Days after announcing he would be boycotting Dolce & Gabbana over the designers’ views on gay adoption and traditional families, Elton John was apparently photographed carrying a Dolce & Gabbana bag.

The Daily Mail published the following photo on Tuesday:

A spokesperson for the musician reportedly claimed the photo was doctored and threatened legal action — but then backtracked later in the day.

A different spokesperson told the Daily Mail, “Yes he was carrying the bag but he hadn’t been shopping. And it should not detract from their original message or the boycott.”

In a recent interview with Panorama magazine, Stefano Gabbana said, “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.” Dolce added, “I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalog.”

The comments led John and other celebrities to boycott the brand.
