Update 6/14: Turns out, I'm not the only ones puzzled by Stefano Gabbana's out-of-line comments about Selena Gomez. Since the fashion designer called Gomez "ugly" yesterday, Miley Cyrus has clapped back with this response.

According to receipts gathered from @CommentsByCelebs, it appears that Cyrus commented on a fan photo of her and Gomez that directly responded to the Dolce & Gabbana designer's remark. "Well what the dick head said (if it's true) is fucking false and total bull shit," the 25-year-old wrote. "She fine as fuck 😻 ."

Considering Gabbana's words really are total bull shit, it's nice to see Cyrus spitting some truth. We'll see if more celebs rally around Gomez—considering the fashion designer has been busy making enemies all week, we'll go ahead and assume the celebrity community is on the same wavelength right now.

Original story 6/13: Only someone with seriously impaired vision — or someone just looking to get a rise out of people online — would dare call Selena Gomez ugly. But that’s just what Dolce & Gabbana designer Stefano Gabbana did on Instagram, and he’s invoked the wrath of Selenators everywhere.

As first reported by the Instagram account Diet Prada, Gabbana commented on a post from The Catwalk Italia, which showed Gomez wearing different red dresses.

"È proprio brutta!” he commented, which roughly translates from Italian to “she’s really ugly!” He also responded to a commenter who said she “looks like a Pomeranian dog,” replying, “hahahahahaha is true hahahaha.”

PopCrave notes, Gabbana has a history of making rude comments on celebrities’ Instagram accounts; he’s also feuded with Miley Cyrus and her brother, Braison.

People notes he’s also recently made a nasty comment about Kate Moss, plus made controversial arguments against in vitro fertilization and gay parenting. He’s also fought back against critics over his label's dressing Melania Trump, and Dolce & Gabbana even designed #BoycottDolceGabbana shirts in response.

But this time, Gabbana has pissed off Selena Gomez fans, and that may have been a bridge too far. Her fans have trashed him on Instagram and Twitter.

Dolce & Gabbana has not issued a response to the backlash, and neither has Gabbana himself. But given his history of trolling on Instagram, it’s unlikely Gabbana will stop now. In fact, here's the gross thing he posted in response to Internet critics last year.
