Many fans are angry with “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley for not speaking publicly about Balenciaga.
Known for her designer clothing and accessories, Kemsley is easily one of the franchise’s trendiest stars. For this reason, among others, fans feel that Kemsley should have released some kind of statement after the controversial Balenciaga ad in which children “hold teddy bears in bondage harnesses.” according to The Cut.
After receiving negative feedback, Balenciaga removed the ad campaign and issued a public apology. The company has also taken additional measures outlined in a post on Instagram.
Several “Real Housewives” fans have questioned why Kemsley hasn’t spoken out about the campaign, and many have left comments on her social media posts asking her why she’s been silent when it comes to the ad – or the company – to denounce.
Here’s what you need to know:
Fans have asked Kemsley why she isn’t speaking up
On several of Kemsley’s recent social media posts, fans have asked her in the comments sections why she chose not to speak up about Balenciaga’s ad. The reality star, who is a mother of two young children, has not released any statement about the brand, nor has she revealed whether or not she plans to continue supporting the company.
This has bothered many fans who have grilled her on social media.
“Why didn’t you comment on Balenciaga???? Crimes against children! I hope yours [sic] will you no longer support them?” asked a social media user.
“You are obsessed with brands, never heard you say anything about Balenciaga?” questioned someone else.
“Your silence on Balenciaga speaks volumes” read a third comment.
“Why don’t you speak out against the pedophiles in Baalenciaga?!! What’s the matter with you people?! Do you support pedophilia?!!!! [sic]” repeated another Instagram user.
Kemsley hasn’t deleted all photos of her with Balenciaga on Instagram
Aside from deciding not to comment on the controversy, Kemsley has also decided to leave some social media photos of her with the brand.
“A Balenciaga moment to cap off an epic weekend” reads the title of a post she announced on October 17, 2022. In the snap, Kemsley wears a silver Balenciaga mini dress with matching hybrid leggings.
Although Kemsley’s decision to wear the outfit came well before the controversial Balenciaga ad, the look didn’t receive the best reviews at the time. Several people participated in a Reddit thread to discuss Kemsley’s Balenciaga attire, and many felt she missed the point.
Kemsley has been compared to an alien and the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. Still, she seemed to love the look enough to share a few pics of it on Instagram.
Kemsley is a big fan of Chanel, Versace, Roberto Cavalli and yes, even Balenciaga. She often tags the brands she wears on social media.
