Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani defends Galliano - while using a coded antisemitic slur herself



Here's what she wrote originally:

"When it comes down to it, there’s proof of what happened to John Galliano – there’s the video, posted by The Sun on its website.

It’s all in high definition – especially the sound – and the image is enviably composed. However, we aren’t clear about one thing: the video starts right at the moment when Galliano launches his tirade. So one or the other must be true: either whoever took it was a master of timing, or what we are seeing is a video created for this purpose. In other words, possibly it was made by holding the mobile in the hand waiting for the celebrity – evidently provoked – to explode.

Of course we condemn the extremely seriously racist content of what he said (there’s even a hypothetical apology for Nazism).

We don’t want to go on an obsessive search for hidden motives, but perhaps behind this event are just some parvenus of journalistic scandal who, in our opinion, were waiting to have three minutes of video to sell to someone for a good deal more than 30 pieces of silver.

We are not justifying at all his behaviour and we also think it's grave and heavy what he said. We just wanted to point out how awkward it seems to listen to the voices of people recording: they seem to be messing with him."


Now, the offensive sentence has been revised to:

"We don’t want to go on an obsessive search for hidden motives, but perhaps behind this event are just some parvenus of journalistic scandal who, in our opinion, were waiting to have three minutes of video to sell to someone for a good deal."
