“I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been disgusted and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened.”

Moreover, Kardashian continued, she doesn’t support the action of Balenciaga even though she has worked many times with the. As a mother of four, she is against this and will be forever. Besides this, Balenciaga apologizes at that time after their ad went viral. They posted an Instagram story saying that they are really sorry for their cause. In addition, they stated,
