Christian Dior Dumps John Galliano | Creative Director Fired After Anti-Semetic Rants

Posted on: Mar 1

Christian Dior has severed ties with its creative director John Galliano following a second anti-Semetic rant.

In the latest released tirade, filmed last year, Galliano was captured abusing a couple at Paris' La Perle cafe. The intoxicated designer declared "I love Hitler. People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f***ing gassed."

Charming, isn't it? Christian Dior had already suspended the designer when he was arrested last week following allegations he subjected another couple to similar abuse. We're starting to see a disturbing pattern!

"I condemn with the greatest firmness the comments made by John Galliano, in total contradiction with the essential values which have always been defended by Christian Dior," said the firm's chief executive, Sidney Toledo.

Jewish actress Natalie Portman, the face of the label’s Miss Dior Cherie perfume, said she was also "deeply shocked and disgusted" by Galliano's comments.

While Galliano has been promptly dismissed, his final collection will show as planned on Friday in Paris. While it's clear that he's a racist jerk, he's left some pretty big creative shoes to fill. Folks are already speculating that Giambattista Valli, Alessandra Facchinetti, or Haider Ackermann will get a call up. Who would you like to see instated as Christian Dior's new creative director?
