Famous Designer

Detained for Anti-Semitic Rant

2/25/2011 10:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Galliano -- the head designer at Christian Dior -- was briefly detained in Paris last night for allegedly attacking a couple at a cafe ... and spewing anti-Semitic insults at them.

John Galliano

According to the Associated Foreign Press, cops swooped in and detained Galliano ... and found that he had been drinking. Galliano was released without charges ... and escorted home by police.

The details surrounding the incident are sketchy ... but Galliano's lawyer Stephane Zerbib told AFP the designer "formally denies the accusations of anti-Semitism made against him."

Dior has officially suspended Galliano pending an investigation into the incident.

FYI -- Kate Moss recently announced she tapped Galliano to design her wedding dress.

Does this "genius" not know that poofters like him were on Hitler's hitlist right along with the Jews. Obviously, the day that was covered in history class, he was su*king co*k underneath the bleachers.

Well, I was raised by racists. Though I've seen the light I worry about how much of that "programming" might still be in there (my brain), if I were to loose my faculties for a period of time (like being really drunk). I would hope that my true friends wouldn't hold things I can't remember saying against me. We all know what being part of the struggle means and how difficult it is to go against "the training" you received when you were just a toddler. You can't help what they did to you, before you were six years old. I often fear that I'll go off my head, and that early racism will "kick in", and I'll offend people, of color, who I've grown to love more than life itself. That said, this guy is a complete jerk. IMO. He's making it IMPOSSIBLE for me, as a white man raised by racists, to feel sorry for him. Looking at his fashion, that seems to be his only talent. It certainly isn't fashion design and "they" are well rid of his mediocre talents, either way.
