John Galliano Scandal

Recently we have seen the images and listened to the clips of the anti-semitic rant of John Galliano. Following these allegations he has been suspended and then fired from the Dior fashion house and is now awaiting trail. All this because of his 'racist' comments on a night out.

In a bar in Paris he has been seen to have made remarks such as 'People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed.' On the video he can be heard to say 'With you. You're ugly.' after a woman asks if he had a problem. He has also been accused of remarks such as 'I love Hitler' and threatening to kill one of the ladies that is pressing charges against him but this is not caught on the video that has been seen in the press.

Galliano has started legal action against two ladies for defamation and has denied the claims made by them but has made no comment about the leaked footage of him.

Personally, I feel that the remarks made by him are careless and have damaged his once respected reputation but we are not aware of the whole situation are and are only aware of the facts that we are given and the part of the evening that was recorded. I do respect him less than I once did but believe that he could have been provoked through the evening which wasn't recored.

For me the next step is to see who will be taking over his role at Dior and securing fashions top job.
