AKA Gives An Unexpected Response To The Balenciaga Scandal

When asked to comment on the scandal rocking fashion, rapper AKA said Balecianga was the last thing on his mind.

The rapper stated on Twitter that he has no desire to comment on the controversy.

Balenciaga withdrew photos from its Spring/Summer 2023 advertising campaign last week.

Two images showed children holding teddy bear-shaped handbags with black leather straps and silver studs.

The advertisements sparked outrage on social media, with the brand being accused of child pornography.

“AKA you need to address the Balenciaga issue! Make your voice heard!! … … f**k outta here,” tweeted one.

On Instagram on November 28, the band addressed the matter: “We strongly condemn child abuse; it was never our intent to include it in our narrative.”

It admitted a lack of oversight and judgment, saying: “The two separate ad campaigns in question reflect a series of grievous errors for which Balenciaga takes full responsibility.

“While internal and external investigations are ongoing, we are taking the after-actions. We are closely revising our organisation and collective ways of working. We are reinforcing the structures around our creative processes and validation steps. We want to ensure that new controls mark a pivot and will prevent this from happening again.”
