Lmao she tested the waters and then whipped this out when she realized people weren’t having any of her shit


Necessary_Choice5322

Yep! She’s going to wait to see if Balenciaga will offer her more money to stay with them and then decide.


justsackpat

She should stay away


2001camrydriver

oh she will.

Are people actually surprised she doesn’t give a shit ? Like this is Kim we’re talking about ….🤷🏻‍♀️


smokeyeyepie

I saw someone say this was the final straw for them and I was like ?? 💀 it took you this long??


beybeybeybeybe

Kim literally exploits her own children ffs


PoisedbutHard

She will eat shit to stay young...


sharkyfernwood12

Bingo 🤣


homeostasis555

How long between her first post and this one?


genescheesesthatplz

Skskskkkk nailed it


redditjunkie777

Damn kim really doesn’t want to cut ties with balencaca


greenestbean23

Because who else would want her


Isabe113

Shein.


noooonan

Ricardo and Olivier.. in a second


Isabe113

It's different working with somebody on a few looks - but being the face of a company? I can't see it. It would be Kylie if anything with Olivier. Tisci I'm not sure about.


stircrazygremlin

Olivier absolutely, not sure about Ricardo but eh maybe.


glorifyi

She’s still one of the most recognizable and influential people on the planet - she’d have no trouble finding another fashion house. She’s not cutting ties with them simply because she doesn’t want to which makes this so much worse.


Tangerine-d

People really love to trash Kim and the rest of the fam but in the end they are high profile, beautiful, and pull a lot of worth. People will dress them. People will FIGHT to dress them.


StrawberryKiss2559

Forever 21


kitten_mitt3n5

She bought into the poots concept


QuinnKinn

Prob all the freebies


Kiwwiiii

Balencaca 😂💀


sweetsugar888

She could put on some good fitting jeans and a t shirt and you know what, people would like it. She could take a break from her alien clothes and remember she’s a person Their clothes are ugly anyway. And didn’t she just win an award for helping babies and little kids? Smh. Values, doll.


Passingtime528

The timing of that award could not have been worse!


anothergirl22

Their clothes are seriously so ugly lol. I don’t get the fascination. One dimensional, boring, followers. They try so hard and nobody bites.


[deleted]

What expensive brand will want to work with her


Ok-Leave-7525

Kim responding to feedback in real time like an AI


phillyschmilly

Bullshit. They’ll make a donation somewhere and she’ll say that’s good enough


Jolly_Discipline6650

To Kris’ church so it can be laundered back


roxy7-

100% this! I wouldn't be surprised if this is the way it actually goes down.


DisastrousAge4650

AS A MOTHER OF FOUR, THERE SHOULD BE NO TIME SPENT MULLING OVER THIS VILE SHIT! COUNT YOUR LOSSES. The only thing I can think of that might be a point of contention is being left open for a lawsuit for terminating the contract but let’s be real for a minute Kimberly, you are no stranger to that. Furthermore, receiving the legal backlash from Balenciaga would probably help paint you in better light for actually having a spine.


Isabe113

She can afford it.


2001camrydriver

i just think she wants people to think she’s even considering it. there is no way she’ll actually walk away, if she was that offended by the ads she would’ve been gone by now


roxy7-

The backlash is getting to her. She added this an hour later after the original statement. Love to see it. Also, re-evaluating??? Child exploitation should not need to be re-evaluated. This makes no sense and is honestly...complete bullshit. Why is it so hard for her to just cut ties considering she herself is a whole mom to 4 young children??


Queencx0

I mean, the fact that her team didn’t foresee backlash from her original statement Is mind blowing. Tracy is failing you, Kim


Terrible_Western_975

I would love to be a fly on the wall when she hit send and they immediately started seeing all of the backlash LOL panic


Queencx0

Based on her attitude lately, she’s likely more pissed at the public for having a problem with this vs the actual issue at hand


AlfredCornelius

Spot on


Queencx0

Doesn’t help that there’s so many yes-men around her that will agree with her and blame the public as well


p0wertothepeople

This is spot on. This goes for most things I believe, I think this is the case with Astroworld too.


DisastrousAge4650

I think they were expecting backlash but were also expecting the stans to come out the woodworks and drown out the people upset over what was essentially a non-statement.


mandmranch

She paid someone named Tracy to write this statement/not much of a statement? So someone else thought about this? Gross.


