Natalie Portman disgusted by Dior designer

Oscar-winner Natalie Portman, who is the spokesmodel for Miss Dior Cherie perfume, has released a statement saying she’s disgusted by Dior head designer John Galliano, who’s accused of making anti-Semitic comments. On a cell phone videotape he was caught saying to two women, whom he believed to be Jewish: “I love Hitler” and “People like you would be dead today. Your mothers, your forefathers would be f***ing gassed and f***ing dead.” The tape was made by a friend of the women, who were Italian and French, but not Jewish. The videographer told British paper The Sun: “Galliano was sitting alone nursing his drink, when a few of us sat at the next table. Galliano kept intruding, throwing in comments about us and what we were saying… We were stunned by what Galliano was saying, but then he started making vile anti-Semitic comments. His words were disgusting.” Several days later at a Parisian café, Galliano allegedly pulled a woman’s hair, called her a “dirty Jew face” and threatened to kill her Asian male friend. Police were called and Galliano was arrested. He has since been suspended by fashion label Christian Dior.  Portman’s statement read: “I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video. 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.” Ironically, Galliano was named one of “the most influential gay people in Britain” by The Independent newspaper. Hitler also sent homosexuals to concentration camps, where they were either castrated, experimented on, tortured, and if they were considered “incurable,” were gassed.

    Wonder when the FAKE apology will happen and everyone will forget his comments and he will continue to be rich and famous and life will go on???

    We have a long-standing tradition forgiving famous a-holes that do and say some of the most atrocious things (Mel Gibson, Michael Vick, Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown, etc… come to mind).

    I suspect that a shallow apology combined with a quick stint at a rather plush rehab clinic will suffice to appease the mindless masses. We should be ashamed of these people, and equally ashamed of ourselves if we fall for their predictable lip-service.

    Wow! Who raised you Admirer! You are no better than any racist,narcissistic,vile,repugnant,ignorant mofo out there. Who are you to speak ill of any other race, creed or culture. Do you know any Jews? You can’t Stereotype a whole culture or race from an encounter or two. In fact those blood suckers, as you so intelligently put, are responsible for more than 37% of all the worlds medical breakthroughs. So when you go get a vaccine for something and get to stage off death and back to your wasted life hating people for no reason, just remember that a Jewish person saved your life just cause. No gratitude needed, nothing in return. Maybe you could learn something, instead of just existing and forgetting what freedoms you have here in Canadian. DOUCHE!

    Wow! I’m shocked!! Good for you Natalie! I wish more of those in the celebrity limelight would get their tails arrested. You can’t be that ignorant and working with people with different ethnic backgrounds and not be surprised when they are hurt by horrible words like that. I hope this sets an example for certain racist folks out there!

    No, Admirer, you’re wrong. You’re the one who is a blood sucker. You probably suck all the joy out of life for everyone around you. People like you make me sick. I don’t care what colour or religion or race you are. You’re disgusting.

    I can’t believe I missed Admirer’s colorful post. Have you ever noticed how morons often start sentences with the phrase “In all honesty”? It’s like they engage in chronic lying the rest of the time.

    Anywho, I think we should chip-in to buy Admirer a one-way ticket to France. They have a legal system that deals with anti-Semites efficiently.

    I can’t believe Tribute let this “tool’s” (rightly stated SarahP) post stand…

    Natalie Portman disgusts me. At first she’s all like, oh I would never do a nude scene, next thing she’s doing nude scenes left and right and now lesbian scenes. I can’t stand hypocrites.

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like this instead.

    I’m disgusted by both of them.
