One of the biggest names in the deign world has very publicly thrown their support behind Melania Trump while taking on some internet trolls.
Stefano Gabbana, one half of the Italian design duo Dolce & Gabbana, posted a photo four days ago of Melania wearing a $3,000 wool sheath with jewel-encrusted bows from the fashion house.
‘Melania Trump #DGwoman thank you #madeinitaly,’ wrote Gabanna, along with multiple heart emojis.
Almost as soon as he posted the photo, Instagram users began to attack him in the comment section of his post.
‘Discussing you dressed her shame on you!!!!’ wrote one user.
Gabbana then fired back at the woman: ‘Ignorant.’

‘Yuck. I think I just bought my last Dolce piece,’ wrote another individual.
Gabbana replied to that by writing: ‘Great.’ He also included a heart emoji.
‘So disappointed,’ said one person.
‘I don’t care,’ replied Gabbana.
One woman went after Melania repeatedly, leading Gabbana to write: ‘I like Melania. She’s a beautiful woman.’
He also wrote to another commenter: ‘I loooooove Melania.’
To yet another person, who told Gabbana that he would never see her in one of his store again, the designer wrote back: ‘u?? never again what?? i never see you in my store…’
That comment from Gabbana also contained a number of emojis of faces laughing so hard that they were crying.
And then there was the person who told Gabbana: ‘Clearly I can’t buy you clothes any more. Good luck’
Gabbana responded by writing: ‘good luck yo you too.’
Very proud: The designer continued to post photos of the dress and articles about it throughout the week
Finally, there was one person who wrote that Gabbana should not support Melania because he is gay.
‘Sad when a gay designer doesn’t care about other groups being repressed,’ wrote the person.;
Gabbana was not happy with that comment, and told the person: ‘Dont call me gay please!! I’m a man!!! Who I love its my private life.’
Later in the week Gabbana continued to post stories about the uproar over him pointing out that Melania, a former model, wore one of his dresses and looked good in the frock.
