I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.
—Natalie Portman, the newly crowned Oscar winner and face of Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie perfume, condemns anti-Semitic gay designer John Galliano (after refusing to comment following her big win Sunday night). Does this mean she’s returning Dior’s check? (Update: Maybe! Dior just fired Galliano.)
