If you haven’t been following the coverage of John Galliano‘s public insult trial in Paris, you’ve been missing out. Over the course of the day, Galliano, his accusers and their various lawyers have been painting perhaps the clearest picture of what fueled Galliano’s racist outburst and what led him to it.
Is John Galliano done with whatever treatment he sought after being fired from the top post at Christian Dior? A new video of him walking through Los Angeles International Airport would seem to suggest that he’s on the mend, although he certainly doesn’t seem ready to talk about his recovery with reporters yet. A small group of cameramen (like, way smaller than the one at the Paris police station a few weeks ago) surrounded him, one trying awkwardly to ask if he’d “do anything differently” if he were on the board of LVMH.
According to some of the world’s most prominent writers, John Galliano‘s fall from grace was going to happen sooner or later, anti-Semitic rant or no. And if they’re to be believed, it had everything to do with the way he was coddled and surrounded by luxury by the people at his former employer, Dior.
Natalie Portman, the face of the Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, released a statement today calling the video of Dior creative director John Galliano‘s drunken anti-Semitic tirade shocking and “disgusting.” Portman, who is Jewish, said flatly that she will cut all ties with Galliano, but made no mention of her connection to the Dior label.
When a world-famous clothing designer has to go to court for allegedly using anti-Semitic slurs against a complete and total stranger, you expect there to be a crush of media in attendance. What you don’t expect is a near-impenetrable sea of Nikon lenses, voice recorders, boom microphones and people all trying to get a piece of that designer.
An unnamed woman has come forward to report that Dior designer John Galliano made anti-Semitic remarks toward her last October at Paris’ La Perle, the same cafe in which he was accused of hurling similar slurs at a couple just last week.
Well, less than two days after witnesses came to John Galliano‘s defense, The Sun has published a video clip of the designer telling a table of fellow patrons at Parisian cafe La Perle, “I love Hitler” and “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f*cking gassed.” He also called them ugly.
