John Galliano Fired from Dior!

If you've been following the news recently, you know that Galliano was suspended from fashion powerhouse Christian Dior after complaints of him harassing a Jewish couple in Paris with anti-semitic remarks. After (allegedly) a video surfaced of him praising Hitler, Dior has begun the process to fire him. I was actually surprised they acted so fast on this, given that he's been the head of design for so long, but I commend it. I've always loved Dior's designs, but it's a bitter pill to swallow knowing that those clothes came from someone with Galliano's deplorable character. I'm not sure what the legal ramifications of this are going to be for Galliano (since anti-semitic remarks are illegal in France), but I hope he gets his due. I have to say, though, this makes me love Dior (as a company) more.

The thing I find confusing and a little disturbing about this whole thing (besides the obvious) is that as a gay man who has undoubtedly faced discrimination somewhere in his years of life, how can he inflict the same ignorance on somebody else? His words during this little tirade were: "I love Hitler. People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed." I guess he forgot that he would be gassed along with them for being homosexual. You can watch the video below:

What do you guys think of this whole thing? I, for one, am disgusted and shocked about his behaviour.
