ADL Lauds ‘Redemption’ of Disgraced Designer Galliano

By: JTA

The Anti-Defamation League said disgraced designer John Galliano has changed his beliefs and now understands the evils of anti-Semitism.

Galliano, who lost his job as the top designer at Christian Dior after he was arrested for making anti-Semitic statements at a Paris bar, had dedicated “significant” time to understanding anti-Semitism, the ADL’s National Director Abraham Foxman said in a statement Friday.

“Mr. Galliano has worked arduously in changing his worldview and dedicated a significant amount of time to researching, reading, and learning about the evils of anti-Semitism and bigotry,” Foxman said.

Galliano blamed his behavior, which included professing his love for Adolf Hitler, on addictions to drugs and alcohol. A French court later ruled he had made “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity” in several incidents.

The ADL welcomed Galliano’s “recovery and redemption,” adding: “Along his journey to recovery he met with us on numerous occasions. He has accepted full responsibility for his previous remarks and understands that hurtful comments have no place in our society.”

The statement also welcomed an invitation by the designer Oscar de la Renta for Galliano to spend time in de la Renta’s studio.

“We wish him much success and look forward to working with him again in the near future as a spokesman against anti-Semitism, intolerance and bigotry,” the ADL said.

    Why when it hits anti semites in the pocketbook they all of a sudden see the light? Hope that I am wrong but history is on my side.

  2. But who is going to redeem Abe Foxman and the ADL for having run one of the largest, if not the largest, private spying organizations in the US which I successfully sued in the 1990s?

  3. Anya Khan says:

    His rehabilitation lasted about 5 minutes before he insulted Jews again.
