- Dolce & Gabbana launched an ad campaign featuring a Chinese model eating traditional Italian food with chopsticks.
- When a woman called out the campaign, the fashion house’s cofounder Stefano Gabbana allegedly responded by calling her “not comfortable in the brain” and saying that Chinese people eat dogs.
- The woman took screenshots of those messages and posted them on Instagram.
- Both the company and Gabbana have since said that their accounts were hacked, but have not explicitly denied sending the private messages.
- It also canceled the Shanghai fashion show.
Dolce & Gabbana canceled a widely-anticipated fashion show in Shanghai after people complained of a “racist” ad campaign, and its founder appeared to mock Chinese culture in direct messages on Instagram.
