Thousands gathered outside of Dolce & Gabbana's Hong Kong flagship this weekend to protest the store's newly imposed photo ban.

According to news reports the D&G has put the kibosh on Hong Kong citizens taking pictures outside the store, but foreign and mainland Chinese tourists are more than welcome to snap away.

Umm, WTF!?

A rep for the Italian brand claims their new "policy" is to protect its intellectual property, but there's a rumor going around that says that's a bunch of bull.

A source told the Hong Kong Standard a "well-known mainlander, possibly a government official" was shopping in the store and complained to D&G about the photo taking outside. The so-called "mainlander" feared those pictures would end up online and link his shopping trip to corruption.

Wow. Paranoid much?

We can understand not taking pictures inside the store, but outside is taking it too far especially when it's a public sidewalk.

What do U think???
