Stefano Gabbana insults Selena Gomez, fans are furious
Designer Stefano Gabbana ignited a social media firestorm after making a rude comment about Gomez’s appearance on an Instagram post. The outspoken Italian fashion guru hit headlines after he wrote “E proprio brutta!!!” – which translates to “She’s so ugly!!!”– in a caption section beneath an image of the singer.
The Dolce & Gabbana frontman made the offending remark in Italian in relation to a polyptych of photos of the singer on the red carpet uploaded by celebrity fashion trends blog, The Catwalk Italia.
Gabbana then doubled down on his attack against the Come And Get It hitmaker after another commenter suggested Selena “looks like a Pomeranian dog”, to which he responded “Hahahahahaha is true hahahaha.”
Selenators are not gonna let this one slide. The fashion designer’s comments have prompted a slew of outraged responses from the singer’s loyal fanbase, with many users labelling his behaviour as “disrespectful” and “disgusting” and describing the incident as online bullying.
Selena has not responded to Stefano’s comments, but her friend Miley Cyrus is now blasting the fashion designer.
“What that d**k head said (if it’s true) is f**king false and total bull s**t,” Cyrus wrote in the comments section of a fan photo of the two singers hugging, adding “She fine as f**k.”
However Miley is not the only celebrity to defend Gomez – Tommy Dorfman, who stars in 13 Reasons Why – also took to social media to call out Gabbana over his comments.
“@stefanobabbana you’re tired and over. your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018,” he wrote online. “it is no longer tolerable or chic. please take many seats.”
