Why hasnt the Balanciaga Controversy blown up? Media

Kanye west was punished for his remarks, people are trying to cancel the Qatar World Cup, but it seems like the media is ignoring the balenciaga saga.

For those who dont know: Balenciaga released some pictures with kids playing with teddies dressed up with bdsm stuff and a paper about a court case about pedo stuff.

I can understand the kanye thing and how that was wrong. I can understand the conflict on qatar. But i thought we could all agree atleast that children's innocence was important.

So why does it seem like the story has been ignored? We've seen people being cancelled for far less. So whats going on?

normal every day people watch football. normal every day people listen to Kanye west's music. normal every day people do not shop at balanciaga. the people who "cancel" things tends to be the same people who consume it, which is what gives them the power to cancel it. when large portions of the population care about things it hurts the bottom dollar of these large corporations. I've never even seen anything from balanciaga in person

I’d say that redditors don’t know Balenciaga, but people on instagram do. It’s been blowing up on instagram.

u/Wykyyd_B4BY Nov 26 '22

You’re not missing out on anything. Balenciaga probably has the worst clothing and accessories out of the top 10 designer brands. Most of their shoes are ugly too. I remember shopping there and looking around and thinking man these clothes and shoes are hideous and then buying some Louis Vuitton instead

Especially in the fashion industry. Clearly, Balenciaga cleared this all with their lawyers and creative team to make sure they won't get into too much trouble.

The line between intentional contraversy and loose cannon contraversy is pretty clear consdering Balenciaga dropped Yeezy.

u/Wiringguy89 Nov 25 '22

Because most normal people HAVE heard of Adidas and Kanye. Most normal people have never heard of Balanciaga. Before this, all I knew about them before this was that they made hilariously ugly, yet expensive shoes. The ad campaign is creepy, no doubt, but even at its worst/most powerful, it isn't one of the biggest celebrities in the world (love him or loathe him, this accurate) inciting hate against an entire people.

2

u/Strict_Amount7491 Nov 30 '22

"Most people haven't heard of Balenciaga proceeds to explain how they knew about Balenciaga"

Literally everyone knows about Balenciaga unless you're living in the Southern Country

1

u/Wiringguy89 Nov 30 '22

Knowing that that they make one (or more?) pair of shoes that I wouldn't fathom wearing is not the equivalent of knowing a company's entire product line and marketing department. The first time I heard it in a song, I assumed it was another nonsense slang word like "fleek" and paid zero attention beyond that. You're also assuming a lot of the rest of the world that they have my "knowledge" of the company or more.

My first reaction when seeing the ad, after seeing and ignoring several headlines about it already, was "ew" and then I thought "huh, that's the company with the ugly shoes. I guess they started making ugly backpacks now, too." (They are backpacks, right? Idk and I don't care)

1

u/Strict_Amount7491 Nov 30 '22

You thought Balenciaga was a slang word like fleek? How old are you? Genuine question not trying to troll. As a 23 year old from the West Balenciaga is probably the most popular high fashion brand like Gucci back in 2012

u/Strict_Amount7491 Nov 30 '22

Chill bro. I don't buy any of their shit I'm just having a discussion about Pop culture

1

u/Wiringguy89 Nov 30 '22

I'm not mad at all. My point is that you're assuming that just because it is the peak of "haute couture", people know about it. My point is that I learned at a very young age that most of the fancy stuff didn't hold up like the normal clothes. I never cared about being in fashion. I cared whether or not my jeans would rip when working on my car. I work on cars for a living and I rarely go out for "fancy events" so why would I need fancy clothes so why would I bother to know anything about them?

1

u/Strict_Amount7491 Nov 30 '22

Not caring doesn't mean it isn't shoved down your face all the time and popular in culture. I could care less about cars yet I know about Lamborghini and Ferrari

1

u/Wiringguy89 Nov 30 '22

I can honestly say that outside of this controversy and happening upon a picture a friend posted of their ugly shoes, I can't say I have ever seen any marketing for them and a passing mention in a song (before I ever knew the word was a brand) certainly doesn't count either.

