Selena Gomez’s fans snapped to her defense after a famous fashion designer had the nerve to call her “ugly.”
The controversy started after the Instagram account @TheCatWalkItalia posted a collage of Selena wearing red, and designer Stefano Gabbana chimed in, commenting "É proprio brutta!!!,” which translates as, “She’s so ugly!!!”
Selena’s fans were quick to clap back at Gabanna, with one writing, “Shame on you for online bullying. Doesn’t matter if 1 million people see it or 1 person, it’s bullying. It’s wrong,” while another added, “We love this beautiful queen.”
Actor Tommy Dorfman, who stars in the Netflix series “13 Reasons Why,” which Selena is an executive producer on, also threw in his two cents. “@stefanobabbana you’re tired and over. your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018,” he wrote, adding, “it is no longer tolerable or chic. please take many seats.”
So far Selena hasn’t commented on the controversy.
