Video Aids In Galliano’s Downfall

Anti-Semitism seems to be all the rage lately, and Christian Dior designer John Galliano is nothing if not on trend as he is the latest to get caught at the cross-section of where ugly behavior meets technology. If you haven’t read about it, Galliano has had three (known) outbursts in the past few months where he ranted along antisemitic and racist themes, but it was only until one was caught on video that people really started to take notice — and this week he lost his job.

The Telegraph asked legendary Italian designer Giorgio Armani for his reaction to the mess, and he said, through a translator, that he was “very sorry for him” and “also very sorry that they videotaped him without him knowing.” Interesting that to him that is the worst part. Apparently Armani doesn’t think it’s inappropriate, or just plain mean, to say things like, “I love Hitler. People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be fucking gassed.”

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: If you are a public figure, in any field, you need to get accustomed to the fact that everyone has the ability to record what you do now, and they probably will at some point. So the tragedy is not in being caught, the tragedy is being really, really dumb.
