It’s Worse Than We Thought: Balenciaga Replaces Child BDSM-Themed Ads with New Creepy Campaign that Features Belgian Painter Known for “Pedophilia, Blood Ritual, Occultism, Cannibalism,Racism”

Balenciaga is getting slammed once again in a new ad campaign for featuring a book by controversial artist Michael Borremans, whose work has been linked to pedophilia, cannibalism, and blood rituals.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that the high-end fashion brand Balenciaga has received internet backlash for a creepy ad that features two young girls holding stuffed animals dressed in what looks to be bondage gear.

The company also advertised a handbag with a copy of the Supreme Court’s decision in a child pornography case as a prop.

The creepy ad sparked outrage online for normalizing child pornography.

On Tuesday, Balenciaga issued an apology for their creepy child BDSM-themed photoshoot for the Spring/Summer 2023 collection that featured sexualized stuffed toys and child porn documents.

Following the backlash, the company pulls controversial ads. The company replaced it with a red-hair model holding an “Hourglass Small Croc-Embossed Top-Handle Bag.”

In the background, Balenciaga had a copy of Michael Borremans’s book sitting on the desk next to the model.

Research conducted by Twitter user @itsnatlydenise about the book reveals some dark and disturbing facts.

Michaël Borremans (born 1963) is a Belgian painter and filmmaker who lives and works in Ghent.

Several prestigious American institutions, such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York, feature his artwork.

The themes in Borremans’ paintings are very disturbing. They include pedophilia, blood rituals, dark religion, occultism, racism, and cannibalism.

Watch the video below:

It doesn’t stop there. According to @itsnatlydenise, the bottom book is “The Cremaster Cycle” by Matthew Barney.

Another ad featured what appears to be a “College Month Honorarium”(?) with John Phillip Fisher’s name on it.

Balenciaga has now deleted its Instagram posts, and the photos were removed from its website.
