This morning UK tabloid The Sun released a disturbing cell phone video which reveals a seemingly drunk John Galliano at a cafe hurling appalling anti-Semitic insults at patrons nearby.
“I love Hitler,” he says. “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed.”
According to The Sun, the video was taken at La Perle, the same cafe where the designer allegedly attacked Géraldine Bloch and Philippe Virgiti last week which resulted in his arrest and suspension at Dior. According to the Daily Mail Galliano called Bloch an “ugly, disgusting whore” with a “dirty Jew face.” (Galliano subsequently launched a counter-claim of defamation against Bloch and Virgiti).
Today also brings word that a second complaint has been filed against John Galliano for allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks, WWD is reporting. Galliano’s lawyer, Stéphane Zerbib, confirmed to WWD that another complaint was filed Saturday by a woman who claims she was the victim of a verbal attack at the same La Perle cafe a few weeks ago. It is unclear whether the second complaint is in anyway related to the leaked cell phone video.
