Dolce & Gabbana is shading critics of its support for First Lady Melania Trump with a T-shirt promoting a boycott of the Italian fashion house.
The brand’s decision to dress Trump in a Dolce & Gabbana blazer for her official White House photo sparked some people on social media to call for a boycott. Designer Stefano Gabbana was frequently seen in the trenches of Instagram comments telling people to “go to hell” for disagreeing with the choice.
Trump was also spotted wearing the brand’s design during her meeting with Pope Francis. The designer has been known to post photos of the first lady wearing his designs, often with the hashtag #DGWoman.”
Dolce & Gabbana has announced it is selling T-shirts printed with “#Boycott Dolce & Gabbana,” a nod to the social media backlash. The shirts are available for a hefty $245.
Gabbana has been promoting the shirts on his Instagram with one post captioned, “All the lovers and all the #HATERS Reliving #boycottdolcegabbana.”
