Miley Cyrus criticises Dolce & Gabbana over social media
Miley Cyrus, whose younger brother Braison Cyrus walked in the spring '18 Dolce & Gabbana show, took to Instagram to share her excitement about her brother's ramp debut but she also slammed the fashion house over its "politics". The post, which seemed congratulatory in the beginning took a different turn when she criticised the brand, which hit back at her, terming her post "ignorant".
"Congrats @braisonccyrus on walking in your 1st runway show... I love you Prince Suga Bear and seriously congratulations on your experience! I am so proud of you always.... From Nashville to Italy! (sic)," Miley captioned her brother's photo on Instagram. "PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics.... but I do support your company's effort to celebrate young artists and give them the platform to shine their light for all to see!"
Miley did not specify what she meant by brand's politics, but it seemed related to designer Stefano Gabbana's support of First Lady Melania Trump. Stefano said if she did not like the brand, she was free to ignore it.
"We are Italian and we don't care about politics and mostly neither about the American one! We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it's simply' ignorant. We don't need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!! #boycottdolcegabbana," Gabbana wrote reposting Cyrus' post.
The fashion house has faced criticism on social media for its support of Melania, who is often spotted in the label's designs.
