"The devil wears Prada" takes on a new meaning these days. Hollywood and the elite have been trying to sell us their lies for decades now- and they've finally said the quiet part out loud.
Prominent luxury fashion brand Balenciaga has received heavy backlash for a recent campaign in which they featured children with teddy bears clad in what can only be described as bondage gear. If you haven't seen the photos, we'll attach some below, with the minors' faces blurred for their protection.
As you can see, it doesn't take much digging to plainly see that these images should have never been taken. The empty wine glasses paired with BDSM paraphernalia is anything but high fashion- This is inappropriate fetishizing of innocent children.
Outrage ensued, and Balenciaga issued a brief statement claiming they "strongly condemn child abuse," going on to say, "..it was never our intent to include it in the narrative". This statement might have been sufficient for some, but not for online sleuths who chose to dig deeper. Many found details that appear to be outright satanic. Here's where it gets disturbing.
What on earth does this have to do with high fashion? Absolutely nothing. And everything. The brand claimed the props were randomly chosen by a third party production company. Do you think this was an accident? Here are a couple more details we want to focus on:
Starting on the left of the above image, you can see a few dates written on the wall. The first date written is "12.09.2021". The top news story of the day back on December 9th of 2021 was former TV star Josh Duggar being found guilty of the possession of child sexual abuse imagery, among other related charges. Another date we see is February 3rd, 2019, a day on which a popular news story was that of an Arkansas man being sentenced to jail time for similar charges. Coincidence, though, right?
Food for further thought: the CEO of Balenciaga's parent company also owns a site that is known for selling mannequins of children with horribly sexual and graphic additions. We will not be attaching photos because it is far too graphic, so research this topic at your own discretion. The parent company in question also owns Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen, and more. This issue runs deep in the world of high fashion and the elite.
When you type these issues into a search bar, you are met with a Google-generated warning urging you to "check your sources" and question whether or not they are "trusted on this topic". This is paired with headlines suggesting any accusations against the famed fashion brand are fueled by nonsense QAnon conspiracy theorists, and should be treated as just that.
Our take? This was no accident. The sexualization of our children has been on the agenda of major corporations for decades. Part of our calling as Christians is to speak up for those who don't have a voice of their own, and the most voiceless of these times is our children. Over 800,000 children go missing each year. Human trafficking is a billion dollar industry. The pornography industry is large part to blame for this epidemic. Do not let "scandals" such as these be left in the dust of yesterday's news. Hold corporations accountable for their not-so-secret secrets. Research the brands you are purchasing from. Pray for our world.
