John Galliano has been officially fired by Christian Dior, the fashion house the designer ran since 1996.
Galliano was canned following the release of a video clip showing him shouting anti-Semitic remarks in a Paris bar.
Late last night, Natalie Portman, who’s the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume and is Jewish, lashed out at Galliano, saying she was “deeply shocked and disgusted” by the video, noting she “will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.”
Christian Dior Chief Executive Sidney Toledano said in a statement following Galliano’s firing: “I very firmly condemn what was said by John Galliano, which totally contradicts the values which have always been defended by Christian Dior.”
Galliano was fired on the first day of Paris Fashion Week.
