seerpress.com

British fashion designer John Galliano was found guilty today in Paris for making racist and anti-Semitic remarks. The court fined him 6,000 euros for “casting public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity” (dailymail.co.uk). Galliano had faced potential jail time of up to six months, but escaped with just the fine.

The 50-year-old was fired from his chief fashion designer position at Dior back in February after reports of his racist slurs first came to light. Galliano blamed the anti-Semantic tirades on his alcohol and drug addictions, and later entered rehab. He apologized and claimed that he did not agree with the racist comments he made while under the influence. Galliano was not in court to hear the guilty verdict.
