Elton John Urges Boycott of Dolce & Gabbana Products

Pop star Elton John announced this previous weekend that he would boycott the posh fashion designs of Dolce & Gabbana. The singer, most known for his flamboyant fashion sense, asked for fans’ support after the fashion designers declared their opposition for things “non-traditional.”

The founders of Dolce & Gabbana announced their displeasure with gay adoptions and that they support only the marital unions made between one man and one woman. What may shock people the most is that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were once involved in a romantic relationship with each other.

Dolce & Gabbana fashions are popular among the Hollywood elite, including actress Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson. Sir Elton John was known to wear D&G designs. John is openly gay and recently married his partner of many years, David Furnish. Together with Furnish, the couple parented two children who were both conceived through a surrogate mother.

TheRealDeal.com said in the further exchange of spitfire, the Dolce & Gabbana founders told the magazine, during the shocking interview, that children born into non-traditional families aren’t real, but are instead “children of chemistry.”

An angry Sir Elton John vowed to never wear the company’s fashions again and called for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana fashions. Fans and supporters nationwide jumped on the boycott bandwagon. The pop star has seen support from other celebrities as well, including Hole front-woman Courtney Love.
