Selena’s fans also rose to her defense after Gabbana’s comment. One wrote, “You are too old to be that petty. Leave that child alone. Have you looked in the mirror lately? I’m sure it won’t say you’re the fairest one of them all. What a disgrace.”

Another wrote, “Shame on you for online bullying. Doesn’t matter if 1 million people see it or 1 person. It’s bullying. It’s wrong.

Yet another said, “Calling a 25 year old girl ugly on social media. Does that make you feel good?  Just carry on creating ugly collections reminding us why your brand is irrelevant. What a horrible, spiteful queen you are.

Fans also poured out on Twitter in support of the singer.

Last year, Gabbana came under fire for calling Cyrus ignorant. The singer took to Instagram to congratulate her brother Braison for walking in a D&G show in Milan.

She ended her post by saying, “PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics…. but I do support your company’s effort to celebrate young artists & give them the platform to shine their light for all to see!” Cyrus was referring to the company’s slew of controversial behavior in the past, such as dressing Melania Trump and opposing gay adoption.

Gabbana commented under her post saying, “We don’t need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us! 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. [sic]
