John Galliano sacked by fashion house Christian Dior following racist rant

Galliano was arrested last Thursday after allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks to a couple in a Paris restaurant.

The Sun newspaper later released a video of the one-time British Fashion Designer of the Year drunkenly ranting and declaring he “loves Hitler.”

In France, making anti-Semitic remarks can carry a jail sentence of up to six months.

Dior’s Chief Executive Sidney Toledo said: “I strongly condemn what was said by John Galliano.”

A lawyer for 50-year-old Galliano has denied the allegations.

It is thought that Natalie Portman may take up the position of brand ambassador.
