JOHN GALLIANO'S RACIST REMARK
John Galliano is the fashion director and head designer of DIOR since 1996. But last Thursday, he made headlines in a different matter...
While intoxicated two times over the legal limit, he verbally attacked a couple at a Parisian bar. Some remarks he used included: “I love Hitler” and “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed.” What makes it even worse is that there was actual footage to this incident that has been removed from websites! (hmmm interesting...)
Dior suspended Galliano hours after the incident occurred, then is in the process of firing the designer. Though he will not take part in Dior's upcoming fashion show, his own fashion show next Friday has yet to be cancelled.
Fellow designer Giorgio Armani said he felt truly sorry for Galliano and warns him to be more cautious about what he says in public and how he portrays himself.
Natalie Portman, face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume, states: "I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way."
At the Oscars this past Sunday, Nicole Kidman and Sharon Stone wore dresses by Dior...
The fact that such a talented man who is such an icon in the fashion industry can have so much hatred toward Jews is abhorrent. The fashion industry is universal, made up of people from so many racial backgrounds. Even though John Galliano was intoxicated, we all know the real truth behind his true feelings, and apparently they were racist ones. Anti-Semitic rants in Paris are punishable up to 6 months in prison. Good luck getting yourself out of this one Galliano! This will haunt you forever!!!
