After receiving backlash, Balenciaga pulled the campaign, which photographer Gabriele Galimberti titled “Toy Stories,” and released a statement apologizing for the “unsettling documents” displayed in the photos.
“We strongly condemn child abuse; it was never our intent to include it in our narrative. The two separate ad campaigns in question reflect a series of grievous errors for which Balenciaga takes responsibility,” the fashion company said.
Feucht then questioned why there has been no moral outcry from Hollywood, big banks, mainstream media, celebrities, and social justice warriors.
“I honestly think it’s crazy that you have these apparent social justice warriors inside of the church and outside of the church not really saying anything about the Balenciaga situation,” Feucht told ChurchLeaders. “I mean, this is like bold faced exploitation of children, like in our face, like out in the open—the brazen assault, and the mindset that they know nothing’s going to happen to them.”
Questioning where all the big banks that have attempted to cancel conservatives are, Feucht added, “Where’s Hollywood’s response, where’s the mainstream media’s response, where’s the celebrity response, and then sadly worse the church response!”
“It’s wild to me,” Feucht shared, expressing that it’s “revealing to me in America where we’re at this place where they’re trying their hardest to normalize this disgusting, demonic, vile act of pedophilia. And, really, it’s another example of the satanic and demonic attack on our children…their response is basically…like no remorse. They blame the marketing company.”
“Now it’s time for us to rise up! Call it out! Protect our kids,” said the worship leader, who embarks on his “Kingdom to the Capitol” tour in 2023. “We are in the vibe of Jesus’ words he spoke that are recorded in Matthew 18, where he says, ‘Whoever causes one of these little ones who believes in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.’”
