Dolce & Gabbana is having a tough week. Shortly after its very public Instagram beef with Miley Cyrus, images and videos emerged of Raury staging a protest at the brand's Milan SS18 show.

The singer was tapped to be one of the fashion houses "influencer" models and flew to Milan excited to be part of the show. When he got there, however, he googled D&G to make sure he didn't confuse the two head designers.

Instead, he came across a "#boycott Dolce & Gabbana" tee alongside a faux-protest video, which the brand made to essentially troll people who criticized them for dressing of Melania Trump, which many consider to be an endorsement of the Trump administration.

Raury was insulted by the whole idea, telling GQ that the shirt "completely makes a mockery of what 'boycotting' is. Boycotting is the people’s voice. A protest is the people’s voice. It has power. It changes things."

Instead of co-signing Dolce & Gabbana, Raury decided to stage a protest. Waiting until walking out during the show's finale, Raury took off his hoodie to reveal the slogans “PROTEST D&G,” “GIVE ME FREEDOM,” and “I AM NOT YOUR SCAPEGOAT” painted on his chest.

Obviously the brand were not happy. Raury was thrown out of the show, and edited out of the post-show footage so until now, only people who we're actually there knew about the protest.
