Victoria Beckham has joined the celebrity backlash against Dolce & Gabbana, after the fashion designers said gay adoption was unnatural and called those born via IVF “synthetic children”.
Beckham spoke out on Twitter in support of Elton John, who was called a “fascist” by the designers, after he called for a boycott of their brand in the immediate aftermath of their comments.
Singer Courtney Love said she had gathered up all her Dolce & Gabbana items and wanted to burn them. “I’m just beyond words and emotions,” she said, before asking her followers to “boycott senseless bigotry”.
Screenwriter Ryan Murphy, of Nip/Tuck, Glee and American Horror Story fame, said: “These designers’ horrifying views are never in fashion. Their clothes are as ugly as their hate.”
