The Schmooze

Galliano Gets Himself a Jewish Lawyer

It’s not like lawyers had such a sterling reputation to begin with, but apparently the Shmooze isn’t alone in its surprise that John Galliano will be defended in court by a Jewish attorney.

“Some people call me anonymously, swear at me,” Stephane Zerbib [tells][1] Israel’s Ynet News.

Though surely upsetting, those phone calls aren’t entirely surprising, given Galliano’s now world-famous anti-Semitic rant, which got him fired from Christian Dior last week. After initial reports of a Jew-baiting tirade at a Parisian cafe, a video of a separate incident went viral online in which Dior announced, “I love Hitler,” and taunted onlookers with comments about their Jewish relatives being “f—ing gassed.”
