zero tolerance

I'm surprised that other people were surprised by the news of John Galliano getting fired from Dior after making anti-Semitic remarks. Yes, he is a massively talented haute couture designer, a creative genius who has resurrected the Dior name and a superstar in the fashion industry, but that does not give him the right to make racial slurs. Granted, he was clearly inebriated out of his mind in the video, but someone, whether it be his handler, manager, agent, assistant or chauffeur should have kept watch over him and stopped those girls from filming the whole fiasco on camera. The truly sad thing is Hitler would not have been so kind towards John Galliano, if he had lived during the Holocaust.

In the end, it's a sad parting of what was a wonderful partnership between the House of Dior and John Galliano. I hope he finds the help he needs.
