It’s bad enough that as reported over the past two days fashion and couture designer John Galliano has upset the nation, and world, over his anti-semitic rants, but you know it’s gone very bad when the A-list start to turn their backs.
Oscar winner Natalie Portman is said to be in ‘shock’ after Galliano’s displays of public racist rants surfaced online yesterday. And notably the pregnant, face of Dior’s Miss Cherie fragrance, is said to have issued a statement speaking out against the Creative Director of Dior revealing her disgust at his actions.
Dior have also issued a statement confirming that Galliano has been suspended from his duties after the designer was arrested last week in Paris and charged with assault after verbally abusing a couple in a Paris café.
‘Dior affirms with the utmost conviction its policy of zero tolerance towards any anti-Semitic or racist words or behaviour.’ ‘Pending the results of the inquiry, Christian Dior has suspended John Galliano from his responsibilities,’ said a spokesman for the fashion house.
All this days before the Dior autumn/winter 2011/12 show is due to show in Paris. Sacré bleu indeed!
