TOLERANCE ALERT! A fashion icon loved Melania Trump’s dress, and all hell broke loose

Melania Trump dress

Love is love, we’ve been told. Unless you love Melania Trump’s dress. Then you are a racist bigot, apparently.

Fashion icon Stefano Gabbana (of Dolce & Gabbana) took to Instagram recently to compliment Melania Trump for wearing his dress. The response from liberals was about what you would expect.

Here is the original Instagram post:

Melania Trump #DGwoman ❤❤❤❤❤ thank you ???????? #madeinitaly????????

The response was swift and angry. It was like Hillary Clinton lost the election all over again. Feedback ranged from “Oh hell no” to “You’re supporting ignorance.” So much hate over a Melania Trump dress. What will liberals do when a real crisis strikes?

Heat St. summarized the response.

Fashion bloggers seethed with derision. On Gabbana’s original post, haters flooded the comments section, lobbing insults at the Italian design maestros like, “you’re garbage and your brand is tacky,” and accused the duo of being complicit in a controversial election. “You should know stefano that OUR election has torn apart our country….If it were Mrs Reagan, Bush or Obama (either party) no one on either side would mind. But this is offensive to the core…”

Another accused D&G of aiding and abetting Nazisim: “No! Whether she’s beautiful or not, would you be proud to dress Eva Braun? So wrong.”

Gabbana, for his part, didn’t seem to care that folks were offended. He continued to defiantly post about the dress. I suppose he realized that most of the haters cannot afford to buy his clothes, or don’t look nearly as good in them as Melania.
