Brittany Aldean is saying goodbye to Balenciaga.
The mother of two and wife of country singer ジェイソンアルディーン shared on Instagram on Wednesday that she was done with the designer label amid its controversial campaigns. She posted a picture of herself with her Balenciaga clothes and accessories in clear plastic bags and captioned the 写真, “It’s trash day.”
Her husband left a comment on the photo with clapping hands emojis, 書き込み, “show em how to ‘walk the walk’ ベイブ!” and plenty of other people left similar sentiments.
Aldean’s action no doubt is a result of the fashion house coming under fire after recent ad campaigns. The holiday campaign depicted children holding teddy bears dressed in what appears to be bondage and the Spring ’23 ad campaign involved a reference to a Supreme Court case on child porn.
The holiday campaign launched on Nov. 16 and saw immediate backlash. カメラマン, Gabriele Galimberti, issued a statement a week later, Instagramに書く, 彼は “was not entitled in whatsoever manner to neither chose [ママ] the products, nor the models, nor the combination of the same.”
Balenciaga then issued a statement on Instagram before filing a $25 million lawsuit against North Six and the Garde-Robe set designer Nicholas Des Jardins, alleging that both took part in “inexplicable acts and omissions” that were “malevolent or, 少なくとも, extraordinarily reckless.”
The brand released a further statement on Instagram 11月. 28, 書き込み, “We strongly condemn child abuse; it was never our intent to include it in our narrative. The two separate ad campaigns in question reflect a series of grievous errors for which Balenciaga takes responsibility.”

Aldean, 34, recently found herself embroiled in her own controversy, when she posted an インスタグラム in August with the caption, “I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girly life.”
She was swiftly called out by musicians マレンモリス, Cassadee Pope と Joy Oladokun for the transphobic comment. モリス ツイート, “It’s so easy to, お気に入り, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie,” どれの, 順番に, earned her a reputation as a “lunatic” from conservatives including Tucker Carlson.
Morris has taken the conversation in stride. 彼女 made and sold shirts that said, “Lunatic Country Music Person” and donated the proceeds to Trans Lifeline and the GLAAD Transgender Media Program. Her donation totaled over $150K.
