Christian Dior has removed the designer from his self-titled line

Talented couturier John Galliano shocked the world with his disgraceful behavior, when he allegedly assaulted a couple and went on an anti-Semitic rant at a Parisian cafe back in February. While he was terminated from his post as the head couturier at Christian Dior, the designer’s role at his namesake label was intact — until now.

Design house Christian Dior, (which owns 91% of the John Galliano label) made the decision to remove the designer. Galliano is set to stand trial in Paris in June. If found guilty, he can face up to six months in prison. After his arrest, there was mention that the designer checked into rehab — and while he apologized for his behavior, he denied making anti-Semitic slurs. “I completely deny the claims made against me and have fully cooperated with the police investigation,” he said. “Anti-Semitism and racism have no part in our society. I unreservedly apologize for my behavior in causing any offense.”

Are you surprised Galliano was removed from his post at his namesake line?

Don’t dramatise the event, how many times a year you hate the Jew or Arab? Of course you don’t scream it around, by John it was Marry laws after Liqueur. He is still greatest in his element and the humanity is still more racist then ever.
I am a Jewish and not offended…just amused!

clearly galliano is a drunken db who thought he was untouchable. the very idea of being fired from a company with your name on it must be mortifying and humiliating, and exactly what he deserves more than anything else. untouchable, john? i think not…
