Self-loathing Tacky Designer Stefano Gabbana of D&G: “Don’t call me gay!”

 

A virtual  super-majority of high-profile fashion designers, including Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs and Sophie Theallet, have publicly refused to dress the incoming first “lady” Melania Trump. In contrast, Stefano Gabbana happily posted a photo of Trump wearing one of their dresses on New Years Eve dress, which retails for an obscene $2,995 at Saks Fifth Avenue, to his Instagram account, with the hashtags #DGwoman and #madeinitaly. 

When being called out on Twitter for the fact that the gay D&G team took pride in the fact that the Trump wife wore one of their creations Gabbana fired back at the user, “Dont call me gay please!! I’m a man!!! Who I love its my private life”.

This isn’t the first time that D&G has shown its slef-loathing homophobic side. In 2015, he and his design partner, Domenico Dolce, faced a backlash after claiming that children of same-sex parents were “children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteruses for rent, semen chosen from a catalog” in an interview with Italy’s Panorama magazine

Dolce went even further, adding, “I am gay, I cannot have a child. I guess you cannot have everything in life. Life has a natural course, some things cannot be changed. One is the family.”

Here is a hastag for Dolce & Gabbana

  1. No problem not sharing “gay” with you, Stefano — especially as something like “quisling queer” is more accurate. #BoycottDolceGabbana
