John Galliano Found Guilty Of Making Anti-Semitic & Racist Comments — But Luckily Not Going To Jail!

Thu, September 8, 2011 9:28am EDT by 3 Comments

The designer has been under fire for his outrageous outbursts and now he’s going to pay — literally!

John Galliano was found guilty of hate crimes for remarks he made on two different occasions and has been fined 6,000 euros (or 8478 dollars at the current conversion rate). He also has to pay one euro to each victim of his crimes as a symbolic act and will be on probation for the next five years. Do YOU think the punishment fits the crime?

He got off fairly easy, not having to spend a minute in jail for his crimes, and his lawyer says that John felt “relieved” after the sentencing.

Though the designer won’t be paying for his inexcusable remarks behind bars, it has yet to be seen if his career will ever recover.

If he wasn’t gay, I’m sure he would’ve not been found guilty. The justice systems still sucks.

I do not think that saying something derogatory should be considered a crime. There is still freedom of speech—or is there not? I do not agree with what he said and you have to realize that he was under the influence when he said it. If he had attacked a jewish person physically, then of course that would have been a crime. Being a drunken idiot who runs off at the mouth is not.

I’m surprised that making a derogatory remark against any person or person’s is criminal. Also surprising is Galliano’s best clients are Jewish woman, talk about biting the hand that feeds you. This issue is much ado about nothing. I don’t have a clue what was said, but perhaps he has learned to make negative comments behind closed doors perferably at his dining table.
