John Galliano faces more anti-Semitic accusations
Fashion designer John Galliano, who was suspended on Friday by Christian Dior following an incident at a Paris cafe in which he was accused of assault and insulting a couple with anti-Semitic epithets, is now facing a second, similar charge. In addition, there might be video tape from a third incident. In an undated clip posted on the London Sun‘s website, a seemingly intoxicated man who resembles Galliano tells a couple that he admires Adolf Hitler and says that, “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f—ing gassed.”
According to People, all three incidents took place at the same La Perle cafe. Under French law, anti-Semitic remarks are a criminal offense that can lead to jail time. Galliano’s representative had no comment, but confirmed that his upcoming fashion show scheduled for March 6 will go ahead as planned.
