Recently, John Galliano Has got himself into a bit of trouble surrounding allegedly anti Semitics comments. A video evidently showed him saying " I love Hitler" controversially causing tension in a conversation at a bar telling them they would've been gassed. I know designers can have an eccentric side to them and share inappropriate opinion but this time he aimed it at the wrong audience. He quoted disgusting views "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed" , which is absolutely unacceptable specifically targeting a minority of the public offending their religion and beliefs which is morally incorrect. Following on this event. Galliano allegedly insulted Geraldine Bloch, 35, and threatened to kill her friend Philippe Virgitti, 41, in La Perle Bar. Ms Bloch told cops he called her a "dirty Jew face" .Galliano has launched legal action against French Ms Bloch and Mr Virgitti, who is of Asian origin, for defamation. Why, he provoked the attack?
The fashion house Dior decided to take action and fire him from the couture label removing him from the fashion circle. Personally I think these remarks are disgraceful and he has deprived himself and erased the image that we once new him by: creative and flamboyant but seeing this horrific side side to him reveals more of his character and what deep disturbing views and opinions he withholds. On the other side the press manipulate everything to get a good story these days and it could have been provoked making him angry as the language that the girls have in the video sounds like teasing making him angry but who knows: there are always two sides to a story!
There will be a lot of pressure to replace the innovative designer that is JOHN GALLIANO because no one out there will promote Dior in the same way that he did and I wonder if the brand will loose popularity over this scandal.
We will later find out...
