off with his head! dior bids galliano au revoir.

bravo to dior! they stand out for their deliberative then decisive action on galliano’s anti-semitic rant. dior fired their brilliant but reclusive designer when his disgusting comments were, to his misfortune, captured on film and released to the public.

dior didn’t respond with a knee-jerk reaction when the first allegations were made sans video. with the video now visible, it’s obvious these aren’t mere allegations, and dior’s chief executive and president issued the following statement:

“I unequivocally condemn the statements made by John Galliano, which are in total contradiction to the longstanding core values of Christian Dior. Because of the particularly odious nature of John Galliano’s behavior and views, in a video made public on Monday, Christian Dior has decided to lay him off at once and has commenced formal dismissal procedures.”

galliano brought success to the house of dior, and turning him away leaves them without a chief designer. it shouldn’t take guts to do the right thing, but far too often we see the cash cow protected and excused.

note: i didn’t want to post the video of his rant. galliano denies making racist remarks, which is pretty remarkable, given they’re readily available for all to see.

Undeniably consider that that you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the net the simplest factor to bear in mind of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while folks consider
concerns that they plainly don’t realize about.

You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the
entire thing with no need side effect , other people
can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
Thank you
