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."

I just want to add that the comment about the jewish women being gassed can't really be used against him because it was a fact. Now Im NOT saying that that is my belief because I completley disgree with that whole thing. But if Hitler was still in power, jewish people would still be getting murdered. But at the same time, times have changed and I doubt the U.S or any other countries would stand by and just let this mass genocide happen. Also, Jewish people have moved about around the world (along with other races) so in order to kill, Hitler would have to set foot in other countries and I dont think that'd fly with them. Just my little rant.

It just goes to show there is a massive gulf between peoples public and private persona. His true opinion only came out because he had no idea he was being filmed!

Another reader made a really good point. He would have been one of the many people killed. Jerks don't realize that the Jews weren't the only ones that suffered in the Holocaust. They made up the majority of the very unfortunate, but: Afro-Europeans (manditory sterilization for black youths)
Jehovah Witnesses
Gypsies
Homosexuals (they were made to wear pink triangles)
Catholoics/Christians A little education goes a long way.
