Galliano loves Hitler, Dior prioritizes love over money.

After making anti-Semitic slurs including “I love Hitler” and ““people like you would be dead,” and “your mothers, your forefathers” would all be “gassed” for at least the third time, fashion’s bad boy Galliano looks to be fired by Dior.

Portman, not 24 hours after her victory as actress of the year at the Oscars, pushed Dior by declaring (48 hours ago)

“I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced today. 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.”

Some wondered if she would lose her lucrative association with Dior for being so bold. Good to see things go the other way.

Dior’s CEO:

“I firmly condemn what was said by John Galliano, which totally contradicts the values which have always been defended by Christian Dior.”

    Galliano is a fur butcher; he has years' worth of practice being shallow, arrogant, and cruel. This is only what he deserves.

  2. Sherry says:

    Good for Natalie for standing up and condemning hate speech and huge kudos to Dior for kicking Galiano to the curb!

    such fake manipulative b.s. – god knows it's easy to take ANY comment out of it's original context. We don't know what happened before. You can badger a person into saying anything. This world makes me sad.

    shes the best!

  5. […] care about changing the world for the better, and do respect the few celebs I see really work for great causes: Redford, Natalie Portman, Clooney, Pitt n’Jolie. […]
