Dolce And Gabbana Advert Accused Of Being Racist

They had earlier said that was the reason for the derogatory comments about Chinese people on Gabbana's account.

"In our families, we've always been taught to respect the various cultures in the world".

Gabbana adds: "We would like to apologize to all the Chinese around the world because there are many, and we take this apology and this message very seriously". "We just didn't feel that such an apology was honest enough".

Aside from the controversy, D&G's Chinese joint venture in Shanghai was punished and fined more than 400,000 yuan (US$57,650) in total by the local government twice between 2016 and 2017, as it sold fake, inferior-quality and unqualified products.

He added: "We've always been very insane about China, we've visited it a lot".

"We are very sorry for any distress caused by these unauthorised posts". 'We will never forget this experience and lesson, and this sort of thing will never happen again'.

Chinese model, Chu Wo, posted on Instagram: "Here [is] some Chinese culture I'd like to share". From the bottom of our hearts, we ask for forgiveness.

Dolce told The Associated Press in an email interview before the controversy erupted that the designers had planned an "homage to China, to celebrate the country, and at the same time, to tell our story and love for fashion". Many Chinese social media users called the videos racist and full of outdated stereotypes.

Meanwhile, Karnataka deputy chief minister G Parameshwara has confirmed the death of 25 persons in the Mandya incident. Also, he has directed to postpone the state film award ceremony scheduled this evening.

The videos featured a female Asian model struggling to eat pizza and other Italian food with chopsticks, with a male voiceover imitating the Chinglish accent and mocking Chinese pronunciation of the brand's name.

It was meant to promote the Shanghai show, but sparked outcry in China for its insensitivity, in part because of the model awkwardly attempting to eat Western food with chopsticks.

The Italian fashion house has been in hot water for the videos and subsequent insulting remarks made by the Instagram accounts of both the company and Gabbana.

The crisis for Dolce & Gabbana showed no sign of easing on Friday, however.

According to the Guardian, the designer label has cancelled an upcoming catwalk show in Shanghai after a series of videos posted to its Instagram feed were called out as racially insensitive.

Stefano Gabbana has also been criticised for his past comments on IVF and the #MeToo Movement, as well as making headlines for calling Selena Gomez "ugly" and influencer Chiari Ferragni's custom Dior wedding gown "cheap" on social media.

Dolce&Gabbana apologized on Instagram and said the accounts had been hacked. Meanwhile, the U.S. declaring trade wars against China did not sit well to the Communist Party.

Indignation arose among Chinese netizens, with many calling on Wednesday for the show to be canceled. Celebrities and models, including Zhang Ziyi and Chen Kun, who were supposed to attend the D&G event announced that they would not be attending.
