Madonna Slams Dolce & Gabbana: 'Think Before You Speak'

Madonna is the latest celebrity to slam fashion designers and openly gay couple Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana for the controversial comments they made about IVF and gay adoption.

The 56-year-old entertainer has worn outfits designed by the men on many occasions (including in the photo used here) and has even modeled in their campaigns. Her MDNA concert film premiere was also sponsored by the fashion brand back in 2013.

“All babies contain a soul however they come to this earth and their families,” Madonna wrote on Instagram. “There is nothing synthetic about a soul!! So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy? Every soul comes to us to teach us a lesson. God has his hand in everything even technology! We are arrogant to think Man does anything on his own. As above so below! Think before you speak… ❤️#livingforlove.”

Stefano has fired back at the controversy not once, but two times already.

Dolce & Gabbana Explain Their Controversial Comments About 'Synthetic Children'

Fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have given an interview to explain their controversial comments about IVF and “synthetic children.”

“I believe in the traditional family,” Dolce told CNN. “It is impossible to change my culture for something different. It’s me… I respect all the world, all the culture.”

Stefano wanted to make clear that he wasn’t preaching how to live life. “We love gay couple. We are gay. We love gay couple. We love gay adoption. We love everything. It’s just an express of my private point of view,” he said.

“I love the music of Elton John,” Dolce said about wanting to end the controversy. “Every people resolve everything by talk… we start to talk, the problem is resolved. Every people [has] freedom for choosing what they want. This for me is democracy. I respect you because you choose what you want. I respect me because I choose what I want… This just my point of private view.”

“Boycott Dolce & Gabbana for what? They don’t think like you? This is correct? This is not correct. We are in 2015. This is like medieval. It’s not correct,” Stefano added.

Elton John and lots of other celebrities have spoken out against the fashion duo after their controversial comments.

Stefano Gabbana Fires Back at Elton John: ‘He’s Ignorant’

Fashion designer Stefano Gabbana is firing back at Elton John after the singer called for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana after hearing the pair’s comments on IVF.

“I wasn’t expecting it. I wasn’t expecting it from someone like Elton John I used to think – and I stress ‘used to’ – was intelligent,” Stefano told Italian newspaper Corrier Della Sera. “What’s going on? You preach understanding. You preach tolerance. And then you put the knife in? All because someone else doesn’t see things your way? Is that supposed to be a democratic way of thinking? Enlightened? He’s ignorant, in the sense that he denies ways of seeing things that may not be his but are just as deserving of respect”.

The openly-gay couple and fashion designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, originally said that people “are born to a mother and a father. Or at least that’s how it should be.” They also referred to children of chemistry as “synthetic children.”

Elton John Slams Dolce & Gabbana For 'Synthetic Children' Comments, Other Celebs Also React

Elton John took to Instagram last night (March 14) to slam Dolce&Gabbana for comments about “synthetic children.”

“You are born to a mother and a father. Or at least that’s how it should be,” the designer duo told Panorama in the interview published last week. “I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented wombs, semen chosen from a catalog.”

“I’m gay, I cannot have a child,” Dolce told the publication. “Life has its natural course, there are things that must not be changed. And one of these is the family.”

“We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one,” Gabbana added.

“How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic,’” Elton wrote on his Instagram account of his children with husband David Furnish. “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 fulfil 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. #BoycottDolceGabbana”
