Kim Kardashian Breaks Silence on Balenciaga's BDSM Child Photo Shoot
BREAKS SILENCE ON BALENCIAGA SCANDAL

Kim Kardashian has broken her silence on the Balenciaga scandal – in which they featured children posting with BDSM-themed accessories.
The A-lister who's been tied to the fashion house for years now issued a statement Sunday in response to the ongoing backlash against both Balenciaga themselves, but also over the fact that she's remained silent thus far … with fans calling on her to speak out.
Kim says, "I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been shocked 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 adds, "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."
Kim ends by saying, "I appreciate Balenciaga’s removal of the campaigns and apology. In speaking with them, I believe they understand the seriousness of the issue and will take the necessary measures for this to never happen again."
Now, she doesn't say what exactly Balenciaga told her to explain this way – publicly, they've basically pleaded ignorance and blamed everything on the set designer and production co. heading the campaign … going so far as to sue both parties for $25 million this weekend.
Folks were furious that little girls would be made to pose in suggestive positions, alongside teddy bears rocking dominatrix-inspired leather outfits and other BDSM toys. Not just that, but court docs referencing a famous child porn case were snuck into the background too.
The photographer who shot it said he had no control over the set pieces and was simply following orders – and while Balenciaga has claimed to have had no knowledge of the items being staged the way they were, many have called BS … especially since this went live.
Despite a ton of outrage from normies causing the ad to get yanked most high-profile celebrities have stayed tight-lipped on it all, including ones who have close relationships with Balenciaga … with Kim being at the top of that list. Bella Hadid was also under fire.
Many thought this would cause stars to cut ties with Balenciaga en masse, but it doesn't sound like Kim's doing that.

5 things to know about CRISPR and gene editing in the COVID era
Aug 12, 2020
CRISPR is the search engine for biology.
The advent of CRISPR-based diagnostics fundamentally means a better understanding of the molecular world around us – for areas ranging from human disease to crop health.
Infectious disease is a key use-case area for the diagnostic applications of CRISPR. It’s become clear that one of its most powerful uses is its ability to provide reliable molecular information quickly and in a variety of formats.
International borders, workplaces, homes and maybe even concerts, conferences or other large events could benefit greatly from having tests for COVID-19 (and other diseases) that give gold-standard results within minutes. During a pandemic, this type of information is critical for fully reopening economies and engaging in robust contact tracing.
“We created a robust test for the novel coronavirus within weeks – particularly important as we contemplate the fact that it is a matter of when, not if, we must combat future pandemics beyond the current one,” says Trevor Martin.
Beyond these more immediate uses, there is exciting potential for testing our environment more broadly, through monitoring samples from sewage or air. These measurements could give us unprecedented insight into our ecosystems and how they influence our health.
