Miley Cyrus and designer Stefano Gabbana engaged in a brief Instagram disagreement on politics over the weekend.
Cyrus penned a congratulatory Instagram post for her younger brother Braison who walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s show on Saturday. After praising her brother’s accomplishment, the 24-year-old made a side note that she “strongly” disagrees with the designer’s political views.
“Congrats @braisonccyrus on walking in your 1st runway show…. It’s never been my little brothers dream to be a model as HE is one of the most talented musicians my ears have ever been given the gift of hearing…. BUT it is a Cyrus family trait to try everything once (within reason HA) and to embrace opportunities that encourage you to step out of your comfort zone,” Cyrus began the post.
“PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics…. but I do support your company’s effort to celebrate young artists & give them the platform to shine their light for all to see,” Cyrus continued.
Gabbana responded with his own Instagram post of Cyrus’ brother and made it clear he didn’t appreciate Cyrus mixing politics with fashion.
“We are Italian and we don’t care about politics and mostly neither about the American one!” Gabbana captioned the photo. “We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it’s simply ignorant. We don’t need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!! #boycottdolcegabbana.”
Dolce & Gabbana has faced backlash for dressing First Lady Melania Trump which led to the Italian fashion house’s launch of its tongue-in-cheek #Boycott Dolce & Gabbana T-shirts.
