Stefano Gabbana, co-founder of the iconic brand Dolce & Gabbana, is a firebrand against political correctness in the fashion industry.
Here are some of Gabbana’s social media comebacks against political correctness:
“I love to be free. Free, free, free, free, free. I love to say what I think,” Gabbana told The Washington Post. “I’m not afraid. What I say is not wrong, but it’s out of the system. But it’s really what I think.” He added that “You find the truth from ordinary people, not in politics.” Gabbana sure caused quite a commotion with his comments below.
