Designers, fashion editors, and critics around the world are trying to contextualize -even justify- how fashion bighouse Dior designer, John Galliano, could possibly go on a disgusting racist tirade in a Paris cafe. "I'm genuinely shocked," "I'm 0.2% surprised," "Dumbass of the Year - 2011, and it's only March" and "Who's that?" were some of the comments my friends said when I brought the topic up within the past few days. Honestly, I don't think I can say anything that hasn't been said - his comments were absolutely vile and I felt the urge to shower after watching the video. He let us, his loving admirers, down. Will I end up forgiving him someday? Probably. Everyone deserves a second chance. But this will take longer then an average predicament.
So, what do all of you think of this situation? Was his firing justified? Etc? Would love to hear your thoughts, fellow bloggers.
