John Galliano: “I love Hitler"...

John Galliano: GONE!! “I love Hitler. People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be fucking gassed.”

John Galliano design.
The Sun has the video of Galliano’s rant.
(Update – astonishingly, this is not the rant for which Galliano was arrested last week. This took place on an earlier occasion)
He is obviously drunk. Sober racists usually remember to keep their thoughts to themselves. Drunkeness gives racists permission to speak.
The Sun also reports:
Last Thursday Galliano allegedly insulted Geraldine Bloch, 35, and threatened to kill her pal Philippe Virgitti, 41, in La Perle Bar. Ms Bloch told cops he called her a “dirty Jew face”.
Galliano has launched legal action against French Ms Bloch and Mr Virgitti, who is of Asian origin, for defamation.
You’ll be unsurprised to hear that the subjects of Galliano’s antisemitism “were French and Italian, but not Jewish”. But you don’t need actual Jews for antisemitism.
It was Joan Burstein, the Jewish owner of Browns boutique, in London's South Molton Street who launched American designers such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Donna Karan onto the London scene via the boutique; and she who first discovered Hussein Chalayan (now the subject of a retrospective at the Design Museum) and John Galliano.

Oscar winner Natalie Portman today expressed her ‘disgust’ at British fashion designer John Galliano – saying she would ‘not be associated with him in any way’ because of his alleged anti-Semitism. More here.

  1. What an utterly revolting individual. I'd heard the name of this graceless creature previously, but was mercifully unaware of who or what he was. I wish that I could return to that state of blissful ignorance. Still, the upper echelons of the fashion world are not exactly renowned for being populated by the intelligent, the erudite or the considerate, are they?
