Selena Gomez’s fans are upset with her.

The 30-year-old singer recently took to her Instagram space and shared a slew of pictures in which she can be seen enjoying some ice cream with a friend. In the photos, Selena can be seen donning a grey Balenciaga sweatshirt along with a pair of blue denim shorts. Her hair was styled in a high ponytail. She wrapped up the look with a pair of golden hoop earrings and a pair of sneakers. Sharing the photos, she captioned the post, “Ice cream chillin (ice cream emoji)”.

As soon as she shared the post, fans and followers noticed Selena’s sweatshirt and called her out for supporting the controversial brand. For the unversed, the luxury brand came under fire last November for its Spring/Summer 2023 collection that showed two kids posing with teddy bears wearing B**M-style bond*ge gear. The ad campaign also reportedly featured court documents from a child sexual abuse case.

Yet another person commented, “You who were the youngest UNICEF ambassador and who defend children so much, you should not wear BALENCIAGA (crying emoji)”. Another person commented, “I thought you were a good person but you are malicious (thumbs down emoji), do you know that this brand supports pedophilia, soooo diasappointed in you (sad emoji)”.

Still others defended the Rare singer and pointed out that the pictures in question are not recent but quite a few years old. One fan said, “To everyone extremely concerned about the sweater only if you would be wise enough and have a small amount of brain to understand this is a old photo which is extremely obvious. Use the little brain before just vomiting stuff in the comments like psychopaths.” A second fan said that simply wearing a brand’s sweatshirt does not mean Selena is promoting it. “I dont know why people think she’s promoting it. Are you saying I can’t wear gucci without promoting it? Its old+ let her wear what she wants to wear what balinciaga (i spelled that wrong) was horrible but they made ammends but wearing a brands clothing doesn’t mean you promote it.”
