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.

Ironic, Galliano is gay and this is what his "hero" did to people like him:

Natalie Portman is such a hypocrite.While I agree that anyone who identifies with Hitler is a complete sociopath, please keep in mind that this is the same Natalie Portman who was one of the biggest supporters of Roman Polanski. So to recap, drugging and forcibly butt f#$king a 13-year old girl? No big deal. Saying you like Hitler? Well, clutch my pearls. To condemn a drunk crazy who was talking out of his a$s while at the same time condemning others for wanting a sexual predator brought to justice is just bad form.

#86. LoL

#90. I agree, it seems insulting Jewish people is more offensive than any other ethnic group. Also in agreeance w/ the holidays as well as why do we only acknowledge Spanish language - if we're gonna adopt another language we should adopt all immigrant languages...except Texas, LoL. Finally, Think About It, pass the MF-ing joint and put all your ones (well Charlie only deals with high priced hookers and porn stars - although I don't see the worth (preposition, noun, or even idiom(sp) in a g-string or two - I got a $20 to spare :)

Whomever made the V for Vendetta comments...priceless! Would love a sequel/prequel...don't fluck it up tho!

On Topic: I say we all have the right to FREEdom of speech, however, be willing to PAY the price for it!!! If this, John Galliano, is homosexual (some comments already mention, but in case he doesn't dare read negative feedback - narcissism), someone close should clue him in that he'd probably be gassed ahead of some Jews.

Sry all, for the long rant...I'm flucked up, but coherent (Charlie's angels style - which is what his porn women family should be called...I digress).

P. S. If I'm gonna rant, might as well say also how much the hypocrite she presents herself to be. One can't publicly embrace a child molester/rapist (Roman Polanski-sp?) and then scold John Galliano b/c he exercised his freedom of speech. I'm just saying, one of those is not a heinous, criminal act...

RANT OVAH!

This video says a lot about Galliano. He is drunkenly ugly, elitist and racist....poor showing. What timing! Natalie ain't havin' it, very bad for post Oscar Dior business. Looking forward to the consequences he will face.

Why is everyone conveniently ignoring the FACT that this woman signed a petition for a child rapist and pedophile to get released?

So if we go by logic, this guy gets fired because he gives Dior a bad name by supporting Hitler, then it wouldn't it also make sense for her to get fired as well because she supports child rape?

That in fact would be poetic justice, but it doesn't work like that.

Haha. I'm trying to imagine what it would feel like to be called "ugly" by somebody who looks a Court Jester.

Natalie had every right to comment on this, I mean she is the spokeswoman for Dior's perfume and proudly Jewish. Shame on him, that is totally disgusting. I love Natalie, I adore her so much.

Yes, people are allowed to say what they want, but they also have to remember that there are consequences. No one is gonna want to employ people who make such ugly comments in public. People keep saying "free speech"...it is not like he was arrested for saying this, just fired!

Natalie has every right to say that she would not work with such a person. I don't blame her!
