By now, I am sure you are all well aware of the recent events, involving Christian Dior's Chief Designer, John Galliano. Galliano drunkenly made anti-semetic remarks to a couple in a Paris bar. The morning I read this in the New York Times, I was disgusted. I was disgusted by the fact that something so far from beautiful still existed in our world. Being proudly Jewish, the things that came out of Galliano's mouth, things like, "I love Hitler", and "You're mothers and forefathers would all be dead... gassed", made me realize that no matter what you do as a career; no matter how beautiful your craft is, you can still be an ugly person. It is vile and sad to think that Galliano carries those kinds of thoughts with him. My heart does go out to him, and I hope he seeks the help necessary for his well-being.
Also, I am very proud of the actions Dior took; they immediately suspended Galliano, investigated the matter further and eventually fired him. I am proud that, like most of celebrities today, he didn't just get a tap on the wrist, and made to give a fake apology for his actions. It shows that no matter how famous or well-known you are in your industry, you still must suffer the consequences of your own actions.
