"We are Italian and we don't care about politics and mostly neither about the American one! We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it's simply ignorant," the Italian designer replied. "We don't need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!"
Here is the more accurate, clearer English translation:
"We are Italian and uninterested in politics, even less so in American politics !!! We make dresses and if you think you can do political [work] in a post you are simply an ignoramus. We don't need your posts or comments. Next time ignore us please!!"
The irony of labelling Miley ignorant is pretty laughable, especially considering Gabbana completed his post with the #boycottdolcegabbana – harking back to the Internet's response to his "synthetic children" comments regarding children conceived by artificial insemination. The hashtag was also resurrected when D&G announced they were proud to dress Melania Trump...only to then be screen-printed onto a t-shirt by the brand for online purchase.
What is there to be learned by this? Not a whole lot, other than the reminder that attempting to call-out a troll will likely always prove frustrating and pointless. Better to leave them happily unprovoked below their bridges to live their worst lives. Just look at Piers Morgan.
