Dolce & Gabbana is usually praised for their chic bags and clothing line, however, the release of their new shoe has caused some people to speak out on who they intended to target.
The new sneaker hosts rhinestones, music notes and the words "I love Pizza" an d most noticeably the words "Thin and Gorgeous" which is causing people to react negatively behind the message.
The "Thin and Gorgeous" message creates a stigma that those who wear the shoe are expected to be thin and gorgeous, canceling out women of different shapes and sizes.
Dolce & Gabbana's co-founder Stefano Gabbana clapped back to the backlash in an IG post saying:
"When idiocy distorts reality!!! Incredible!!!! Next time we'll write LOVE TO BE FAT AND FULL OF CHOLESTEROL."
Hopefully D&G recreate the shoe with a more positive message that everyone can relate too.
