After her estranged hubby Kanye "Ye" West publicly slammed the fashion company's recent campaign, Kimmy Cakes has followed suit in condemning the photoshoot.

The calamity began when fans accused the high-profile brand of sexualizing children in their holiday ad, which appeared to show kids holding teddy bears dressed in bondage attire.

On Sunday, The SKIMS owner, who is a Balenciaga ambassador and has regularly collaborated with the company, took to Twitter to explain that she is "re-evaluating" her relationship with the brand.

"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," she tweeted.

"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 normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society - period."

Following the backlash Balenciaga received over its controversial photoshoot, the fashion company promptly removed all images from its social media platforms.

The reality star continued that while she "appreciated" Balenciaga's swift removal of the campaign, she's currently re-thinking her partnership with the brand.

"As for my future with Balenciaga, I am currently re-evaluating my relationship with the brand, basing it off their willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to begin with - & the actions I am expecting to see them take to protect children," the 41-year-old wrote.

Following intense scrutiny over the inappropriate ad, the luxury label issued an apology and removed all images from all of its social media platforms.

"We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused," the company's statement said, per CNN.

"Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms."
