Dear Mr. Galliano, Let me get this straight. You hate Jews, yet it’s ok to use them for publicity stunts?
Seen last year with blogger Tavi Gevinson aka Style Rookie, who happens to be a Norwegian Jew. Tsk tsk.
Come on now. I’m a big fan of your work and considered you one of the greats of the modern fashion world. But this recent scandal is disappointing to say the least. And as the granddaughter of a Polish Jew, I can’t help but take it a bit personally.
What the hell were you thinking when you claimed to love Hitler? Your love would have gone unreciprocated! As a very flamboyantly gay man, the nazi’s would have thrown your ass to the gas chambers too.
Oh well. I’m a firm believer in free speech regardless, even when it comes to hate speech;I believe one’s true intentions should be out in the open. So I’m actually glad you outed yourself on this one. I can now make the informed decision to intentionally boycott whatever products bear your name…should any such products manifest in the future. I can’t say I blame Dior for suspending you.
Perhaps Kevin Aucoin said it best “Life is too short to spend hoping that the perfectly arched eyebrow or hottest new lip shade will mask an ugly heart”. Swap eyebrows and lip shades for couture gowns and multi millions and perhaps it’ll make sense to you. Your anti-Semitism makes you and your designs look very, very ugly. No matter how glamorous they may be.