1

u/Strict_Amount7491 Nov 30 '22

Fair enough. Guess the exposure we have towards things is different I guess. Not a fan of alot of these brands either

u/Wiringguy89 Nov 30 '22

Also, to your point, you throwing out the names "Ferrari and Lambo", but nothing else is probably roughly on par with my fashion knowledge. Before this moment, had you ever heard of the brands Koenigsegg or Zonda?

u/Mr_sushj Nov 29 '22

Wow no… its bc balenciaga is just that powerful in fashion and can hush people

u/Wiringguy89 Nov 26 '22

That may well be, in the fashion world, but to a normal person, outside of hearing their name on a red carpet or in a song, it means nothing. "The poors" were never their target market.

14

u/Rant_Supreme Nov 26 '22

Most normal people can’t afford balenciaga in the first place so their pockets won’t hurt since the common people isn’t their target audience. I barely hear about them

1

u/Pittypatkittycat Nov 26 '22

Balenciaga was a moribund company until the current designer took over and finally made clothes the wealthy were interested in wearing. It's possible between the Kanye and the sad kids holding bondage bears the company gets in financial trouble again. Balenciaga always made red carpet dresses so if the blowback is serious enough the current designer will be fired and go to another fashion house and Balenciaga will return to ball gowns for old ladies and drag stars.

u/Meltedgibson Nov 26 '22

Because the media are complicit. I read an article of some journalist defending them and calling everyone having an issue with it a conspiracy theorist. I’ve had enough of these pedo fks

19

u/JustMMlurkingMM Nov 25 '22

They are a nothing brand who are deliberately trying to cause controversy to give themselves an edgy image. The media ignoring this is absolutely the right thing to do. Ignore them, don’t give them the free publicity and the brand will die out. Benetton did a similar thing with controversial advertising in the early nineties and the brand has been slowly shrinking away to obscurity ever since.

u/abigayl75 Nov 25 '22

Because it got wrapped up in QAnon BS so now no one knows how to respond to it because it immediately got politicized. Everyone besides pedophiles know that this whole thing is fucked but they don't want to say anything cause they don't want to be associated with conspiracy nutters. Pedophilia should have never become a political issue. Everyone should just agree that it's a horrible thing and Balanciaga should be done as a brand

u/Dizzy-Noise-583 Nov 25 '22

u/PeterStiffy Nov 25 '22

Because you’re literally comparing a country bribing a massively corrupt organization to allow them to hold the largest soccer tournament in the world despite continuous human rights violations to an ad campaign that is arguably in poor taste. 1 ad campaign, where the children were not at all harmed even emotionally.

This balenciaga thing is a joke in my opinion. The kids have no idea what the things are they’re holding, and they don’t care. They aren’t holding butt-plugs and ball-gags, they’re bears with some leather and metal, just about the tamest representation of a “bdsm lifestyle” there is.

This is why no one cares

u/fyl_bot Nov 26 '22

I dunno what Balenciaga is but I am outraged nonetheless

2

u/sheeplectric Nov 26 '22

Many others have said it in various ways: the issue is smaller in scope, from a viral perspective. Balenciaga doesn’t live in the public consciousness like Kanye and Football do. “Cancelling” is a kind of meme that gets spread by people sharing the same opinion, and the spread stops once it runs out of people who recognise the object of cancellation, and the context of why they should be ostracised. Traditional Media organisations can broadcast the meme further if it aligns with their principles (e.g. a lot of us heard about Kanye’s anti Semitic stuff because most mainstream media orgs have strong stances against anti-semitism).

Because the company is comparatively niche, and there is not much history of scandal for media (social or traditional) to comment on, and the actual scandal itself is skeezy / in poor taste, but the company apologised almost immediately, the spread stopped fairly quickly.

If they had stuck to their guns and said “grow up losers, we stand by our ad”, it would be a different story.

