Natalie Portman DISGUSTED At Designer's Hitler Rant

3/1/2011 11:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oscar winner Natalie Portman says she's "shocked and disgusted" at new footage of a famous Christian Dior designer praising Hitler and telling a young woman that her forefathers would have been "gassed."

Natalie Portman John Galliano

Portman -- who's Jewish and recently signed an endorsement deal with Dior -- released a statement saying, "I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano's comments that surfaced [Monday]."

Portman adds, "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."

Galliano -- the chief designer for Dior -- has been FIRED by the company after a video surfaced showing John launching into a VERY anti-Semitic rant at a cafe in Paris ... and insulting a woman for being "ugly."

In the video, obtained by The Sun, John can be heard saying, "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed."

John was allegedly involved in another anti-Semitic incident last week -- in which he verbally assaulted a couple at a Paris cafe.

MACDONALD BANK is filing a $22,000,000,000; war crimes lawsuit in Washington based on Getty’s support for Hitler. J. Paul Getty; FBI File 100.1202, June 26, 1940: Espionage.

J. PAUL GETTY TRUST; GORDON GETTY; RONALD GETTY; J. PAUL GETTY JR. ESTATE; MARK GETTY; ANNE GETTY EARHART; CLAIRE GETTY PERRY; CAROLINE GETTY; CALIFORNIA LT. GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM & LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART.

An employee at the Getty owned Pierre Hotel in New York City wondered why there were so many Germans being hired and staying at The Pierre during World War II. He called the FBI and the FBI charged J.P. Getty with Espionage, FBI File 100.1202, June 26, 1940. 43,000 people were killed in the UK while J. Paul Getty was in Berlin still shipping oil to Hitler five months before Pearl Harbor; December 7, 1941. The mother of J.P. Getty was German. 2003 do***ents declassified by UK Warfare Ministry reveal that in Oct. 1941 the pro-Nazi Jean Paul Getty employed and lodged Nazis at his Pierre Hotel in New York City; Nazis who were involved in spying on and sabotaging Allied Forces’ war production plants. As aristocrats with treasures of art were executed -- beginning in 1933 -- with the outbreak of war; Getty assiduously added to his vast collection with the Nazis. The Rembrandt of Marten Looten hangs in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Gainsborough of Christie purchased in 1938 is at The Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

This freaking site lol. Seriously is this the Jewish Defense and Propaganda site or what? Every day it's something... praising someone's Jewish nana or digging up some obscure story on some idiot saying something stupid about Jews. I don't suppose we'll ever hear the racist crap that Rightist Jews in Israel or some of the pigs in Hollywood say about other groups right? I'm Jewish myself, grow up. This is literally why (some of) the world hates us.

So, this chick dislikes Jew haters, but is down with child rapists (Polansky)? Good to know. Let me know me she begins sympathizing with those victims that are actually victimized and not some fat chick with hurt feelings. Boo-the-f*ck-hoo!

Well guess what dumbass.......Hitler would have had you in the showers right along with those people, for being a homosexual. It just goes to show the amount of ignorance that intolerant peole like him exhibit. What a LOSER!

Isn't he gay?! Does he not have any understanding of the Holocaust? Homosexuals were thrown in the gas chambers right along with the Jews - to say he "loves Hitler" not only shames him as a human being but as a luminary in the gay community as well.

Lots of people have talent doesn't mean it's a license to be a douche bag...he was calling someone ugly? The man has a face like a mask, fake eyelashes (on a dewd?)and whats up with that stache is it supposed to be sexy he can hardly grow it? Hitler hated artists, becuase he failed to succeed at art himself and couldnt get into the academy...designers?? yeah they got the gas too. Hell he went after the artists before the Jews.

It's really shocking and sad to hear such horrible comments come out of the mouth of such a brilliant man. Apparently Dior has been wanting to fire him for a while because he's been on some downward spiral. I actually think he could have gotten away with the first incident since he denied it and it was all hearsay. He was insisting he hadn't said anything anti-semitic but that video was seriously damning. And brutal. It's hard for him to deny that it's him because he looks so distinct (and bizarre). Natalie's comments are kind of uppity but I don't blame her for being offended. The "gassed" comment was really heinous. Not sure that Galliano will ever recover from this.

Excellent call, Natalie. This guy needs to be plucked from anything remotely resembling society and forgotten about.

I saw the side-by-side photos and thought they were announcing V For Vendetta 2. No?
