Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Italian designers, expressed support of traditional marriage in a March 2015 interview with Panorama magazine, causing an uproar on social media.

While Dolce and Gabbana are gay and had previously been a couple, they said on the topic of in vitro fertilization, surrogate mothers, and gay adoptions that "there are things that should not be changed."

“I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented wombs,” Dolce said.

Here are some comments made in disagreement and calling for a boycott of the brand:
