And there goes another one...

Paris, midnight Friday: John Galliano is arrested. The reason? Apparently he assaulted a couple at a café by making anti-Semitic remarks. The couple filed a police report against him. Subsequently, he was suspended from his functions as Creative Director at Dior.

Immediately, the Internet went up in a storm about the news. John Galliano has been at Dior for 14 years. He has never had a serious incident or put Dior in the news for any antics. As his first fuck up, he is pretty much ousted. That is not to say that the allegations against him are not serious. They are, but so far, he has strongly denied them. He has shown up at the police station with three witnesses and has filed a defamation suit against the couple.

It seems brash for LVMH to react this way considering the time he has been the identity of the brand and been drama-free. They owe it to him, to at least give him the benefit of the doubt until all proof is assessed. Then again, LVMH is corporate, and we all know how dispensable they consider creatives.
