New mom Zoe Saldana made a bold statement at the GLAAD Media Awards on Friday, when she voiced her opinion about comments made by Dolce & Gabbana designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana regarding IVF babies and same-sex families.
Well, she did not say what we were expecting! Zoe said she would not be boycotting the brand, explaining:
“No! Not at all, that would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice. People are allowed to their own opinion, however, I wouldn’t have chosen to be so public about something that’s such a personal thing. Obviously it caused some sensitivity, but then again if you continue to follow the news, you see they all kinda hugged it out, so why are we making a big deal about it? I’m certainly not going to stop wearing Dolce, and I’m certainly not going to be refuting when they are adopting synthetic children, however they wanted to say it… I do think things are lost in translation. My husband [Marco Perego] is from Italy and if I judged him based on the words that he misuses in our English language he wouldn’t be here today. It’s like look people, have a drink, relax, it’s okay.”
Sadly, not everything can be solved by just having a drink and relaxing, like the cruelness of what Dolce and Gabbana said.
