Photographer Hired For Balenciaga ‘Kiddie BDSM’ Shoot Says He’s Being Made a Scapegoat

The photographer hired by Balenciaga to take shots of children holding BDSM teddy bears says he is being made into a scapegoat by the fashion company.

As we highlighted yesterday, there was uproar after images to promote Balenciaga’s Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023 collection showed young girls holding plush bear bags adorned with bondage gear.

The bears are seen wearing padlocks, fishnets, leather harnesses, as well as ankle and wrist restraints.

Another photo court showed documents concerning Ashcroft v Free Speech Coalition, a 2002 Supreme Court case. The case struck down a portion of the Child Pornography Prevention Act (CPPA) of 1996, ruling that “virtual” child pornography is protected speech.

Despite some ‘fact checkers’ labeling the issue an “absurd conspiracy theory,” Balenciaga publicly apologized for the controversy and said they were pursuing legal action against those responsible.

The fashion label claimed the photoshoot included “unapproved” items that were not given the green light to appear in the campaign.

However, it now appears this may have just been a deliberate ploy to deflect blame.

Famous photographer Gabriele Galimberti said the shoot was intended to be based on the theme of giving and receiving gifts, drawing inspiration from his “toy story” photography series.

Mr Galimberti responded to Balenciaga’s threat of legal action by telling Newsweek: “I am not in a position to comment [on] Balenciaga’s choices, but I must stress that I was not entitled in whatsoever manner to neither choose the products, nor the models, nor the combination of the same.”

In other words, Galimberti is claiming Balenciaga threw him under a bus and that the company itself was responsible for creating the pedo-friendly photo shoot set up.

The argument that the scandal represents something rotten within Balenciaga was bolstered by other evidence.

As a Twitter user highlighted, in a separate Balenciaga photo shoot, a book by Michaël Borremans, a Belgian painter, appears on the desk next to a model.

Some of Borremans’ paintings depict naked children who appear to be traumatized or involved in some kind of abusive environment.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian, an ambassador for Balenciaga, has refused to comment on the issue, despite publicly condemning her soon to be ex-husband Kanye West for offensive words he posted on Twitter.

NY Times Claims Balenciaga Pedo Scandal Is QAnon Conspiracy Theory

“The controversy has become one of the most explicit collisions of internet culture, politics, fashion and conspiracy theories to date.”

In the wake of the ongoing Balenciaga pedophilia propaganda scandal, the New York Times produced a piece Tuesday that essentially claimed the entire thing is some sort of QAnon conspiracy theory.

In the report, the Times suggests that only the likes of QAnon, Tucker Carlson, The New York Post, and Fox News are spreading the idea that the luxury fashion brand condones child exploitation.

The piece states “they ignited a firestorm that traveled from the internet to Fox News, fueled by allegations that Balenciaga condoned child exploitation. The controversy has become one of the most explicit collisions of internet culture, politics, fashion and conspiracy theories to date.”

It further posits that “As online criticism of the campaigns spread, the story was picked up across right-leaning media outlets, including The New York Post and the prime time Fox News show Tucker Carlson Tonight. The show has helped to publicize and mainstream QAnon, the internet conspiracy theory that ‘a group of Satan-worshiping elites who run a child sex ring are trying to control our politics and media.'”

The report adds “Here you have a major international retail brand promoting kiddie porn and sex with children,” Mr. Carlson told viewers on Nov. 22, “and not promoting it subtly but right out in the open.”

A reminder of the shoot in question…

Go down the rabbit hole and it’s even more brutal…

The fashion company even apologised and brought a lawsuit against the ad agency responsible.

Many charged that the Times is protecting the fashion label:

    Video: Disney Show Has Kids Hold Up Sign Saying “WE LOVE YOU SATAN”

    Not a good look in wake of Balenciaga scandal

    A new Disney Christmas show features a group of children holding up signs that spell out “WE LOVE YOU SATAN,” prompting a backlash from many, particularly in the wake of the Balenciaga scandal.

    The incident occurs in the series called Santa Clauses, a Disney + spin off of the popular Tim Allen movies.

    Each child holds up a letter, which is supposed to spell out “We Love You Santa,” but a couple of the kids end up in the wrong position.

    Obviously, the scene is intended for comic effect, but it isn’t playing well.

    The scene comes amid further revelations of designers associated with fashion label Balenciaga promoting satanism, following on from a weird photo shoot which sexualized kids.

    As we previously highlighted, despite news outlets declaring the issue to be a “conspiracy theory,” the fashion label was forced to apologize.

    Disney angered many parents earlier this year by throwing its weight and funding behind gender reassignment procedures, even for kids, as well as featuring transgender and LGBT characters:

    The company was also heavily criticised by Florida governor Ron De Santis  following Disney’s public rebuke of his “Parents Rights in Education” bill which prevents children as young as kindergarten age being taught about transgender and gay sex issues in schools.

    Tucker Carlson charged that Disney has a “fixation on the sexuality of children” pointing to recent reports that four employees of the media giant were charged with human trafficking in Florida, with one having allegedly sent sexually explicit texts to an law enforcement agent posing as a teenage child.
