Celebrities Cut Ties With Balenciaga After MyPillow Spotted In Photo Shoot | Eastern North Carolina Now

    NEW YORK, NY     Balenciaga is facing a wave of online criticism after a MyPillow pillow was spotted in the background of one of the company's photo shoots for its winter collection. The CEO of MyPillow Mike Lindell is known for his strong support of Donald Trump.

    "I was shocked and appalled when I noticed the MyPillow in the background of the photo shoot featuring underage kids holding teddy bears dressed in bondage gear," said long-time Balenciaga promoter Kim Kardashian. "Mike Lindell has dangerous views, and I'm horrified that Balenciaga would choose to feature his incredibly comfortable pillow in their ads." Kardashian then tweeted a video of herself burning her vast Balenciaga collection and urged others to do the same, using the hashtag "#BurnBalenciBurn."

    Balenciaga had just survived a small scandal involving another controversial ad campaign that featured children alongside bondage materials, but the MyPillow scandal is threatening to sink the fashion company once and for all.

    "Child abuse is one thing," said progressive activist Asher Carroll. "But being open to conservative viewpoints and buying a pillow from someone who supports the January 6 rioters, that is truly unforgivable."

    Balenciaga has issued a statement apologizing for the MyPillow inclusion. The statement reads, in part, "this is the worst thing we have ever done. It was an accident, and it will not happen again." Kim Kardashian, Isabelle Huppert, Tommy Blue, Hailey Bieber, and Justin Bieber have all abandoned the brand.
