B’nai B’rith International commends fashion design house Christian Dior for firing designer John Galliano after a video recording surfaced on Feb. 28 featured Galliano saying “I love Hitler,” and using racist and anti-Semitic slurs.
Galliano was suspended from Dior following his alleged assault and harassment of a couple in a Paris bar on Feb. 24, where he reportedly said “dirty Jewish face, you should be dead” among other vicious anti-Semitic and racist comments.
There is no place for such abhorrent speech. His pattern of ignorant and vitriolic verbal attacks clearly illustrates a profound lack of tolerance. B’nai B’rith commends the House of Dior for making the right decision and acting quickly to dismiss Galliano and decry his hate speech.
