After Sir Elton John called for a boycott of the designers, Madonna also went on Instagram to bash the brand. "All babies contain a soul however they come to this earth and their families,” the 56-year-old music icon wrote. "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."
This all started after the fashion designer couple's interview with the Italian magazine Panorama. "You are born to a mother and a father. Or at least that's how it should be," Dolce said. "I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented wombs, semen chosen from a catalog."
Gabbana added, "The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging."
Elton John led the charge to fight back at these comments. "How dare you refer to my beautiful children as 'synthetic,'" the music legend -- who has two children from IVF -- wrote on Instagram. "And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF."
The couple later clarified their quotes, saying, "It was never our intention to judge other people's choices."
