Dolce & Gabbana founders say sorry, in Chinese, after race row
BEIJING: The founders of Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana apologised to Chinese customers on Friday as a row over racially offensive posts snowballed, with its products pulled from lucrative Chinese e-commerce platforms.
In an attempt to salvage their reputation in the world's most important luxury market, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana capped a 1 minute 30-second mea culpa by saying "sorry" in Mandarin in a video posted on a Chinese social media platform.
"Our families always taught us to respect different cultures across the world and because of this we want to ask for your forgiveness if we have made mistakes in interpreting yours," said Dolce in Italian.
"We want to say sorry to all Chinese across the world, of which there are many, and we are taking this apology and message very seriously," Gabbana added.
European are racist to the core. They will never improve. Why Asian markets are slave to these racists. ?????? Racist Sonia Gandhi too hates Indians, especially Hindus
Money Talks, BS Walks. Chinese have money, Indians have BS. Thats why Trump''s mocks FEKU''s accent privately, yet FEKU begs him to visit the country.
We have survived 71 years as a democratic nation and none needs visa to visit any where in India but in China a child from a poorer province can''t visit the other part without a legal permission.

Strong sense of patriotism is outcome of education and strong values imbibed in citizens. Sadly this will never happen in India because of our corrupt education system and primacy given to money. Last 60 years we have been taught morphed history with only glorification being that of.gandhi family and their non existent sacrifices. Time that we inculcate sense of patriotism by improving education
