Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce already made enemies by giving their comments on medically-aided conception method. It appears that they didn’t take a lesson and now they attacked Elton John for criticizing their statement.
In a interview talking to Italy’s Corriere della Sera, Gabbana said, “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.” Dolce completed by saying, “You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that’s how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalog.”
About Elton’s criticism, Gabbana declared, “I didn’t expect this. I didn’t expect this, coming from someone whom I considered, and I stress ‘considered,’ an intelligent person like Elton John. I mean, you preach understanding, tolerance and then you attack others? Only because someone has a different opinion? Is this a democratic or enlightened way of thinking? This is ignorance, because he ignores the fact that others might have a different opinion and that theirs is as worthy of respect as his. It’s an authoritarian way of seeing the world: agree with me or, if you don’t, I’ll attack you. I even posted the word ‘Fascist!’ on his Instagram.”
