June 14--Stefano Gabbana made a fashion faux pas when he went after Selena Gomez.
The controversial Dolce & Gabbana co-founder responded with a nasty comment to a collage of the 25-year-old singer in red posted on Instagram by @TheCatwalkItalia.
"She's so ugly!!!" he wrote in Italian.
The comment section quickly became flooded with fans supporting the "Kill Em With Kindness" singer.
"You're tired and over. Your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018," wrote actor Tommy Dorfman, who stars in the Netflix hit "13 Reasons Why," on which Gomez serves as executive producer. "It is no longer tolerable or chic. Please take many seats."
Country singer Julia Michaels, one of Gomez's best friends, chimed in on Twitter. "Just here to tell you that you are one of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out. I love you always," she wrote.
Others also jumped to Gomez's defense.
"And we try with kids in school NOT to make bullying. How can educate children if adult people act like that? ?? You are ugly as a person and I pity you. Shame on you," one person wrote.
"Instead of bashing on someone's physical appearance, take a look at yourself first, not only at your looks, but at your character, because since you felt the need to make such an ignorant comment about a young lady who has done NOTHING to you, something must be wrong in your head," commented another. "You should've kept your opinion, because nobody certainly asked for it, and insulting somebody out of nowhere, especially on their looks, is some 7th grade s--t."
A rep for the fashion house did not immediately return a request for comment.
Just days ago, Gabbana left a similar comment on the same Instagram account, which asked for a thumbs up or thumbs down on photos of Kate Moss, who famously walked for Dolce & Gabbana in the '90s, in Saint Laurent.
"No," he replied.
The 55-year-old designer, who has a history of controversy, also lashed out at critics after First Lady Melania Trump donned a Dolce & Gabbana blazer in her official White House portrait. In 2015, he and business partner Domenico Dolce made waves when they said they don't believe LGBT families should be allowed to adopt.
Gomez has not yet commented on the insult.
