OPINION – John Galliano’s antisemitic tirade should never be forgotten but it is time to forgive him

Galliano has seemingly never adjusted his eye. A long-fêted wunderkind, the then creative director of Dior, his life in the bubble was indelibly punctured by his appalling behaviour over a few fateful nights at Le Pearl, a bar in the Marais, where his addled antisemitic abuse included saying he loved Hitler, and that the two women’s (who were not Jewish) forefathers would be gassed. It’s reassuring, given the current state of antisemitism, that his words cut with as much horror as they did when the video first went viral in 2011.
