Who would have thought that the friendship of Elton John with the designer duo Dolce & Gabbana will end so suddenly. The reason for discontent of the British singer and composer was the interview of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for the Italian magazine Panorama, namely – their criticism on same-sex families and artificial fertilization (IVF).
We would like to remind you that since December 2005, Elton John is married with David Furnish. After the 2004 same-sex marriages approval in the United Kingdom, the musician and his companion were one of the first to legalize their relationship. Today the pair has two sons from a surrogate mother, that is why it is not surprising that Elton John was so affected by the words said by Domenico and Stefano.
“We are against gay adoptions and recognize only the traditional family,” – said designers. In response, John placed them in a photo in his Instagram account, accompanied by the comment: “Your archaic thinking is as old-fashioned as the fashion you are doing. I’ll never wear Dolce & Gabbana”. Aside with this comment, he created a special hashtag #boycottDolceGabbana, which was supported by more than thousands of people.
