Weibo deleted the ads from its platform, and the ‘Boycott Dolce’ movement sprung up in their place. In scenes reminiscent of the Nike boycott in the US this September, social media users filmed themselves trashing D&G products and even burning the brand’s exorbitantly priced shoes.
An Instagram post by Gabbana only added fuel to the fire, with the fashionista seemingly calling Chinese people an “Ignorant Dirty Smelling Mafia” who eat dogs. Gabbana insisted his account was hacked, but a D&G fashion show due to take place in Shanghai on Wednesday was canceled, and a slew of major Chinese retailers dropped the brand from their stores and websites by Thursday.
If D&G manages to save face in China, the rewards could be immense.the Chinese consume one third of the world’s luxury goods, perhaps even more if purchases made abroad are taken into account.
I don't see beg in the video, it would be better if they show that money is not their ultimate goal.
"Ignorant Dirty Smelling Mafia"... Racist? Yes! Accurate? Yes!
Only accurate about your mom.
The "my account was hakkked" trick didn't work so well.
just sell their product in Africa , India etc. ...don't go to China,simple.
Chinese has become the biggest luxury goods spender..will D&G miss this chance?
Aaah, if everything was so simple! XD
It cannot be said often enough that culture/religion does NOT equal race!
Chinese have themselves to blame if they have any self respect they would immediately stop buying high price junk especially D&G.
