New York Times capes for pedos, claims YOU'RE the conspiracy theorist for thinking Balenciaga ad was gross
Balenciaga felt that little girls interacting with fetish gear were a great way to sell expensive couture. You may have been disgusted by it due to your having morals and a sense of decency. Turns out, according to the New York Times, you are only offended because you watch too much Fox News, hunt for people in pizza places, and are too much a rube to understand "art."
To recap, Balenciaga released photos featuring children holding provocative Teddy Bear bags while BDSM and alcohol props lined the bed. They also released a second ad, where scattered on a cluttered desk there was a copy of United States v. Williams. It's a Supreme Court case about distributing child pornography.
the brand "Balenciaga" just did a uh..... interesting... photoshoot for their new products recently which included a very purposely poorly hidden court document about 'virtual child porn'

Gross, right? Only if you believe in QAnon according to the New York Times.
How the Balenciaga controversy has become one of the most explicit collisions of internet culture, politics, fashion and conspiracy theories to date. With @VVFriedman and @jtes https://t.co/WoczAWlzLj

Feel free to click through if you want to give it traffic. But it can be summed up with the following lede:
Two new Balenciaga campaigns ignited a firestorm that traveled from the internet to Fox News, fueled by allegations that the brand condoned child exploitation.
It wasn't the photos exploiting children that fueled allegations the brand condoned exploiting children. It was Fox News. So sayeth the New York Times, to explain to the rubes what high art and fashion is. The copy of United States v. Williams was an unfortunate coincidence.
Or, it shows that at least one person working at the ad agency had a modicum of a conscience, and added it to the clutter knowing Balenciaga would miss it. They didn't miss the little girls holding bondage bears, though. They were all about those.
And the New York Times has their back, defending them against critics. It's not the photos that are the problem. It's YOU finding the photos promlemtic that's the problem.
To the New York Times, thinking child exploration, sexualizing children, and/or pedophilia are all bad things makes you no better than people who believe in QAnon. And they wonder why so many Americans view the media as the enemy of the people.
