John Galliano Didn’t Say That Woman Had A ‘Dirty Jew Face,’ His Defamation Lawsuit Insists

Unlike most things in his life, Dior designer John Galliano isn’t taking his suspension from the company lying down. Having been temporarily sacked from the company for a fight at a Paris cafe with Geraldine Bloch (and her boyfriend Philippe Virgitti) — calling her a “dirty Jew face” and an “ugly, ­disgusting whore,” saying she had “ugly eyebrows” and “cheap thigh boots,” and threatening to kill Virgitti, who is Asian and was allegedly called anti-Asian slurs — the fahsionisto is now suing the couple for defamation, claiming he has witnesses who were at the La Perle bar on Thursday night and can attest he said nothing derogatory about the couple. So how long before gossip items appear, sourced to anonymous fashion designers, taking swipes at Galliano for saying uncouth things about different races?
