Elton John boycotts Dolce & Gabbana
Elton John’s campaign to boycott Dolce & Gabbana is gathering steam.
The 67-year-old music legend says he is boycotting the fashion house after Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said they disagree with in-vitro fertilization.
Italian magazine Panorama quoted the pair as saying, “No chemical children: life has a natural course, there are things that shouldn’t be modified.”
They also spoke on “the importance of relationships within conventional families with very, very traditional values” which has struck many as ironic and hypocritical considering the couple was romantically involved until 2005 (they continue working together however).
John is particulary upset with the pair’s reference to “synthetic” children born from “rented” wombs.
Sir Elton, who has two children with his husband, David Furnish, through IVF shared his anger on Instagram yesterday.
“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 fulfill 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.”
