2022, Balenciaga apologized in a series of Instagram posts for its recent campaign featuring child models holding teddy bears dressed in bondage gear. The campaign also included an image of a court document that has a reference to Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, in which the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a portion of the Child Pornography Prevention Act (CPPA) of 1996 and said that virtual child pornography is protected speech, as was reported by the conandaily.com web site.

Since Kardashian has remained silent on the Balenciaga “bondage gear” ad campaign in which young children are featured, nor has her public relations team issued a statement condemning the major fashion house, the Daily Wire’s Candace Owen, 33, has taken to Instagram to tell Kardashian what she thinks of her silence on this matter. Owens is friends with Kardashian’s ex-husband Kanye West and Owens appeared alongside West at the recently held fashion week in Paris where they both wore “White Lives Matter” t-shirts.   Since that time, Owens has boldly stood up for West in the wave of intense criticism that followed.

The conandaily.com reported that Owens offered this advice to Kardashian on Instagram.  “Kim Kardashian, girl, I know, I just know, you’re gonna find that same energy that you found, that you and your sister Khloe found to write a tweet against your husband condemning anti-Semitism and all of its forms that copied and pasted the same rhetoric that you meant nothing when you pasted it,” Owens said.

“But I know that since you found that energy to condemn that anti-Semitism, that you are gonna find the same energy, that same exact f-ing energy to stand up and to condemn Balenciaga because, girl, we know that you are desperate for fame. You sold your own body for it.”

“We know that all you ever wanted in your life was to be invited to Balenciaga parties, to be invited to places that Anna Wintour are in but, but we know that at the same time, you gonna find a little bit of whatever soul you have left to take a strong stance against child pornography and pedophilia,” Owens told Kardashian, as was reported on the conandaily.com web site. “Take a powerful stance by saying that you no longer rep this brand. It’s that easy.”

“A tweet will suffice,” Owens continued. “In fact, let me help you with the language. ‘I condemn child pornography and all of its forms and I no longer associate myself with Balenciaga, which just tried to pull the wool over society’s eyes by essentially saying that they are happy that laws were struck down against the Child Pornography Prevention Act because that’s what the Ashcroft decision was.’”

While Kardashian is not to blame for the Balenciaga campaign in question, she should use her platform to speak against it, according to Owens, as was reported on the conandaily.com web site. The conservative activist said to the brand’s ambassador, “I know you are just looking for the right words and that your silence and your recent posts draped in that exact same campaign is really you just sitting back trying to find the f-ing right words to say, that you will have nothing to do with this brand because otherwise, Kimmy, Kimmy, Kimmy, girl, if you don’t find that same f-ing energy that you found for Ye, the father of your children, to condemn him, to support your friends, you said, ‘I stand with my friends who are Jewish,’ why don’t we try a tweet that says ‘I stand with children all over the world that are being sex trafficked. I stand with every parent that has had to go through the trauma of having their children sexually trafficked or sexually abused.’?”

“Use that same energy, Kimmy, and put up a post and be done with Balenciaga and then I want you to reexamine yourself, okay?” Owens told Kardashian, according to a report on the conandaily.com web site. “Because we know what you’re doing. We know that you will say whatever it takes, you will do whatever it takes to maintain your fame.”

Owens continued by saying: “I want you to reexamine what it is that your ex-husband has been saying about what he believes his children is being exposed to because the fact that you are a part of this campaign, okay, this huge Balenciaga campaign, maybe you didn’t know, I’m not gonna put it on you but you sure as hell have known in the last 48 hours what’s going on and I think, as the lefts like to say, your silence is deafening,” Owens ended. “You, guys, are sick, twisted perverts in Hollywood but Kimmy, I’m gonna keep the faith alive that you are gonna do the right thing. Goodbye.”
