Watch as John Galliano commits career suicide. The Dior fashion designer initially denied charges of hurling racially motivated insults at patrons in a Paris bar last week. But he’ll have a very tough time denying this video.
The video was posted by the U.K.’s Sun newspaper and shows a slurring Galliano telling two women at the Paris bar Le Perle, “I love Hitler” after they asked him the color of his hair. Galliano tells them, “People like you would be dead today. Your mothers, your forefathers would be f**king gassed.”
Galliano, who has been Dior’s head designer since 1996, tells one woman, “You’re ugly.” When she asks him, “You don’t want peace in the world?” Galliano responds, “Not with people that are ugly.”
Looks like Natalie Portman dodged a PR bullet when she didn’t wear a Galliano gown to the Oscars Sunday (Feb 27). She hasn’t worn the designer’s dresses once during the 2011 awards season. Is it possible that she knew about or suspected his racism and anti-Semitism?
His goose is certainly cooked in the luxury fashion world. And not even Target will touch Galliano now.
