ohn Galliano tells a stranger “I love Hiltler…” – but it gets uglier!
Fashion Designer John Galliano has been fired by Christian Dior after he was arrested allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks in a Paris cafe last Thursday.
Since the incident, a video starring John Galliano has surfaced. It shows the 50-year old fashion designer spewing hatred at female customers of La Perle bar in Paris. In the video John Galliano says (quite snidely): “I love Hitler. People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f—ing gassed.”
It appears that John Galliano is highly intoxicated in the “Hitler” video, and Italian Vogue‘s Franca Sozzani agrees. But she is standing by John Galliano, suggesting he may have been baited into saying the Hitler comments. She blogged that John Galliano “was clearly provoked, and filmed, while obviously inebriated.”
An explosion was more than probable when you add together the amount of alcohol Galliano had consumed and the provocations of the people speaking to him. Of course we condemn the extremely seriously racist content of what he said… We don’t want to go on an obsessive search for hidden motives, but perhaps behind this event are just some parvenus of journalistic scandal who, in our opinion, were waiting to have three minutes of video to sell to someone for a good deal more than 30 pieces of silver.
Natalie Portman, Academy Winning actress and face of Christian Dior says she is ”disgusted and shocked” by John Galliano’s Hitler comments and “will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.”
A rep for Christian Dior released the following statement regarding John Galliano’s Hitler video: “Today, because of the particularly odious nature of the behavior and words of John Galliano in a video made public this Monday, the Christian Dior house has decided to lay him off immediately and has begun firing procedures against him.”
So John Galliano was drunk and may possibly have been “baited’” to say those sort of things? That’s funny, I don’t think I could ever be that drunk to say something so awful. Could you?
