Bill Maher Slams Elton John, Liberal Celebrities For “Deeply Stupid” Dolce & Gabbana Boycott (VIDEO)
Bill Maher bashed Elton John and other celebrities demanding a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana on Friday’s “Real Time,” calling the backlash over Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s controversial comments about “synthetic children” born via in-vitro fertilization an example of “crazy political correctness.” Watch the video below.
The comedian explained, “For folks who take such pride in their love of diversity, liberals increasingly seem to tolerate none in their own ranks. I don’t necessarily agree with Dolce and Gabbana, but what is the point of attacking people who are 95 percent on your side?” Maher criticized supporters of rights for same-sex couples for going after the gay fashion designers instead of challenging anti-gay Supreme Court justices and other obstacles to progress.
“It’s easier to get all fake-outraged over the ‘hateful, anti-gay speech’ of two men who bedazzle codpieces for a living,” joked Maher, who expressed disgust with the idea of a boycott, saying, “Really, you can’t sell handbags now if you only agree with Elton John almost all the time?” He later wondered, “How deeply stupid has the far left become when gay designers can’t get along with gay musicians?” Watch the video below, and tell us what you think.
