Natalie Portman: Shocked and Disgusted by John Galliano, Anti-Semitic Rants

by at . Comments

Natalie Portman has released a statement regarding the shockingly abrasive remarks made by designer John Galliano late last week.

The Dior Creative Designer was caught on camera over the weekend, blatantly saying he loves Hitler and telling a Jewish woman she would have "been gassed" if the former dictator was still in power.

Said Portman, who has worked with Galliano over the years: "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."

In light the aforementioned incident, Dior has fired Galliano. Said Chairman and CEO Sidney Toledano: "I unequivocally condemn the statements made by John Galliano, which are in total contradiction to the longstanding core values of Christian Dior."
