See It: Brittany Aldean Takes a Swipe at Balenciaga With Daring Photo Following Controversial Ad Campaign

Brittany Aldean posted a photo of herself throwing out her Balenciaga bags and other items on Wednesday after the brand drew backlash over a controversial ad campaign.

Balenciaga’s now-scrapped holiday campaign featured imagery of children holding teddy bears in sexually suggestive costumes. Balenciaga pulled the controversial photos last week, which showed two young girls holding stuffed animals that were wearing leather harnesses. Part of the set allegedly included documents from a U.S. Supreme Court case involving a federal child pornography law.

“It’s trash day,” Aldean, a mother of two, captioned the photograph.

Balenciaga wrote an apology on its Instagram stories last week and then scrubbed their account of all the images.

“We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms,” the brand wrote.

They also apologized for “displaying unsettling documents” in their campaign, adding that they “take this matter very serious and are taking legal action against the parties responsible for creating the set and including unapproved items for our spring 23 campaign photoshoot.”
