Brittany Aldean posted a photo of herself throwing away her Balenciaga bags and other items on Wednesday after the brand sparked backlash following a controversial ad campaign.

Balenciaga’s now-discontinued holiday campaign featured images of children holding teddy bears in sexually suggestive costumes.

“It’s garbage day,” Aldean, a mother of two, captioned the photo.

Balenciaga wrote an apology on their Instagram Stories last week, then deleted all images from their account.

“We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms,” ​​said writes the mark.

They also apologized for “exhibiting disturbing material” in their campaign, adding that they “take this matter very seriously and are taking legal action against the parties responsible for creating the set and the inclusion of unapproved assets for our 23” spring campaign photo shoot.

Aldean, who is married to country star Jason Aldean, has been outspoken in the past about kids, especially when it comes to kids wanting to transition to another gender.

“I think kids shouldn’t be allowed to make these life-altering decisions at such a young age,” she told Tucker Carlson in September. “They’re not mature enough; they should have parents who love them and stand up for them regardless. We have ages for everything. We have ages for cigarettes, driving, the military, voting…but for any reason people think we can let a child choose their gender so young? It’s very confusing to me.”

Aldean’s comments came after she received backlash for thanking her family for not changing her gender during her “tomboy phase”.
