Vile John Galliano Racist Rant Caught on Video. Will it Affect the Way You View His Work?
Unfortunately, for us, that's a big yes.
When we first heard rumblings about an inebriated encounter with a couple in a Parisian bar, with the flamboyant Galliano apparently calling a woman a "dirty Jew face", while odd, it seemed like pre-Fashion Week, um,...whatever. But then we saw with our own eyes his latest rant caught on video (thanks for the heads up, Dawn Del Russo!) by a pal of the Italian girls he was insulting at the next table, again at the La Perle bar. "I love Hitler!" he slurs at them (they're not Jewish). "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be fucking gassed." Obviously stunned, one of the women replies with "Oh my God" and then asks the drunken designer if he has a problem. "With you. You're ugly." Asked where he's from: "Your asshole."

We have no words.
