John Galliano Found Guilty of Hate Crimes

by at . Comments

John Galliano was found guilty of hate crimes in a Paris court yesterday.

The fashion designer, who claimed a drug problem was the basis for his Anti-Semitic rant in February, received a light sentence on Thursday, as a judge issued a suspended fine of 6,000 euros ($8,500), as well as a symbolic one euro fine to one of the plaintiffs in the case.

Galliano will not serve any jail time.

Said the attorney for the former House of Dior employee:

"It's a fair decision and a wise decision by the tribunal. Mr Galliano is relieved after several months. He wishes to apologize and he acknowledges that he caused harm. I think he's relieved that all this is now behind him."

I just have to say that it is a shame that people are still so damn stupid. Be grateful esp to white christians? Really? I belive they had no right to stare and cast ugly looks but to retaliate by throwing racist remarks was childish, hateful, and ignorant on his part. Him being white makes him no smarter or better than anybody else, being christian damn sure don't make him better than anybody esp since inbred nazis and clansman and hicks use that same im christian mentality to justify what they do. Every person is a work of god. Let him judge and love thy nieghbor. He should have just cussed them out and told them to fix thier face if he had to say anything.

Jews in France are allowed to bully non-french Christian gay with hateful and ugly and prejudice stares, but a non-french Christian gay man is not allowed to use his Christian mouth to scream the animals away to remind him the old days of who nailed Jesus?

You need to check into some rehab or something for your hatred !! What is going on with you , why such a hatred ?? give it up & live your life, you sound SO pathetic ! Shame on you that such words are still being spoken in such modern times.
What's important is what we have inside, we all should respect one another no matter how different ( religiously talking ) we are

The Jews coffee shop people expressed hate and bully by staring at John with ugly and hateful look by disrespecting him as a hard-working non-French designer so John reacted by jumping off with anti-semantics words to remind the French new coffee shop people that hey: "Why are you bullying me as a Christian when you were once bullied by Hitler. Why are you bullying me when I am a man who designs beauty when you French new coffee shop people are not the greatest beauties of humanity yet? I might be gay but I make it up by designing beautiful clothes for you people."
