Stefano Gabbana has sparked a furore online after the fashion designer called Selena Gomez “ugly” in an Instagram comment.

The Dolce & Gabbana frontman made the offending remark in Italian in relation to some photos on Instagram of the singer on the red carpet.

The original caption prompted fans to choose their favourite look, however, writing in Italian, Gabbana responded by commenting: “è proprio brutta!!!”, which translates to: “she’s really ugly”.

The Italian designer also responded to another user’s comment on the post that Selena “looks like a Pomeranian dog” by writing: “hahahahahaha is true hahahaha”.

Gabbana’s comments have prompted a slew of outraged responses from the singer’s loyal fanbase, with many users labeling his behaviour as “disrespectful” and “disgusting” and describing the incident as online bullying.
