Elton John calls for D&G boycott over same-sex parents comments

Elton John has called for a boycott of Dolce and Gabbana after the designers made what he called "archaic" comments on in vitro fertilisation and same-sex parents.

In an interview with Italian news magazine Panorama, the designers called children born of IVF "synthetic" and said they opposed adoption by same-sex parents.

The musician, who has two children with his husband born through IVF, criticised the designers for "wagging your judgemental little fingers" at the fertilisation method.

Fashion designer Stefano Gabbana has since responded, saying that "it was never our intention to judge other people's choices."
