Balenciaga campaign star Nicole Kidman slammed for silence on ad sc&al


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.

While Hadid, 26, scrubbed her Instagram of some (but not all) of her photos from the previous campaign amid the backlash, Kidman’s post is still up — & her followers have noticed.

“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.”

The “Huge Little Lies” star has yet to issue a statement on the Balenciaga ad controversy.

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?”

Balenciaga was criticized for its ads depicting children clutching teddy bears in bondage gear.

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.”

Kim Kardashian issued a statement on Twitter about the offensive ads.

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.
