This fight ain't over!

Another celeb is speaking out about the boycott against Dolce & Gabbana. On Wednesday, Madonna weighed in on social media:

"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"

This was in response to the designer's anti-gay family and anti-IVF comments, made in an interview in Panorama magazine, including statements like: "We oppose gay adoptions" and "I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented wombs, semen chosen from a catalog."

Oh, and just in case anyone thought of calling her out for famously supporting the Italian label through the years—and even once serving as the face of it—Madonna's statement was posted with a photo from her 2010 D&G campaign,  in which she is holding a baby. Suffice to say, despite their history she won't be working with her former friends anytime soon.

As for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, they've gone on the defensive. After issuing a "freedom to speak" statement and then flooding social media with more explanations, the duo opted to appear on CNN to further clarify their opinions. "Maybe he chose the wrong words," said Gabbana of Dolce, adding that he doesn't necessarily agree with his business partner. "I believe in in vitro." They also said they don't have any bad feelings towards Sir Elton John:  "I love listening to Elton John."

You may recall, the singer was one of the first to voice his outrage at the comments: "How dare you refer to my beautiful children as 'synthetic,'" the pop icon wrote on Instagram on Sunday, adding "Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana."
