It looks like Nicole Kidman’s eyes are wide shut after all.
The Oscar winner stars in Balenciaga’s spring 2023 campaign, posing in a polished office setting alongside the likes of Bella Hadid & Isabelle Huppert.
Now, social media users are calling on Kidman to condemn another series of ads from the br&, which feature children toting bags shaped like teddy bears dressed in bondage gear.
“This br& is attempting to indoctrinate the culture with darkness,” one bold commenter wrote. “Sexualizing toddlers is never okay,” another added.
“What if those were your little girls in that campaign,” a third chimed in, while a fourth wrote in all caps, “WHERE IS YOUR STATEMENT.”
Another fired-up commenter pointed out that fellow former Balenciaga campaign star Kim Kardashian has publicly condemned the br&’s teddy bear ads, asking Kidman, “Why the silence here?”
In a statement shared on Twitter Sunday night, Kardashian wrote, “I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been disgusted & outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to underst& for myself how this could have happened.”
Continued the star, “As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images. The safety of children must be held with the highest regard & any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period.”
Kardashian, who in addition to posing for Balenciaga ads has walked the house’s runway & worn the br& on multiple red carpets over the years, also said she’s “currently re-evaluating [her] relationship” with Balenciaga, “basing it off their willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to Start with — & the actions [she is] expecting to see them take to protect children.”
A representative for Nicole Kidman didn’t immediately respond to Page Six Style’s request for comment.
