Dior fires Galliano over anti-Semitic remarks

Fashion designer caught on tape saying, “I love Hitler”


 

French fashion house Christian Dior has fired its chief designer, John Galliano, on Tuesday after a video of a drunken, anti-Semitic outburst at a Paris bar was circulated on the Internet. Citing the “particularly odious comments” made by Galliano, Dior Couture’s chief executive, Sidney Toledano, announced that the company has “immediately suspended relations” with the designer. The video shows Mr. Galliano in an apparently intoxicated state verbally abusing customers at a Parisian bar called La Perle, declaring things like “I love Hitler” and “people like you would be dead.” Actress Natalie Portman, who won the Oscar for Best Actress on Sunday, recently signed a contract with Dior to be a spokesperson for their new line of perfume. She has since said “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.” Galliano has denied making the comments.
