Why Lala Kent Blasts Balenciaga
Not minding if she will be shadowbanned again, the Vanderpump Rules star blasted Balenciaga for not caring about the innocence of children. In the post she made via her Instagram story, Lala said documents added to the campaign photos had some “horrifying” words written on them.
She called out to the public to zoom it out to have a closer look and then added, “Y’all- we need to do better.” The 31-year-old mother of one also demanded that her followers reject darkness and find light.
Lala’s Response To Balenciaga’s Statement
On Tuesday, Balenciaga reacted to the condemnation against them over their campaign. They removed the ads from their various platforms apologizing for featuring children and displaying unsettling documents.
In their statement, the brand defended itself by stating that they “strongly condemn” any form of child abuse and were already pursuing legal action against the people in charge of designing the set and including the prohibited goods. In response to the statement, the Bravolebrity wrote:
“Yo, @balenciaga- YOU ARE THE PARTY RESPONSIBLE.”
Lala Kent blasted Balenciaga again by adding that most brands assume the public to be stupid, thinking they won’t notice. However, she wrote that the public wouldn’t keep shut anymore as they would protect every child. Lala appears to be all out to protect the children’s future in any way she can. While everyone may not be okay with how she is going about it, her motives are pure and quite admirable.
