& # 39; I really thought you were an ally of us, not just & # 39; the gay & # 39; s & # 39; you so lovingly claim.
& # 39; This is just proof that you should never meet people you look up to … they always disappoint you. & # 39;

& # 39; Sorry to hear about the transphobic comments you made earlier today – thought you were one of the good ones & # 39 ;, wrote a commentator.
& # 39; To know that you are not aware of what you are saying about Trans people, especially during a time when your show is filming, is so disappointing, & # 39; someone else said.
& # 39; In a street and time climate where women can show solidarity and respect you and your cast mates, you are constantly disappointing. The woman is beautiful and you have to remember that you were on march and pay attention to your manners. & # 39;
In an interview with page Six after the show, model Yasmine, 31, revealed that she heard Dorinda and Sonja make their remarks as she walked the runway and noted that they were discouraging and # 39; their discouraging and disappointing & # 39; found.
& # 39; I was very excited to do the fashion show for Garo Sparo for New York Fashion Week because he used models of diversity, & # 39; she said.

Runway star: the Australian model Madeline Stuart, who has Down syndrome, also brought her stuff on the catwalk
& # 39; And I knew they were filming the (real) housewives of New York and I knew they were in the front and literally, as I walked the runway, I heard them make these statements.
& # 39; It's pretty daunting and disappointing, especially on this day and in New York City. & # 39;
Yasmine further noted that & # 39; people cannot choose their sexual orientation & # 39; but that people can choose & # 39; not be rude and cruel & # 39 ;.
Sonja and Dorinda hurriedly apologized after the controversy and told page six: & # 39; we have a history as old supporters of the LGBTQ community in many ways and apologize for our offensive comments at the fashion show. & # 39;
Interestingly, in another clip from the Garo Sparo show that was posted on Sonja's Instagram stories, one of the women can be heard who commented: & # 39; I love how diverse this show is. & # 39;
