Dolce & Gabbana (D&G) is a luxury Italian fashion house founded in 1985 in Legnano by Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. They have supported Melania Trump wearing their designs and fashion and for that face a boycott backlash.
In January of this year, Stefano Gabbana very publicly threw his support behind Melania Trump while taking on some internet trolls. Gabbana’s response to those who threatened to boycott their D&G brand? ‘I don’t care,’ replied Gabbana.
The two have also upset the tolerant libtards in the past by stating in 2015 (from Wikipedia), “We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one.” They also criticized in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and surrogacy by saying, “No chemical offspring and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.” Since the comments were made by two gay men in an industry often seen as gay-friendly, reactions were especially harsh.
I love these guys for standing up to the NOH8 brigade. Yet I won’t be buying this $245 t-shirt as it is overpriced out of my budget.
From Hollywood Reporter: Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana is thumbing its nose at critics with a new campaign and apparel urging a boycott of the company.
The company is selling T-shirts for $245 a piece that read #BOYCOTT DOLCE & GABBANA. The shirts are listed on Dolce and Gabbana’s website alongside a short film of Italian protesters wearing the shirts during a demonstration against the company.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are among the protesters.
The shirts follow Instagram posts from co-founder Stefano Gabbana last month highlighting first lady Melania Trump’s Dolce & Gabbana outfits during her recent overseas trip with President Donald Trump. In one of his posts, Gabbana called out “haters” and urged them to boycott the brand.
Dolce & Gabbana didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
