Dolce & Gabbana is making headlines for all the wrong reasons again. Designer Stefano Gabbana commented underneath Catwalk Italia’s Instagram post of Selena Gomez,
“è proprio brutta” Translation? “she’s so ugly.”
Then he went on to like a comment stating that the singer
“looks like a Pomeranian dog”
“hahahahahaha is true hahahaha.”
13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman wrote back,
“You’re tired and over. Your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018. It is no longer tolerable or chic. Please take many seats.”
(Gomez is an execu producer of 13 Reasons Why)
Miley Cyrus went in too,
“Well what that dick head said (if it’s true) is fucking false and total bull shit.
She’s fine as fuck.”
But Gabbana seems to be relishing the rage because his Instagram posts have screen-grabs of the negative coverage. In one he writes,
“MY NAME IS SELENA
You know this isn’t the first time that the gay designer has caused a ruckus. In 2015 he spoke out against gay adoption and IVF and called children born this way, “synthetic” and “chemical offspring.”
“We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus. Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”
Months later, they apologised in Vogue.
“I’ve talked to Stefano a lot about this. I’ve realised that my words were inappropriate, and I apologise. They are just kids. You don’t need labels, baby labels.”
Let’s ask some of the women (& men) who wore Dolce & Gabbana to the recent Met Ball how they feel about this misogynist outburst. Oh, and btw, they also have proudly dressed Melania as first lady.
