Elton John says he’s done with Dolce & Gabbana.
On Saturday night the music legend called for a boycott of the luxury fashion house after its founders, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, said they opposed same-sex marriage and gay adoptions in an interview with an Italian magazine.
“You are born to a mother and a father. Or at least that’s how it should be,” the pair told Panorama in the interview published last week. “I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented wombs, semen chosen from a catalog.”
The comments didn’t sit well with John who is married longtime partner David Furnish. The couple has two sons through a surrogate.
“How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic,'” John wrote in a lengthy statement posted on his Instagram page. “And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF – a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children.”
John continued, “Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana.”
