Designers Dolce & Gabbana have found themselves in hot water after sharing their thoughts on IVF.
The duo recently said children who are conceived that way are "synthetic babies," which upset many people — including Elton John.
After bashing the pair and saying he now boycotts their clothing, his friend Victoria Beckham has backed him, by tweeting:

Understandably upset by Dolce & Gabbana's comments, Elton — whose sons, Zachary, 4, and Elijah, 2, with husband David Furnish, were born through IVF treatment — wrote on Instagram, "How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic'? And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF… a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children.
“Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions."

Speaking to 'Panorama Magazine,' the pair said, "We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed."
Domenico Dolce added, "You are born and you have a father and mother. At least it should be like that. That's why I'm not convinced by what I call chemical children, synthetic babies. They are wombs for hire, semen chosen from a catalog."
Though both designers are openly gay, they've been very vocal about not supporting gay marriage in the past.