Queencx0

Tracy’s her publicist so there’s a 99% chance she had input in this statement

luanda16

Because she made Balenciaga her whole personality/identity. When trying to figure out her style “separate” from Kanye, she let Balenciaga dress her like a little doll. She hates the idea of all of that “hard work” going down the drain. She keeps hitching her horse to the wrong things/people and it’s kind of amusing to watch her struggle between her image/integrity and money


RealMadrid2877

Because she craves acceptance from the “fashion community”


imsoappalled222

Yep she trying to hold on to all ties , she can’t afford to lose demna , Kanye is cancelled , Virgil passed away , mugler passed away , Ricardo Tisci went solo no longer with Burberry , Alexander wang pedo , raf Simmons is semi retired and Kim jones washed up 😬


TryJezusNotMe

Don't forget D&G and how they felt about IVF babies. Even after they were vocal about it and knowing Kim's pregnancy journey, she still worked with them. Desperate. Smh.


justsackpat

Superficial and it shows


chicoyeah

I don't think she cares at all about the issue. Re-evaluation = lay low on Balenciaga merch until everyone forgets about it.


lushsweet

Bc money is thicker than blood for Kim lol

ok girl! can’t wait to see you in another balenciaga outfit next week !


justsackpat

And a horrific one at that


fatimag23

She thinks we are stupid lol


Passingtime528

It has worked for them so far.


justsackpat

She stupid too!


PinkTalkingDead

I mean 👀 did you see the poll posted earlier today wherein the majority of this sub believes Kim is the most intelligent person in that family 🤢


StrawberryKiss2559

Okay that’s insane


ocen2

Funny thing is majority of her fans will eat this up


baygold

It’s wild that she didn’t immediately cut ties. Not only is it the morally right thing to do, it would make her look good. People would applaud her. Now she looks weak and morally bankrupt. Sad.


BachShitCrazy

I’m assuming she has a contract so it may not be that simple to cut ties. She’s may be having her lawyers review her options w her rn, we just don’t know. Knowing the kardashians though likely not lol


AlfredCornelius

I know nothing but i’m thinking there HAS to be protections for these brand ambassadors where if the brand does something that is wildly damaging to their public image, they would be able to terminate the contract and separate publicly from the company, I believe that this would be something that qualifies. If there isnt something like that written into their contracts they need new managers


baygold

That’s my assumption as well. I guess we’ll never truly know.


BeautyUnboxingQueen

The fact that she is ‘re-evaluating’ is concerning…I really don’t think this is the type of thing where you give a brand a second chance. The statement also seems so insincere, we all know Kim is sat on her phone panicking right now asking her team what to write! They won’t show this on the Hulu show though of course…


obrittuary

My “reevaluation” would be a quick call to my legal team on how I cancel my contract with them.


BeautyUnboxingQueen

Exactly! The fact that she’s even contemplating working with them again is beyond shocking!


layla_jones_

I think at the moment half of her closet is Balenciaga, she would be lost..but it has been time time for a new aesthetic anyways! This is a sign from the universe Kim.


AdBackground1430

Kim loves money. She is like her mom in the worst way. Balenciaga is also pissing me off with how they are not accepting any responsibility and putting all the blame completely on someone else. Some higher up had to approve this.


fluffy_doughnut

I feel like even though Kris loves herself she is smart enough to recognize when it is time to forget about being Ms Perfect and do whatever she needs to maintain her image and cash flow. While Kim loves herself too much and will never ever admit that she did something wrong and will never miss an opportunity to show everyone how perfect she is.


Throwawaylam49

True. They are the sole people responsible and yet they file a lawsuit and blame everyone but themselves.


RealMadrid2877

The gag is she doesn’t even look good in Balenciaga, all this drama for the privilege to wear trash Demna fits Balmain era>>>>Balenciaga era


heyheywhatchasay5

Their actions they're going to take to protect children? They make clothes. The only action they could take is not photographing kids with bondage bears, which they already did 😂


sweetsugar888

Which is why she’s thinking hmm…maybe I should keep going and keep the $$ lol


blackmoonbluemoon

I predicted 2 days, how long has it been, half an hour? 😂😂😂 This is her handing herself a lifeline . So if people are accepting and if people are dragging her she has the option to go either way.


skon7

This!!!


Nervous_Macaroon6632

If she rlly cared abt child abuse & the protection of our children, she wouldn’t even have to evaluate her relationship with them.


Erinzzz

If she cared about the protection of children she’d keep her own off social media


Terrible_Associate18

that part


jannuz

Literally! I am a nobody and I would be embarrassed to wear Balenciaga now, how can she feel any differently?!!


savagebuns

I do not understand the chokehold this designer has on her that she isn’t willing to just cut ties and move on. It would make her look like a good person and also she would be free from the poots-win/win!


