Dolce & Gabbana Apologize For Anti-Gay Adoption Comments

Fashion moguls Dolce & Gabbana, who in recent months referred to in vitro fertilization babies “chemical offspring” from a “rented uterus,” have issued an apology for their anti-gay adoption and IVF statements they gave earlier this year.

From Vogue:

“I’ve done some soul-searching. I’ve talked to Stefano a lot about this. I’ve realized that my words were inappropriate, and I apologize. They are just kids. You don’t need labels, baby labels.” And as far as IVF goes, he says he’s changed his tune. “I think everybody chooses for themselves. I don’t know everything about IVF, but I love it when people are happy. It’s like medicine. Science has been put on the table to help people.”

Elton John Calls For Boycott Of Dolce & Gabbana Over Anti-Same-Sex Family Comments

Elton John has called for a boycott of fashion brand Dolce and Gabbana after he said the designers labelled children born through IVF “synthetic”.

The singer and songwriter, 67, who has two children with his husband, David Furnish, angrily rebuked the Italian designers for criticising same-sex families and the use of fertility treatment.

Business partners Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who were once a couple, have previously voiced their rejection of same-sex marriage, but in an interview with an Italian magazine this weekend they extended their objection to include same-sex families.
