Balenciaga is taking major heat for a truly messed up clothing campaign! On Tuesday, the high-fashion house had to apologize to their customers after fans called them out for featuring children cuddling teddy bears dressed in bondage gear in their latest ad campaign shot by Gabriele Galimberti.

WTF?! In one pic, a young child, dressed in the Balenciaga Kids line, stood on a couch holding a fluffy purple bear dressed in what appears to be BDSM attire while several empty glasses sat nearby.

Another photo saw a different child standing on a bed with an equally odd stuffed animal, which is apparently a purse. You can see the inappropriate photos if you so choose HERE!

According to a press release issued last week via CNN, the “campaign iterates on the artist’s series Toy Stories, an exploration of what people collect and receive as gifts.” Um, in what world are children receiving these kinds of bears?!

The company also explained the line featured “dozens of new products ranging from homeware, petwear and scent, from everyday items to limited-edition collectibles and bespoke furniture.” And apparently sexualized bears, too!
