UK-based TikToker Chloé Hennessy has filmed herself destroying more than AU$4,000 of Balenciaga clothes following the brand’s controversial campaign.
In the video, Hennessy can be seen taking a Balenciaga hoody, t-shirt, a pair of shoes, and her recently purchased sunglasses from her wardrobe and cutting up the hoody with a pair of scissors.
@chloehenny I honestly feel sick to my stomach but can’t say that I’m surprised tbh! 😰 #boycottbalenciaga #balenciaga #balenciagaphotoshoot #balenciagagate #viral ♬ Spooky, quiet, scary atmosphere piano songs – Skittlegirl Sound
In the video, Hennessy wrote:
“STOP WEARING BALENCIAGA IMMEDIATELY!!”
“We all know the 🌎 is run by P3DO EL1TES but they have taken it WAYYYY too far!
“THEY ARE SO BLATANTLY RUBBING P3DOCRACY IN OUR FACES 😰🤮😡”
It is unclear exactly how far Hennessy would have allowed the “P3DO EL1TES” to take the “P3DOCRACY” before taking action.
In a subsequent video, Hennessy filmed herself in a Balenciaga store, repeatedly asking the store assistants on shift at the time whether they supported child paedophilia.
“If you don’t support child paedophilia, I wouldn’t buy from this brand,” she added.
“You shouldn’t be standing here, working here, knowing that you’re supporting child paedophilia.”
@chloehenny “We’re sorry about that” 🙄🤮 also the male worker smiling at the end of this video literally just told me that he doesn’t care about children being exploited by p3docracy 🙂 DO NOT SUPPORT THIS BRAND! #boycottbalenciaga #balenciaga #balenciagagate #cancelbalenciaga #fyp @Chloé Hennessey ♬ original sound – Chloé Hennessey
Other TikTok users were quick to point out that, contrary to Hennessy’s assertions, the staff working in the shops were not responsible for the campaigns.
“Workers are there just trying to feed their family lol😂,” replied one user.
Another said, “the workers have nothing to do with what balenciaga supports and what not.”
The recent spate of videos represent quite a turnaround for Hennessy. Just four days ago, the business woman, who runs said she runs CHLOÉ’S LONDON, apparently the number one business in the UK for “butt/hip fillers,” posted a video showing off her new Balenciaga sunglasses. B&T first reported on Balenciaga pulling the creepy campaigns on 24 November.
When Hennessy first posted the video, she said that she was unaware of the drama as she was “living in the real world as a full time mum 😅,” and “not sitting around on the internet all day.”
However, Hennessy has certainly been more vocal about Balenciaga that the Kardashian family who have a longstanding association with the brand.
