John Galliano has found himeself jobless today after the British designer was apparently declaring his love for Hitler and disparaging Jews it was revealed today.
The British designer - an alleged Jew hater - then tells a horrified woman: "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed."
Earlier actress Natalie Portman, who is Jewish, and under contract to the company as the face of its Miss Dior Cherie perfume, issued a strong statement to the Associated Press, saying she was "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."
