The stereotypical videos did not fall in good earth for the Chinese audience. When there is also talk of rude and racist comments via the channels of Dolce & Gabbana and Stefano Gabbana to spread fell away, was the fence of the dam. The fashion brand has in the meantime, let them know that they hacked were and it is never their intent was to laugh with the Chinese culture.

Attendees of the show were meanwhile informed that the parade will not take place. It is still unclear whether the trademark was obliged by the local police for the show to cancel or unplug the power cord from the event has drawn.

It is not the first time that Dolce & Gabbana accused of racism. The hashtag #boycottdolcegabbana does not for nothing for a while, the round. The Italian designers did not rest on their heart, but found a way to earn money with it: in 2017 they will launch a white T-shirt with a red heart and the above hashtag. It was their controversial response to the troublemakers.