ResponsibleCrew3843

What are poots?


mishkavonpusspuss

You’re new here huh 😉


NoEmotion4496

That this wasn’t in her original statement is very telling.


dahlia6767

She’s jumping on the bandwagon because other celebs are calling out the campaign


Dentistchair

Who has said something? I’ve been behind


Queencx0

All I have to say is the greed this woman has is going to be her down fall. Mark my words. Putting morals over money isn’t a good look honey. ESPECIALLY when we are talking about child abuse. Disgusting


Top-Purpose-8081

I mean, she isn't just a model in a campaign or a show. She is their brand ambassador. She is representing them going forward. And is a billionaire. She doesn't need any money from anyone..I think she's just like "but their clothes look good on me and I want to keep wearing them." That's all that's in her silly head.


CALIXO_94

This must be hard for her because outside of Balenciaga she knows she has zero outfits. Balenciaga was an “easy” fashion choice because most of the outfits already give off this “not your normal outfit” so you don’t really have to try hard. Also, when she asked “what do people want to see in season 3?” This Kim. This! Your reaction to all this mess.


makingburritos

Read: I needed a few days to think of a statement that would let me off the hook so I can still wear Balenciaga and secure the bag. Sorry not sorry. I think it’s sad she has turned into everything that people once said she was. They called her money-hungry, attention-seeking, self-absorbed… now she is all of those things. She is a self-fulfilling prophecy at this point and it’s just gross. Don’t say shit about contractual obligations, she’s got enough money that it really doesn’t matter. This is deplorable.


Weekly_Yesterday_403

She has always been those things…


makingburritos

I don’t personally feel that way, but I can see why people do.


eeniemeaniemineymo

She won’t do anything. This is just a PR move to make people stop


heygurl34

![gif](giphy|wzxK9cmYgIPDy)


noorofmyeye24

Translator: Had to say something because I was getting the misery piled on me. Now, I’m going to wait to see what happens before deciding if I’m going to cut ties.


washie

Translation: I'm testing the waters to see if this will hurt my brand, but I have literally zero actual morals.


LinksMilkBottle

There are so many designer brands out there and even more upcoming young designers who could definitely use the spotlight. Why stick with Balenciaga? Cut the cord. ✂️


Eastern-Court471

This woman fr thinks child porn is negotiable


GreenDog48

As a mother of four!


PinkTalkingDead

Genuine question- why does her being a mom of 4 matter? I keep seeing comments pointing it out. We all recognize children’s safety is of the utmost importance.


OowlSun

It's just that you expect someone who has children to care about the physical and mental welfare of children.


PinkTalkingDead

It sounds a lot like when people appeal to men’s senses regarding violence against women saying “what if she was your mother/daughter/sister” Like it’s chalking up to caring about others based on a personal relationship to that demographic. I know I’m being a bit nit picky but imo we shouldn’t need to personalize injustices


OowlSun

It's weird but that's how it is in the real world. I've had past friends tell me they don't care about children because they don't have kids or don't plan on having kids. It's like people who don't care about the lgbt+ community until their children, grandchildren, or siblings come out. Edit: but you'd be surprised by the number of people who just don't care about children so when someone does have children, you just expect that they do.


smy_su

But there are also parents who don't care about children. Every human being who have healty mind have problem with cp, regardless if you have children or not.

Elegant-Condition-98

She will have them donate some money. They will do some community service work and people will buy it and forget about it.


Hahafuckreddit

The fact that only public pressure made her add this on... Pretty gross. I criticize them a lot for dumb shit but generally I don't find any of the sisters to be bad people. But this is seriously disturbing and evil. She clearly wants to continue working with them.


nicole1859

The brand should be getting just as much hate as Kanye


Different_Prior_517

This is just embarrassing. Kim acting like this is the first morally corrupt thing a company she’s worked for has done is annoying. I don’t think there’s a company she or her family has worked with that is safe and above board.


imsoappalled222

She digging herself deeper 😬


Jolly_Discipline6650

Translation: I don’t want to spend the whole of season 3 explaining why I decided to stay with the brand


PinkTalkingDead

Bold of you to assume she’d ever address this on the show


GreenDog48

Only reason she put this out was because of the backlash. We can’t even blame this on Tracy at this point, obviously she’s got to go but this is on Kim.


memecatcher247

She’s a fucking coward. I’m sure grooming and pedophilia are sufficient reasons to break your contract, Kim.


theoffgrid

Is she losing ACTUAL followers? I tried looking it up, but couldn't figure it out.


skon7

Kim??


