A major player in the global fashion world has publicly proclaimed his praise for Melania Trump…, and was immediately met with backlash from liberals.
Stefano Gabbana, one-half of the Dolce & Gabbana designer label, took to Instagram this week to post a picture of the soon-to-be first lady, Melania Trump, wearing a $3,000 black wool dress adorned with jeweled bows created by the fashion phenom duo.
It didn’t take long for social media sites to light up with outrage over Gabbana’s post, with internet trolls taking aim at him in comments. One commenter even compared Melania Trump to Eva Braun, the girlfriend of Adolf Hitler.
“How disgusting, and how very irresponsible of you. I guess money comes before social responsibility for you,” read another comment.
Gabbana fired back, “How many stupid and ignorant people r on Instagram!!!” He then added, “Please if you don’t like my post unfollow me… thank you.”
Many also vocalized their support for Gabbana’s posts and Mrs. Trump:
Despite the uproar on social media, Gabbana continued to display his pride by posting additional pictures featuring Melania in the designer dress. And, the disparagement continued…
“Sad when a gay designer doesn’t care about other groups being repressed,” write one social media troll.
Kudos to the designer for not backing down: “Don’t call me gay please!! I’m a man!!! Who I love it’s my private life.”
The fashion industry has been on divided ground regarding Melania Trump. American designer Sophie Theallet went so far as to urge her fellow designers not to design for our future first lady.
Typically, designers will stand in line to dress the first lady, as was the case with Michelle Obama. However, in keeping with the upset that President-elect Trump’s election has caused, some designers are now refusing to style his wife.
