Natalie Portman triumphs over John Galliano’s anti-semitism

Actress Natalie Portman, who recently got an endorsement deal to work with Christian Dior, got their chief designer John Galliano fired after a video surfaced of Galliano telling a young Jewish woman that she was ugly and that if only Hitler had been allowed to do his thing, all the woman’s ancestors would have been gassed, preventing her from ever existing.

Natalie, who is Jewish herself, was understandably infuriated by Galliano’s anti-semitism, and issued a statement saying that she would not be associated with Galliano in any way.  Dior made their choice: they got rid of Galliano, of course!  It’ll be interesting to see where this endorsement deal goes, though, now that Dior doesn’t have a chief designer anymore.
