Only someone with seriously impaired vision - or someone just looking to get a rise out of people online - would dare call Selena Gomez ugly. But that’s just what Dolce & Gabbana designer Stefano Gabbana did on Instagram, and he’s invoked the wrath of Selenators everywhere.
As first reported by the Instagram account Diet Prada, Gabbana commented on a post from The Catwalk Italia, which showed Gomez wearing different red dresses.
"È proprio brutta!” he commented, which roughly translates from Italian to “she’s really ugly!” He also responded to a commenter who said she “looks like a Pomeranian dog,” replying, “hahahahahaha is true hahahaha.”
As PopCrave notes, Gabbana has a history of making rude comments on celebrities’ Instagram accounts; he’s also feuded with Miley Cyrus and her brother, Braison. People adds he’s also recently made a nasty comment about Kate Moss, plus made controversial arguments against in vitro fertilization and gay parenting. He’s also fought back against critics over his label's dressing Melania Trump, and Dolce & Gabbana even designed #BoycottDolceGabbana shirts in response.
But this time, Gabbana has pissed off Selena Gomez fans, and that may have been a bridge too far. Her fans have trashed him on Instagram and Twitter.
I’m Italian and I I apologize for what Stefano Gabbana said, he is over!- ᏒᎥᏟᏦ (@rickrvsso) June 13, 2018
D&G is beautiful but he is literally ugly, he is disgusting!
Selena Gomez is one of the most beautiful woman in the world. Scienze and people say that, it’s not my opinion!

Considering how many times Selena Gomez has worn Dolce & Gabbana’s designs on some of the biggest red carpet events in the world you would think that the co-founder of #DolceAndGabbana Stefano Gabbana, would have the decency to appreciate the free promotion she gave to his brand. pic.twitter.com/sI9V1iVFdn- 𝕵𝖆𝖘𝖒𝖎𝖓𝖊🥀 (@SeIenaskru) June 13, 2018
dear Stefano Gabbana, it’s because of people like you that young girls around the globe have body image issues. that comment was beyond despicable and you REALLY lost all the respect the fashion world had for you constantly acting so immaturely. no class whatsoever pic.twitter.com/cJkZCoaqeH- Salman (@dressvinyl) June 13, 2018
so, you can not like how someone looks, but calling that person ugly on social media without any actual reason is low, especially when you're a grown ass man- milica🌈 (@windinhersaiIs) June 13, 2018

Dolce & Gabbana has not issued a response to the backlash, and neither has Gabbana himself. But given his history of trolling on Instagram, it’s unlikely Gabbana will stop now. In fact, here's the gross thing he posted in response to Internet critics last year.
Update 6/14: Gabbana has since doubled-down on his original insult, appearing to mock Gomez's fans in his Instagram Stories. On Thursday, he screenshotted his OG comment with crying-laughing emojis and the words, "MY NAME IS SELENA!!! #saysorrytome," and, "Omfg #pleasesaysorrytoselena."
A second snap, most likely from a fan, showed Gomez wearing Dolce & Gabbana with the words, "@dolcegabbana YOU SUCK," written in yellow. Gabbana appeared to screenshot this image, and super-impose more crying-laughing emojis.