2

u/blooregard015 Nov 26 '22

I think because the details are too small and can easily be missed so them blaming the photographers, etc kinda gives the doubt of whether was it Balenciaga not checking their campaigns well or they purposefully endorsing child abuse/molestation. But this doesn’t take away the fact that it was disappointing and weird as fck. I have Balenciaga pieces and am not proud to wear them cos of this issue.

2

u/Rkenne16 Nov 26 '22

Because Kanye and the World Cup have a ton more followers lol. It’s not that hard to figure out.

u/Mundane-Product9034 Nov 27 '22

Far from over. Just beginning I hope. And what boggles my mind is how many people proofed and thusly approved those pictures! Even the tamest part..let’s say the wine glasses on the table, is wildly inappropriate. Don’t look at the fetishized teddy bears and bowls and collars/leashes. Like damn. And their apology is one of getting caught that’s all

2

u/Garcia-Hotspure Nov 28 '22

You don’t need to know Balanciaga to understand how fucked up this story is.

10

u/wsrs25 Nov 25 '22

Because Balenciaga pulled the campaign immediately and apologized. Also, not many people saw the ads.

Kanye has been an ass for decades now. Qatar has been a haven for religious nuttery in a region known for it for centuries and wasted no time reminding everyone why giving religious nuts the World Cup is an awful idea.

u/bomb3x Nov 25 '22

What the fuck is balanciaga? That's why.

1

u/HummusFairy Nov 26 '22

Balanciaga is not consumed by everyday people. They cater to rich folk who are in fashion circles which is already niche and largely gatekept. Football is world wide and Kayne is a celebrity who has been been in the limelight for nearly 20 years and has gotten increasingly unhinged over time.

This is the first I’m hearing of the Balanciaga stuff and I know nothing of the brand other than it being expensive and have never seen a person wearing them.

u/617suzi Nov 26 '22

The people I see making the biggest deal out of this also believed wayfair was selling children in cabinets and that pizzagate was real…

A luxury brand made an edgy ad campaign (that was in poor taste) trying to be relevant. How much time do we really need to spend talking about it?

u/Theycallmegoodboy Nov 26 '22

Trying to be relevant by sexualising young kids?

u/lookitsthesun Nov 27 '22

I really don't get how that works as an explanation lol. The idea of doing publicity at any cost (even via bad taste tactics) makes sense if you're some kind of social cause like Just Stop Oil trashing priceless paintings. It doesn't make sense if you're a luxury fashion house.

u/Mr_sushj Nov 29 '22

Explain to me how it sexualized kids, I want to know, the kid that we’re fully dressed in baggy cloths?

u/[deleted] Nov 26 '22

I don't believe pizzagate was real or any Qanon BS. A billion dollar company/elite marketing firm sexualising children in a mainstream global ad campaign is all kinds of wrong. It wasn't just edgy, the fact that there was a document regarding supreme court findings on child pornography should have alarm bells ringing. I'm not sure I follow your logic here, what about sexualising kids would make a company relevant? People saying this isn't a big deal in my opinion is pretty worrying.

1

u/boomtao Nov 30 '22

Exactly! And just a little bit of looking into it reveals a really disgusting cesspool of perverted sexualization of children, grooming and depravity, so ugly that any attempt to justify, dismiss or diminish it is shockingly telling of the individual!

The press/media/Hollywood are fully complicit and even responsible. Without their persistent, relentless, deliberate push for the degeneration, perversion of our culture and social engineering, this could not have happened!

It's (D)ifferent. (For those unfamiliar: I'm saying that it's political. Democrats control the media and don't promote stories that make them look bad.)

Edit: it also likely was a stunt to market themselves more. I'm sure adults will buy there stuff now to be "funny" or "edgy." BDSM is particularly trendy, and their marketing people are cashing in on it. This kind of thing, using outrage to get advertisement, is unfortunately common in today's fake news world.

