Galliano, Guilty!

Verdict is in for John Galliano from Christian Dior (well EX Christian Dior).. He was found guilty and will pay $8,400 in fines. He did not not appear in court for the verdict.

The 50-year-old British designer, son of Italian immigrants, was charged with “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity” based on two separate incidents at a Parisian cafe, in which he spouted off comments about Jews and Asians to fellow cafe-goers. To make matters worse, The Sun dug up a video in which Galliano spits out an anti-Semitic diatribe, saying “I love Hitler.”

Almost immediately this news broke, Galliano was let go from his post as creative director of Christian Dior.
