Galliano found guilty

John Galliano has been found guilty of anti Semitic behaviour and handed a €4,000 (£3,507) suspended fine plus a further € 2,000 (£1,753) fine in a second complaint.

The British fashion designer received the verdict this afternoon after standing trial in Paris in June on charges of public insult for allegedly using racist and anti-Semitic slurs. The trial addressed two separate incidents, one on Febuary 24 of this year and another which is alleged to have taken place on October 8, 2010.

The former Christian Dior design director was fired from the position in disgrace over the allegations. In the weeks following the incident in February, Galliano was also dropped from his own fashion brand, John Galliano, which is 92% owned by Dior, and came under fire from high profile fashion leaders like Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.

  • What a set up. Poor guy. Those girls that set him up should be jailed.
