Dolce & Gabbana Racist Ad
You might be familiar with Dolce & Gabbana’s outlandish designs, a favourite of rapper Cardi B.
Their latest publicity stunt
Recently, Dolce & Gabbana tried to drum up publicity by producing a video which features a Chinese lady eating a cannoli, an Italian dessert, with chopsticks. They have since removed all three videos of the same series claiming their account was hacked.
It sounds like a blatant lie because the content is congruent with their branding and lousy attitudes.
If you can’t Chinese, the video goes:
“Finally, here’s a dessert not so big you don’t know what to do with it.”
“But to you guys, is it still too big?”
“How about sticking those chopsticks into the side and tasting it?” A woman proceeds to brush cream off the tip of cannoli with chopsticks and sticks it in her mouth.
“That way, you can feel like you are in Italy when you are actually in China.”
With its elongated shape and white cream, the cannoli resembles a penis. The video is making fun of Asian men, playing on the stereotype that they have small penises. Eating a cannoli with chopsticks is clearly an impractical and stupid idea.
On top of that, they intentionally made the Chinese narrator mispronounce “Dolce & Gabbana” and “Bravissimo”.
In the last episode of their racist videos, they claim eating pasta and Chinese noodles are very different. The video shows the Chinese woman fumbling while trying to eat a ridiculously huge bowl of pasta with chopsticks.
The uneducated duo do not realise that there is a good chance pasta is derived from Chinese noodles.
Receipts from @diet_prada
Thankfully, their nemesis @diet_prada has been keeping the receipts of Stefano Gabbana’s racist DMs.

As @dolcegabbana prepares to mount their next runway show in Shanghai this coming evening (7:30PM) and the rest of Instagram fawns over what’s sure to be an overly lavish “love letter” to China, we’ll be wondering if we’ll see chopsticks as hair ornaments, take-out boxes as purses, or even kimonos misappropriated as Chinese costume. Time will tell. For now, we’ll let y’all simmer on this DM between Stefano and Dieter @michaelatranova (chronology is reversed in slides). Word has it that they’re still in the process of model casting (over 200 Asian girls scheduled)…wouldn’t let them walk the show if we were their agents lol. Also, curious what the Chinese government will think of their country being called shit basically…especially considering how strict they are on who to allow to enter the country on work visas based on a thorough social media background checks. • #DGTheGreatShow #DGlovesChina #runway #fashionshow #cancelled #racism #dolceandgabbana #altamoda #rtw #dgmillennials #stefanogabbana #shanghai #chinese #china #wtf #dumb #lame #asianmodel #asian #dietprada
I also screenshot some of @diet_prada’s Instagram stories that show Chinese celebrities and models cancelling their appearance in the show. And the Dolce & Gabbana account actually said, “Ni hao stupid bye” to an enraged user.
Angry Chinese users on Instagram
Many Chinese users used a VPN to comment on Stefano Gabbana’s Instagram account. Instagram is banned in China.
I’ll translate them for you:
“After seeing you on the Weibo trending page, I specially spent money on a VPN to see how my country’s people scolded you on Instagram. It’s great.”
“I haven’t used Instagram for a hundred years. The only motivation was to get in line to scold you, you smelly dog shit. Eat shit.”
“You can’t cover up the truth. I’m here specially to scold you. Don’t provoke Chinese people. Are you afraid of making too much money?”
“You are the hot star of the Weibo trending page.”
“You aunty something (probably a curse word), I’m back. Why did my previous comment disappear? Did you delete it you little scorpion? Who cares, even if you deleted it I need to scold you again. You can’t even understand it so you are like a blind person plucking at hair.”
Dolce & Gabbana Work On Your Designs Instead
The whole situation is appalling because for a major brand like this, content has to pass through the gateway of advertisers and their PR agency. Or maybe Dolce & Gabbana is run by an entire mafia of racists.
I suggest they stick those chopsticks up their butts. If you want to be cheeky and create politically-incorrect content, it should at least be funny.
