Elton John Calls For Boycott Of Dolce & Gabbana Over 'Synthetic' Babies Remark

Elton John, who shares two children with his husband, is calling for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana's Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana after the pair commented against gay adoptions in an interview.

"The only family is the traditional one," they said in Panorama magazine. "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."

Elton John took to social media to blast the interview on Sunday.

"How dare you refer to my beautiful children as 'synthetic,'" he wrote. "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. Boycott Dolce Gabbana," he added.

For those of you who may not be aware, Dolce and Gabbana are also both openly gay but don't believe in gay marriage or adoptions.

After facing backlash from the likes of John, Sharon Stone and Ricky Martin over the remarks. Dolce backtracked somewhat to say: "I was talking about my personal view, without judging other people's choices and decisions."

"I'm Sicilian and I grew up in a traditional family, made up of a mother, a father and children. I am very well aware of the fact that there are other types of families and they are as legitimate as the one I've known."

"But in my personal experience, family had a different configuration. That is the place where I learnt the values of love and family."
