Italian designer duo Dolce & Gabbana have taken their Milan Fashion Week inspiration 'Viva la Mamma' a little too seriously which has ignited fire among LGBT community worldwide and majorly with the most powerful men in the music industry.

British singer Elton John slammed the designers comment on same-sex families on Instagram. In a recent interview with an Italian publication, Panorama, designer duo said, " We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children."

This comment led to a massive anger on social media when Elton John along with Ricky Martin started a movement  #BoycottDolceGabbana and said, " How dare you refer to my beautiful children as "synthetic". And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF-a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions, I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again".

While the world is not yet ready to accept same sex-marriages,a comment like this at this point of time from the world's most influential designers did come as a surprise.What do you think of Dolce & Gabbana 's comment on same-sex families?
