Dolce & Gabbana Wage Unsuccessful Counter-protest of Elton John on Instagram

Design duo Dolce & Gabbana has responded to Elton John's call to #BoycottDolceAndGabbana with dozens of Instagram posts in the past 24 hours.
The singer first called for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana after the high fashion designers made controversial comments related to gay adoption and In Vitro Fertilization in an interview with Italian magazine Panorama.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who were were in a relationship for 23 years and do not have children, put on a family-themed show during Milan Fashion Week earlier this month. It featured models wearing pregnant bellies and holding babies.
Elton John, who has two children with husband David Furnish born to a surrogate mother, declared a boycott on Dolce & Gabbana after their comments calling children conceived via IVF "synthetic." The #BoycottDolceAndGabbana hashtag took off, accompanying pictures of D&G perfume bottles in garbage cans.
Gabbana has attempted a counter-protest of Elton John on his Instagram account on Monday, but it hasn't been going so well. His feed has featured screencaps of Instagram comments, collages and even an appropriation of the Charlie Hebdo slogan — "Je Suis Dolce & Gabbana."
