Bill Maher criticized Elton John and other liberal celebrities for boycotting Dolce & Gabbana after the designers controversial comments about "synthetic children" born via in-vitro fertilization, reports Rob Shuter of naughtygossip.
In an interview with Panorma magazine Dolce stated, "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 catalog."
Maher hit back at the singer and other celebrities who have called for a boycott on his show last Friday night.
“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?” he questioned.
“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. “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?”
