Zoe Saldana Doesn't Think Dolce & Gabbana's Anti-gay Remarks Should Affect Her Fashion Choice: VIDEO


Actress Zoe Saldana is the latest celebrity to weigh in on Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s “synthetic children” and gay adoption remarks and despite vocal outcry from multiple celebrities against the designers, Saldana voiced her support for them, saying she won’t stop wearing Dolce & Gabbana reports E! Online. Saldana said that changing her fashion choices because of the fashion duo’s unpopular opinions would be the "stupidest thing."

Said Saldana: 

"No! Not at all, that would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice…People are allowed to their own opinion, however, I wouldn't have chosen to be so public about something that's such a personal thing. I’m certainly not going to stop wearing Dolce, and I'm certainly not going to be refuting when they are adopting synthetic children, however they wanted to say it. I do think things are lost in translation…

"My husband (Marco Perego) is from Italy and if I judged him based on the words that he misuses in our English language he wouldn't be here today. It's like ‘Look people, have a drink, relax, it's okay.’ Obviously it caused some sensitivity, but then again if you continue to follow the news, you see they all kinda hugged it out, so why are we making a big deal about it?"

The D&G design duo uttered the now infamous remarks in an interview with Panorama magazine, saying that they oppose gay adoptions. Also, Dolce’s comments calling children born of "chemistry," a reference to IVF, "synthetic children," angered several celebrities including Elton John, Madonna, Sharon Stone and Ricky Martin.

Said Dolce:

"You are born to be a mother and a father. Or at least that's how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented wombs, semen chosen from a catalog."

D&gDolce and Gabbana have since backpedaled on their original statements and choice of words, with Gabbana stating "It was never our intention to judge other people’s choices. We do believe in freedom and love." Dolce mirrored Gabbana’s statement saying "I was talking about my personal view, without judging other people’s choices and decisions." Despite the vocal backlash from LGBT supporters, Dolce and Gabbana have since received support, whether they want it or not, from the National Organization for Marriage who called the designers "wonderful advocates for the true definitions of marriage and family."

Madonna Fires Back at Dolce and Gabbana Over Parenting Comments: 'There Is Nothing Synthetic About a Soul!!'


Maddona is throwing her rebel heart into the ring of the Dolce and Gabbana controversy after the designers stated their beliefs last week that "the only family is the traditional one" and that children born through in vitro fertilization were "synthetic."

Wrote the Material Girl on Instagram:

All babies contain a soul however they come to this earth and their families. There is nothing synthetic about a soul!! So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy? Every soul comes to us to teach us a lesson. God has his hand in everything even technology! We are arrogant to think Man does anything on his own. As above so below!
