Jean-Paul Guerlain Page 1
Jean-Paul Guerlain has been found guilty of making racist remarks on French television during an interview in 2010. A French court fined the 75-year-old perfumer $8,000, as well as an additional $5,370 each to Movement Against Racism and for Friendship, SOS Racism Association, and French Representative Council of Black Associations, the three anti-racism groups that acted as civil plaintiffs in the case.
This week was officially the week of Willow. It was also the week that Kanye‘s diamond teeth mystery was solved, Kate Moss kicked a journalist and PETA hated on Michelle Obama. Terry Richardson took some porny pics (yawn), and Anna Dello Russo continued to be awesome.
Jean Paul Guerlain‘s recent racist remarks now have the attention of one of America’s best-known civil rights activists. WWD reports the Rev. Al Sharpton will be flying to France after the mid-term elections to address the insensitive slur Guerlain used twice on a recent news broadcast.
Jean-Paul Guerlain (yes, that Guerlain) is taking some serious heat for using an ugly racial slur not just once but twice during a television interview. The perfumer was discussing the making of his perfume Samsara when he let loose a choice word equivalent to the American N-word.
