It wasn't long until the #BoycottDolceGabbana hashtag was trending on Twitter.

It was in an interview with Italian magazine Panorama that the fashion designers said they didn't agree with the idea of gay families.

Domenico Dolce said: "You are born to a mother and a father - or at least that's how it should be.

"I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalogue."

Ricky Martin has six-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino born via a surrogate. The singer opened up about his sexuality after becoming a dad.