MotlehCrue

By re-evaluating she means renegotiating a high pay cut to put up with their BS.


MyCinWonderland

Kim also says she didn’t have plastic surgery. I don’t believe anything that comes out of that mouth


sav33arthkillyos3lf

Lol she had north in a gimp mask. Your words mean nothing

She did??!!!

Syd_of_Pentacles

LOL she was so gauging the public’s reaction. So fucking disingenuous. I hope she keeps getting called out for how obvious it is that she doesn’t actually want to cut ties with them.


ComplexDessert

loz, wasn’t she wearing balenciaga the other day?


Noelle9753

Tell me you got backlash from your half ass statement without telling me you got backlash from your half ass statement …

What if she uses this as an excuse to get out of her contract with them?


simguruisa

Kim how are you protecting your children from the public eye?


pain1994

She should have reevaluated when they handed her poots.


Puzzleheaded_Echo693

if youre a mother of 4 what exactly is there to reevaluate 💀


coffeealways_

Any statement made via stories are all PR. Would mean more if she made it a post that doesn’t disappear in 24 hours. But it sounds like she doesn’t want to cut the relationship anytime soon

staceyann1573

Someone bought 20% of KKW I saw and the same person owns part of Balenciaga somehow. I didn’t save the information. It’s worth a deep dive though. She will never stop supporting Balenciaga.

nievedelimon

Kim knows no other luxury brand would want to do business with her anytime soon.


abhipsiren

I think it's brave that kim is staying with balencigaga even when they dogged her and embarrassed the shit out of her. Like, I'm not in her shoes but seeing everything that's happened at balencicuckoo, it's so easy and quick to be like, "oh my god, leave them, leave them", when it's so much harder to stay and have the whole public think that you're an idiot for staying like, to have the strength to really not give a fuck. edit: this is exactly what kim and Kourtney said to Khloe regarding staying with Tristan (on the Hulu show and in an interview with Andy Cohen). No one recalls these words that Kim said during her confessionals where she sounded like she was trynna clown Khloe? Y'all don't have a KJ obsession unhealthy enough to remember the most random shit spewed from their mouth and it shows. Links: [lowkey sounds like she was mocking cloe by reiterating and low-key agreeing with public opinion (Twitter video link)](https://twitter.com/kordeilogy/status/1537327222347902982?t=4yA75cDAW0WqUb1H3_ghUw&s=19) [Andy Cohen interview (YouTube link, skip to 1:23 mark)](https://youtu.be/AKEj3oQN4EE)


United-Independent20

no


abhipsiren

I was copy pasting basically what Kim said to Khloe regarding Khloe sticking with Trashcan even after Tristan's humiliated her publicly multiple. She sounded condescending, shady towards Khloe, like she was agreeing with the public opinion of Khloe being a klown for still being associated with Tristan. Receipts attached as edits in the parent comment.


justsackpat

Good. That brand are nothing but publicity chasers at this mo and Kim should distance. Balenciaga are disgusting right now eurgh

G1itterTrash

Just drop them Kimberly!!! 🙄 No amount of money is worth supporting or over looking what happened. She has the power to speak up and call out this brand.


anothergirl22

Is someone going to sue Balenciaga? It’s ridiculous that they’re suing when they obviously gave the campaign the go ahead. The brand, along with anyone still associating with them, should be sued into oblivion. I’m sick of them anywhere. They suck on all levels.


skon7

Balenciaga is suing who?


anothergirl22

They’re suing the advertising company that came up with campaign for 25 mil.


skon7

Yeah it’s not balneicagas fault Imo if it was Another ad company and a small division of their company that accidentally approved it. Art is very wildly vague and most people upon first brush may not have understood what the images represented


anothergirl22

It’s a big campaign so a big division would have approved it. It was also styled by Balenciaga’s head stylist.


lotsofsippycups

She should’ve led with this 🤦🏻‍♀️


skon7

I have felt for a while now that Kim is morally bankrupt and that people should not support her or at the least press her about many of the things she does. Not just this but other controversies in the past. I assume if she does stay or even if she doesn’t, they will avoid accountability by creating a fake relationship or other family drama to distract from the controversy like they did with astroworld. But the more people who hold her accountable the more people might see her for who she is. Kanye’s empire crumbled, hers could too. The media has really brought to light a lot of the dark lately


No_Ad3198
