The claws are out. Stefano Gabbana, one half of the label Dolce & Gabbana, just called Selena Gomez “è proprio brutta” on Instagram. His comment roughly translates to “she’s so ugly”.

Gabbana’s comments surfaced on a picture of Gomez wearing 5 different red dresses, but they didn’t stop there. One hater also called compared Gomez to dog, saying she “looks like a Pomeranian”. Gabbana agreed, saying, “hahahahahaha is true hahahaha.”

Of all people to pick a fight with, Gabbana shouldn’t have picked Gomez. The singer has legions of fans that follow her and is also the most followed person on Instagram.

“You’re tired and over. Your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018,” wrote “13 Reasons Why” actor Tommy Dorfman. “It is no longer tolerable or chic. Please take many seats.”

Indeed, these kinds of disparaging remarks are becoming increasingly unacceptable today, which we’ve seen with cases like Roseanne, and Kendrick Lamar.

Naturally, others came to Selena’s side to defend the singer—one of those being former Disney friend Miley Cyrus.

“Well what that dick head said (if it’s true) is f—ing false and total bull s—. She’s fine as f—,” wrote Cyrus on the Instagram post.

But apparently Gabanna doesn’t care about any potential backlash for his comments. The Italian designer mocked Gomez on his own Instagram account, saying things like “MY NAME IS SELENA” and “#SAYSORRYTOME.” 

Gabanna, and his counterpart Dolce, has had a longstanding history of making controversial remarks. In 2015, they were quoted saying that in vitro fertilization is “unnatural” and that they only support natural child rearing and birthing methods.

Perhaps even more bizarre, the openly gay couple have also denounced gay adoptions in the past, which they have since apologized for in various statements.

Since their comments have gone viral, people on Instagram have started the hashtag #BoycottDolceGabbana. The brand continues to wrangle young talents for its runway shows despite the backlash.

However, according to Twitter, Gabanna’s remarks have landed him in hot water.

It’s hard to confirm the reliability of these sources, but if they are in fact accurate, Gabbana should probably go offline for awhile.
