Victoria Beckham Leads The Celebrities Backing Elton John Over Dolce & Gabbana Boycott

Victoria Beckham, Ricky Martin and Courtney Love are among the stars backing the singer over the fashion designers' "senseless" comments about "synthetic" children.

After hearing their words, the singer and father to Zachary, 4 and Elijah, 2, with husband David Furnish, posted the following comment on his Instagram page:

How dare you refer to my beautiful children as "synthetic". And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF - a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana.

Soon after Elton made the declaration, the hashtag #BoycottDolceGabbana started trending on Twitter, and it wasn't long before other celebrities started to show their support.

Victoria Beckham sent her love to his family and to all the "beautiful IVF babies".

While Ricky Martin told the designers to "wake up" and realise it's 2015.

Courtney Love also agreed with Elton, and threatened to "burn" all of her Dolce & Gabbana outfits.

Just round up all my Dolce & Gabbana pieces, I want to burn them. I'm just beyond words and emotions. Boycott senseless bigotry! #boycottD&G

And many other stars took to social networking sites to voice their own opinions on the comments.

Just read Dolce and Gabbana's weird, bigoted comments about raising kids. Ugh, those guys are so creepy. #BoycottDolceAndGabbana

I just read the article. @dolcegabbana sound IGNORANT and STUPID. I agree with @eltonjohndotcom #BoycottDolceGabbana jb

These designers horrifying views are never in fashion. Their clothes are as ugly as their hate. #BoycottDolceGabbana
