“Gone, Like Moses Through the Corn”

Fashion designer John Galliano’s contract with fashion company Christian Dior, has been terminated. In lieu of extending the designer’s suspension, Dior has decided to fire Galliano.

The designer has been accused of making racial slurs to a number of people. The unraveling of the issue began when a reporter posed a question (in regards to Galliano) to actress Natalie Portman.

According to MSN Movies the reporter asked, “You’re a spokesperson for Dior’s Miss Dior Cheri fragrance. Why are you not wearing Dior tonight? And what do you think about Dior designer John Galliano recently being suspended for alleged assault and for allegedly making anti-Semitic remarks?”

Before Porter could answer, the reporter was cut-off and the question was buried.

Initially, the designer was put on suspension, but when a video, providing evidence that Galliano had made controversial statements, surfaced, the company decided to fire him.
