Dolce & Gabbana (Milan) has apologized to the residents of Hong Kong after they protested several times outside one of the brand’s stores, accusing it of discrimination, reports Women's Wear Daily.
“We understand that the events which unfolded in front of the Dolce & Gabbana Boutique on Canton Road have offended the citizens of Hong Kong, and for this we are truly sorry and we apologize,” a Dolce & Gabbana representative told WWD. “The Dolce & Gabbana policy is to welcome the Hong Kong people and that of the whole world respecting the rights of each individual and of the local laws.”
This statement unfolds after a series of protests, with the biggest one attracting 1000 people, reports WWD. The protesters had vowed to continue demonstrating until they had received an apology after a Hong Kong resident had been banned from taking photos at a shop in the Tsim Sha Tsui district.
