John Galliano - Fired from Dior

If you haven't already heard, John Galliano is creating a lot of negative buzz about now stemming from a negative video (posted below). 

In the video, he is clearly intoxicated but he also makes a very disturbing anti-Semitic rant. "I love Hitler" "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed” 

Acadamy Award winner, Natalie Portman who is Jewish, was supposed to wear one of his dresses for the Oscars, but when she saw the video, she released the following statement:

“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. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”
