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

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

In an interview with Italian news magazine Panorama they 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.
