John Galliano’s Anti-Semitic Assault Victim Excuses Him Because He’s A Brilliant Designer

Philippe Virgiti, the male half of the couple accusing John Galliano of spewing anti-Semitic bile, and who’s now on the receiving end of a defamation lawsuit from the rehabbing designer, insists Galliano did use those naughty words. But it’s not like he’s actually a Jew hater!

“[T]oday, I am convinced that he didn’t believe what he was saying,” Virgiti tells Le Parisien about the Feb. 24 incident. “I don’t think he is racist or anti-Semitic. Since the incident, I’ve learned about his work. I’ve seen that he put different cultures into his designs. I think that, more importantly, he is very sick and that, above all, he was provoked.”

Um. By you?

      A drunken person speaks a sober mind.

      speaking as someone who has, on festive occasions (such as any day of the week than ends with the word “day”), had a few too many to drink … I simply don’t believe the “I was drunk” apology.

      most likely, Galliano simply said what he really thinks but is too smart to say when sober.

      Watching back the footage of Galliano it’s rather obvious to me that what he said was spoken insincerely. I think anyone who is gay or flamboyant would recognize the tone in his voice as mockingly offensive. I think he said what he did mainly for the sock factor that it gave the conversation. Obviously a bad choice, but every time I see something about this I think, “really?”

      Perhaps if the verbal assualt victim was actually jewish this might have been seen differently.
