When it comes to voicing opinions, we all know that Miley Cyrus is never afraid to say how she feels. Which is why it came as no surprise when the singer sent a political message via Instagram to a top Italian fashion brand.
Miley’s younger brother, Braison, walked his first-ever runway at Dolce & Gabbana’s spring/summer 2018 show in Milan. She congratulated her little bro on Instagram with a picture of him in action and some lovely words… that also included a dig at D&G. She wrote about how incredibly proud she was of her brother and how it is the Cyrus way to try everything once (which was a joke, obvs). However, she ended the post with a P.S. that got her into a bit of a pickle. She wrote: “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!”
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! We believe in trying something new everyday! I love you Prince Suga Bear and seriously congratulations on your experience! I am so proud of you always…. From Nashville to Italy! 👑❤️👑❤️👑❤️ 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!
That doesn’t seem too bad, though?
This is probably a direct hit at Dolce & Gabbana’s open support towards First Lady Melania Trump, which goes against Miley’s political leanings. The singer is a huge supporter of LGBTQ+ rights, Black Lives Matter and even supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
However, one of the high-end brand’s co-founders, Stefano Gabbana, responded to Miley’s post with a diss of his own, saying, “We are Italian and we don’t care about politics and mostly neither about the American one! 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.”
#Repost @mileycyrus Noi siamo italiani e della politica non ci interessiamo di quella Americana ancora meno !!! Noi facciamo abiti e se tu pensi di fare politica con un post sei semplicemente un'ignorante. Non abbiamo bisogno dei tuoi post e dei tuoi commenti. La prossima volta ignoraci x favore!! #boycottdolcegabbana 😂😂😂😂❤️ We are Italian and we don't care about politics and mostly neither about the American one! 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 😂😂😂😂❤️
Miley has yet to respond to Gabbana’s comments. Needless to say, in light of the growing controversy, I highly doubt you’ll find Miley rocking anything D&G anytime soon.
