Kylie Jenner shuts down claims she used her children to cover up for Balenciaga

“This is why I don’t do this.’

Kylie Jenner is hitting back at claims that she has only posted new photos of her children as a way of distracting from the Balenciaga controversy.

As the fashion house faces huge controversy over their Spring 2023 campaign, Kylie headed to her Instagram to share some snaps of her daughter Stormi and new baby son.

While she seemingly innocently posted the pictures, a TikTok user headed onto the app to make a video accusing Kylie and her mum Kris Jenner of “telling her kids to release the good photos after the Balenciaga scandal.”

The 25 year old took to the comment section of that video then to respond to the claim, denying that that was what she was doing.

The reality star wrote: “Uh, whyyyyy would I post my child to cover up for Balenciaga? This is why I don’t do this. Always something to say.”

The video came after Balenciaga were forced to release a statement apologising for their latest campaign as it included images of young children holding teddy bears dressed in bondage.

One image also showed paperwork about a Supreme Court ruling on child pornography on a table and the images have since been removed following the backlash.

They said: “We would like to address the controversies surrounding our recent ad campaigns. We strongly condemn child abuse; it was never our intent to include it in our narrative.

“The two separate ad campaigns in question reflect a series of grievous errors for which Balenciaga takes responsibility.

“The first campaign, the gift collection campaign, featured children with plush bear bags dressed in what some have labelled BDSM-inspired outfits. Our plush bear bags and the gift collection should not have been featured with children.

“This was a wrong choice by Balenciaga, combined with our failure in assessing and validating images. The responsibility for this lies with Balenciaga alone.”
