The Kardashians star released a statement in response to the company's recent Christmas commercial, which featured youngsters and incited internet criticism.

In a recent statement, the creator of SKIMS explained why she took so long to respond.

Sharing a statement on Twitter, Kim wrote, "I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been disgusted and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened." 

Kardashian further noted, "As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images. The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and any attempts to normalise child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period." 

Kardashian went on to say how much she appreciates the company for immediately pulling the campaign and apologising for the incident.
