Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi and Zoe Saldana Respond to Dolce & Gabbana Debate
Plenty of celebrities stepped forward to voice their opinions after Dolce and Gabbana made controversial comments about their views on whether or not same-sex couples should have children. The latest stars to chime in are Ellen DeGeneres, Portia De Rossi and Zoe Saldana.
Ryan Murphy, Andy Cohen, Elton John and Ricky Martin are among the stars who have slammed the designing duo for their statements (which suggested that babies born via methods like IVF are "synthetic.") Ellen and Portia spoke to E! News about their views on the comments.
"I mean, there are no thoughts. It's not even worth commenting on because they're, you know, ignorant," Ellen said. "I mean, what's there to say other than….'what?'"
Her wife Portia echoed the sentiment. "The only thing you can say is that, you know, we're all entitled to free speech," she said. "However, I just don't understand who they are. I don't understand why they would want to say that."
"It's not even limited to the gay and lesbian couples. It's anybody who is trying to have a child that is not able to conceive. It's stupid. I'll never wear their clothes ever, ever again," Ellen said.
On the flip side, Zoe Saldana says she will continue to wear the brand's couture.
"No! Not at all, that would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice," Zoe said when a rep from E! News asked whether she would join the boycott against the brand. "People are allowed to their own opinion, however, I wouldn't have chosen to be so public about something that's such a personal thing."
