Madonna joins the celebrity backlash against Dolce & Gabbana

Madonna 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”.

She posted the following on Instagram…

All babies contain a soul however they come to this earth and their families. There is nothing synthetic about a soul!! So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy? Every soul comes to us to teach us a lesson. God has his hand in everything even technology! We are arrogant to think Man does anything on his own. As above so below! Think before you speak.,,,,,,,,,,,#livingforlove

Multiple celebrities have spoken out this week, after Dolce & Gabbana’s statement in Panorama, an Italian magazine…

We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one. … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.

You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that’s how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalog.

The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.

On Sunday, Elton John, who has two children born to the same surrogate mother, went on Instagram to call for a boycott against Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s fashion brand.

Elton John…

How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic,’. And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF—a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again.

A host of other celebrities have condemned the fashion house using John’s original hashtag.

Courtney Love…

I just round up all my Dolce & Gabbana items and want to burn them. I’m just beyond words and emotions. Boycott senseless bigotry! #boycottD&G

Ryan Murphy…

These designers horrifying views are never in fashion. Their clothes are as ugly as their hate. #BoycottDolceGabbana

Victoria Beckham…

Sending love to Elton David Zachary Elijah & all the beautiful IVF babies x vb

Ricky Martin…

Dan Bucatinsky…

I’m delighted neither Dolce nor Gabbana are parents. They hate themselves too much to give a child love.

Martina Navratilova…

Right on Elton and David… My D&G shirts are going in the bin- don’t want ANYONE to wear them

Al Roker…

In spite of what @dolcegabbana think, my beautiful IVF children are not “synthetic children”. I agree with @eltonjohndotcom
