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.

#63 "Chill out JEWS! He was probably kidding when he said he loved Hitler. People are such cry babies these days. "

1. You're a moron.
2. Kidding about gassing people a la the Nazi regime is in no way funny.
3. This is not only offensive to Jews. This is offensive to anyone with a shred of human decency and even just a minimal knowledge of the atrocities the Jews were subjected to by the Nazis.

If you think this sort of behavior is excusable on any level, you are one damaged motherf*cker.

This guy may have lots of talent as a designer, but he has become like many other celebrities; fame has gone to his head and he probably has some type of mental illness too. Who in their right mind would say such things to strangers ? You have to be nuts. Also, he is trying too hard to look like Dali. Why not be your own person, dude ?

Natalie try to improve your acting honey That will help you more
As for Galliano although i dont share his opinion i have to say this I listen daily comments in talk shows and news ironic to Christ, calling the Pope rapist, making fun of Christians and their beliefs and i say ok they have a right to their opinion although i disagree. The same rule applies here Mr Galliano has every right to his opinion, it has nothing to do with his job
and although i disagree i give him the right to say it
I find it bias when people's words been taken out of context during an arguement - same goes to Gibson- and then crucified for them I didn't see the same reaction to Bill Maher for the things he said in his show and during a calm talk as well
Enough with the one sided political correctness people
To conclude i have nothing against Jews or any other religion But i dont like people ganging up and targeting people for personal beliefs or things they said in rage

I suspect that MOST non-jews in Hollywood dislike jews and I suspect they didn't start out that way. I suspect they became that way after working with the jews in Hollywood. There is something sinister going on in LaLa land!!

I would like to know if she's shocked and disgusted with the way Israel is treating Palestinians right now ????
She's an idiot and she should shut up her big mouth. She's pretty much delusional is she thinks her opinion matters in this world !

This ignorant ass would never of even made it to a concentration camp in Hiltler's Germany. He would have been summarily executed.

And whoever said Natalie doesn't look Jewish... Well she is. her great-grandparents were murdered at Auschwitz, just like this worthless little piece of sh*t would have been had he lived in Hitler's Germany.

I guess nobody every explained to this ignorant f*ck that Hitler had no love for opinionated homosexual fashion designers.

He obviously has an intense and deep hatred for Jews. In the fashion industry, this sentiment seems like the rule and not the exception, and the inclusion of alcohol brings out extreme behavior. It's my contention that most Christians and Muslims working in fashion, media and Hollywood feel the same way Galliano does, but dont get too drunk to admit it publicly.
