Want to know the best way to destroy your own brand? Be arseholes.
And it really doesn't matter what sort of brand you want to destroy, being an arsehole and alienating one of the worlds most influential people as well as millions and millions of people around the world is probably the quickest way to do it.
TK Maxx are probably creating the D & G signs for their stores as we speak because pretty soon that is probably where their stock is going to end up being sold, and you know what?
It is what they deserve.
What have Dolce & Gabbana done to deserve such hate? Speaking to the Italian magazine Panorama alongside Stefano Gabbana, Domenico Gabbana said children should be born to a mother and a father. “I’m not convinced by those I call the children of chemicals, synthetic children,” he added. “Wombs for rent, sperm chosen from a catalogue ... psychiatrists are not ready to confront the effects of this experimentation,” and 'the only family is a traditional one."
Er, hold up mister. but IVF has helped millions of families create miracles. Much wanted, much loved children, and I do not CARE about the sexuality, gender, or number of parents a baby has. A child born to love is a very, very lucky child indeed.
Sir Elton John is quite rightly, FUMING.
My views on IVF are that it is AMAZING. To reduce a much wanted child to the term "synthetic baby" is repulsive, archaic and downright disgusting. D&G should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.
I know many, many families that are created with the help of IVF, and I'm sure you do too.
D&G in the past, have repeatedly said that, in their opinion a family should have a mother and a father. In 2015, things are not quite so simple and this is a GOOD THING. A "family" is made up of people who love each other, and I am sad that D&G do not understand that. They have released a further statement saying that it is their own personal opinion.
Sorry really does seem to be the hardest word, doesn't it?
But I want to hear YOUR thoughts. Have you been helped by IVF in the past? What are your thoughts on D&G's opinions? Do you agree with Elton John and his call to boycott D&G or do you also believe that a family should be a traditional one?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
