Did Bella Hadid Delete Her Recent Balenciaga Posts?
The model faced backlash as a result of the brand’s latest campaign.
Hadid posted pictures from the new campaign on her feed, which were reportedly deleted on Wednesday. The new campaign was created to display the brand’s Objects line and featured a number of children holding plush toys, bizarrely dressed in bondage. Shortly after the campaign was released, users on Twitter noticed that one image appeared to include a poorly hidden court document about ‘virtual child porn,’ causing people to question the brand’s ethics and intentions.
The model recently appeared in Balenciaga’s Garde-Robe campaign alongside Nicole Kidman, and before that was one of the main stars of the brand’s collaborative campaign with adidas. Images from Hadid’s adidas campaign still appear on her social media, but anything more recent has likely been deleted after the model received backlash regarding her support for the brand, also leading to the phrase ‘#BalenciagaGate’ to trend on Twitter.
Stay tuned for more details.
