In a recent interview with Panorama magazine, designers Dolce and Gabbana threw around harsh criticism about IVF (in vitro fertilization). “I call children of chemistry, synthetic children,” said Domenic Dolce. Elton John, who has two sons born via surrogate, took to Instagram to respond, saying, “I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again.” Now other celebrities are slamming the designers with the hashtag #BoycottDolceGabbana.
How dare you refer to my beautiful children as "synthetic". And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF – a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana
Here’s who’s spoken out so far.
