Sir Elton John went on Instagram to call for a ban on Dolce & Gabbana after the designers said in an interview with Italian magazine Panorama that they oppose gay adoption and in vitro fertilization. "You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that's how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalog," Domenico Dolce was quoted as saying.
And said Stefano Gabbana, "The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging."
(It's worth noting here that Dolce and Gabbana were romantically involved for more than 20 years so the sentiments wouldn't appear to be arising from homophobia.)
So far John has won support from celebrities including Ricky Martin, Courtney Love (who threatened to burn all her D&G pieces) and Al Roker. [Washington Post]
