John is leading a boycott of the label after Dolce called children conceived by alternative methods "synthetic babies" during a recent interview with an Italian magazine. Other celebrities, including Ricky Martin, Courtney Love and Martina Navratilova, have joined the boycott, which Stefano Gabbana has reportedly criticized as "an authoritarian way of seeing the world: Agree with me or, if you don’t, I'll attack you."
While Madonna stopped short of joining the boycott, the pop star, who posed for a series of "sexy housewife" ads for the Dolce & Gabbana label in 2009 and 2010, did wag a finger at the two designers.
Posting a snapshot of herself from her former campaign with the label, Madonna wrote on Instagram: "All babies contain a soul however they come to this earth and their families. There is nothing synthetic about a soul!! So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy? Every soul comes to us to teach us a lesson. God has his hand in everything even technology! We are arrogant to think Man does anything on his own. As above so below! Think before you speak.,,,,,,,,,,,??#livingforlove."
