Famed designer, John Galliano (50) has been fired from Dior following a video that has surfaced of him very intoxicated and on a very disturbing anti-Semitic rant. “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed,” he says to the women at the table.
The incident took place at a Paris bar last week where he verbally attacked two women (who weren’t Jewish) and led to him being arrested and suspended by Christian Dior.
Acadamy Award winner, Natalie Portman who is Jewish, was supposed to wear one of his dresses for the Oscars, but when she saw the video, she released the following statement:
“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. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”
What a horrible person. I’m glad Dior made the decision they did. If you haven’t seen the awful rant, you can check it out below.