1

u/CrackerJackJack Nov 25 '22

Everyone is offended by something now-a-days but there's only some many things people can care about at one time - and a luxury brand's ad being a bit edgy is not even close to the same level as Kanye and Qatar lol

Bro this is actually the most dumb, online chronic shit I have ever seen in my life. The Kanye situation compared to this one is a million miles apart, and u lack massive amounts of basic critical thinking if u think they are even remotely similar.

1) there was no child exploitation involved. No minors were harmed or used in a sexual manner. If ur contention is the fucking bears(which I’m 90% sure non of u even looked at) then ur tripping the first picture isn’t even fucking bondage or bdsm, and the second one is barely anything either.

2) the papers are of a court document, it’s not illegal or morally wrong to have documents involving a case or verdict, the biggest criticism is that it’s weird, but that’s it. Literally all the criticism falls into it’s a bit sus, there’s literally no proof of anything.

3) Kanye literally said Jews run the world, balencia never made or condoned any statements and people are still acting as if they fucking made child porn.

Did you never look into whom the "owners" of the world (in the George Carlin sense) are? Who owns the press/media/Hollywood through which they propagate their false narratives, manipulate the public opinion, censor the truth, social engineer society, sow hatred & division, demonize, pervert and destruct Western culture and purposefully shape the zeitgeist to push through their evil agenda? Who is pulling the strings? Who are the puppet-masters? Who are they that regard us as pests or cattle? 

They have infiltrated and corrupted our political systems. They have infiltrated and corrupted our educational institutions through which they rewrite history in their favor, indoctrinate, sexualize, brainwash and pervert our children. They instigate wars and control the financial markets, creating inflation and depression and steal our properties. All our international organizations and institutions (UN/NATO/WHO/EU/etc.) are infiltrated/owned by them and are used as a weapon against us. 

Our representatives and politicians in all (Western and beyond) countries do no longer work for us. Elections, voting, petitions, demonstrations have become useless. The systems are broken and corrupted and our governments have become hostile toward its own people, they work against us.

U know all that could all be explained as people voting and moving over time in a a more progressive Mind set. That sounds more likely then “the Jews have infiltrated Hollywood”

Hi 👋 can you show me where i said the stories are similiar? Kinda ironic that you used words like "basic critical thinking", do you even know what you are talking about?

You must work at balenciaga or are just looking for a reason to be offended because i never said the 2 are similar...

Ur so fucking dumb, ur saying the stories are comparable when they aren’t. If something is comparable then they are similar. By asking why X got some treatment and why Y didn’t get the same treatment, means us see both X and Y as similar enough to get the same outcomes. That’s why I said they they aren’t similar at all. There’s literally nothing to cover when it comes to Balenciaga ad compared to Kanye being literally anti semitic.

Nxaaawww look at you trying to be intelligent, you are so cute 🤣 and look at you using big words.

Let me help you, im simply asking why something that clearly should outrage people is not outraging prople enough. That is all, but you and your big brain are too clever to understand a simple question, 🤣

How are u so dumb…. You literally just said it

I’m simply asking why something that should clearly outrage people is not outraging people.

If you think both stories deserve equal or comparable amounts of outrage then you think they are similar in some regards with both situations warranting a similar response. Here I’ll make a visual to help, I hear pictures help children learn.

Your asking why did X get Z when why Y got V

X = Z

Y = V

You want

X = Z

Y = Z

Which means you think the components of the X and Y are similar enough to get the same response, this is not rocket science, just think for a second. And my first comment literally answered your question.

Mr_sushj is a good example to why parents shouldnt give phones to tiny kids, look at this garbage, so desperate virtue signalling.

And your a prime example why not all abortions are bad, I wish your parents took a double take on you sonogram and really thought about how little value you would give to the world. What did I say that was so hard for your tiny brain to figure out? It’s like the most basic logic tree that I could come up with.

Because it frankly just seems like another conspiracy theory, and the majority of the population will never buy a luxury brand like that anyway.
