    Dior Designer to Face Trial Over Anti-Semitic Remarks

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-12626610

    John Galliano to stand trial for racial outburst

    Officials said a trial could take place later this year. Galliano could face up to six months in prison if convicted.


    He has apologised "unreservedly" for his behaviour and said racism "has no part in our society".

    "I completely deny the claims made against me and have fully co-operated with the police," Galliano added.

    The 50-year-old was sacked from fashion house Dior over the incident.

    The couturier added that he accepted the allegations had "greatly shocked and upset people".

    Police briefly detained Galliano on Thursday night in the French capital after a couple accused him of making anti-Semitic remarks. He also allegedly traded slaps with them.

    He was dismissed by fashion house Dior on Tuesday after footage emerged of a separate incident in which he was shown telling two women in a cafe: "I love Hitler."

    Galliano said he had remained quiet on the advice of his French lawyer, but wanted to make his "position clear" because of delays in the case.

    He claimed witnesses had given evidence to police that he was verbally harassed and subjected to an "unprovoked assault" during the incident last week, where someone tried to hit him with a chair "having taken violent exception to my look and my clothing".

    "For these reasons I have commenced proceedings for defamation and the threats made against me," he said.

    The designer said he wanted to "address the personal failure which led to these circumstances and try and earn people's forgiveness", adding he was now "seeking help".

    He's probably mentally ill, I doubt he's really racist. He is most likely a queer (otherwise very effeminite), so I don't see how he could really be anti-semitic.

    This individual is a creepy sexual deviant, and he was most likely drunk or high when he made the comments, but being prosecuted for such remarks is absolutely absured. Furthermore, had he directed such abuse towards any other group (particularly Christians), the incident would most likely have gone unreported, not to mention ignored by the police. Naturally, the breaking news that Natalie Portman is boycotting the company took precedence over the situation in Libya, and other minor interests, in my local paper.
