Galliano’s victim defends the designerMarch 12th, 2011 - 6:32 am ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, March 12 (IANS) A man, who was allegedly insulted by John Galliano, has spoken out in defence of the designer, saying he doesn’t deserve to have his career destroyed.
Galliano was dismissed as creative director for couture house Christian Dior following allegations he hurled anti-Semitic abuse at two strangers in Paris last month.
Philippe Virgitti, who filed a police complaint along with friend Geraldine Bloch, has dismissed the matter as a “simple bar dispute”, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“For me it was a simple bar dispute. John Galliano does not deserve this. I do not want him to be destroyed like this,” he said.
“I would like Mr Galliano to benefit from this unhappy story by drinking a little less and getting back to making the dresses and shows that he did so well.”
