'Burn that Balenciaga!' Teresa Giudice slammed for posing in white sweater amid brand controversy
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Teresa Giudice is facing backlash from netizens after she posed for photographs wearing a Balenciaga outfit amid ongoing controversy associated with the luxury brand. The high-end fashion wear recently released its campaign photos of children holding BDSM teddy bears, which are now being deleted. The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ famed star was seen wearing a white sweater with the Balenciaga label printed all over, while vacationing in Paris with her husband Louie Ruelas.
The photos were posted on Instagram on Friday, November 25, by Ruelas and soon started generating negative reactions from fans, appealing her to cancel the brand. One wrote, “We love you but burn that Balenciaga!!!!” The other said, “@teresagiudice I love you but please do not endorse this brand. You’ll see why, it’s disturbing.” The other chimed in, “Love you Tre but take off that sweater girl!” “Balenciaga…GREAT, another person to unfollow! You do realize there is normalizing child bondage, right? Are you ok with that? Shameful! UN FOLLOW! [sic],” another added.

The 50-year-old star did not acknowledge the negative comments, nor has her representative respond yet. Many celebrities endorsing the famous brand Balenciaga have remained mum over the ongoing controversy, including Kim Kardashian. The other big names remaining silent are Christine Quinn, Alexa Demie, Nicole Kidman, Dua Lipa, and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family who chose not to talk about it, reported PageSix.
However, Lala Kent, of ‘Vanderpump Rules’ didn’t waste time criticizing the brand ad campaign. “I’m sure I’ll be shadowbanned… again, for posting this- but I have to,” Kent wrote in her Instagram story. The mother-of-one said, “I’m proud to not own one single piece of Balenciaga,” adding that the public “need[s] to know what that document under the Balenciaga bag says." “If you zoom in, it SEEMS to state some horrifying words,” she pointed out, as per the report. “Y’all- we need to do better,” she further added. The 31-year-old appealed to her followers to “reject the darkness” and “find the light." Kent wrote, “The well-being of our world and it’s [sic] innocent beings depends on it.”
Balenciaga had removed the campaign from all platforms on Tuesday, November 22, and apologized for both featuring children and "displaying unsettling documents." "We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms,” Balenciaga said in a statement, as reported by the New York Post. The holiday ad was part of their label’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection.
