Balenciaga London store vandalised after controversial campaign

A sticker that says “‘paedophile” has been stuck on the window of a central London Balenciaga store. It comes in the wake of the fashion house facing backlash over a controversial teddy bear campaign which involved children and bondage-inspired accessories. This video shows the moment the sticker was placed on the Bond Street store by a person wearing a neon yellow vest and a bobble hat. Balenciaga has apologised for both ads and removed them from their social media.
