Stefano Gabbana, co-founder of Dolce & Gabbana and Italian fashion mogul, strikes again with his outrageous and controversial comments. This time, Gabbana shared his negative views about singing sensation, Selena Gomez.

On Tuesday, The Catwalk Italia took to Instagram and posted a collage of five red dresses worn by the 25-year-old singer. Although the caption encouraged fans to choose their favorite look out of the five, Gabbana bluntly criticized Selena.

Gabbana commented, “È proprio brutta!!!”, which roughly translates from Italian to English as, “She’s really ugly!” To make matters worse, Gabbana also responded to another Instagram user’s comment, agreeing that Gomez ‘looks like a Pomeranian dog’.

Needless to say, Selena’s very loyal fans rushed to her defense.

This isn’t the first time Gabbana left catty comments on The Catwalk Italia’s Instagram. He recently commented under Kate Moss’ photo wearing a black Saint Laurent romper, under which he expressed his disapproval by simply stating, “No.”

In the past, Gabbana also had a public feud with pop sensation Miley Cyrus when she announced that she did not agree with his company’s politics. When Cyrus took to Instagram to congratulate her brother, Braison Cyrus, for walking the Dolce & Gabbana winter ’17 menswear show, she expressed her disapproval of the brand’s politics.

In response, Gabbana called Cyrus out as ‘ignorant.’ He stated, “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!!”

The same year, Gabbana received backlash for endorsing the First Lady, Melania Trump, in one of his designs. He stood apart from the notable designers who have refused to dress Trump, including Tom Ford, Zac Posen and Derek Lam, who avoided talking about Melania due to her role in politics.

Gabbana told Vogue, “For me, political correctness is fake, because you don’t have the power to explain what you really think.”

In response to the brand’s boycott, Gabbana posted a video on Instagram against all those who criticized the brand just because it promoted Melania as a Dolce & Gabbana customer.

Stefano also proudly screenshot himself blocking off all those who made negative comments about the brand. Translated from Italian, he commented under the post, “This is one of the many invading children who write nonsense.”

In late 2015, Gabbana and Domenico Dolce received a grave amount of public hate when they stated that In Vitro Pregnancies (IVF) were ‘chemical offsprings and rented uterus’. They also referred to children born through IVF as ‘synthetic’.

Not only were these comments looked down upon by the LGBTQ community, celebrities including Ryan Murphy and Elton John also boycotted the Italian fashion brand after the incident.

In March 2015, Dolce told Panorama Magazine, “We oppose gay adoptions.The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus; Life has a natural flow, there are thins that should not be changed.

The outspoken designer uses social media as a platform to slam critics and respond to already existing backlash. Gabbana and his business partner, Dolce, have become increasingly unpopular in Hollywood over the past few years – mostly due to the series of backlash over their controversial opinions.
