Dolce & Gabbana cancels fashion show in China following backlash over ‘racist’ ads

Dolce & Gabbana abruptly canceled a major show scheduled in China after the Italian fashion brand faced backlash for social media posts many deemed disrespectful toward Chinese culture. 

The brand canceled their “Great Show” – billed as a “Tribute to China” – just hours before it was set to begin after several models and celebrities vowed to boycott the event over calls of racism.

“What happened today was very unfortunate not only for us, but also for all the people who worked day and night to bring this event to life,” Dolce & Gabbana’s official account tweeted Wednesday, acknowledging the show’s cancellation. “From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to express our gratitude to our friends and guests.”
