Natalie Portman 'Disgusted' by John Galliano's Racist Rant

Natalie Portman is speaking out against John Galliano after a video hit the web showing the Dior designer in an anti-Semitic rant.

“I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano‘s comments that surfaced today. 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. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful,” the 29-year-old Oscar winner, who’s currently the face of Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, said in a statement.

John was recently suspended from Christian Dior after a French couple accused him of hurling racist remarks at them at a cafe in Paris.

    I am glad she is taking a stand against him. The video is disgusting. He also pulled the woman’s hair that he taunted in the recent incident.

    Well, Natalie shouldn’t support rapists like Roman Polanski like she did. But I understand where she’s coming from on this.

    I remember when Natalie said that she just didn’t want to play “Jewish ” only. It’s the main reason she got her Oscar because of her connections in the industry due to her ancestry.

    Hardly, I majored in world wars and conflict. Turns out that the some of the largest gold mines in the world are located in Germany.

    And that there was a huge money/power grab made by immigrant Jews for control over those mines. Those mines were used by the ancient Vikings who became the Kings of England, France, Scotland, Wales and Ireland and it’s gold was used to create the first European currency which drove the prosperity in the Middle Ages through the Renaissance and into the 20th Century.

    People are not “evil”, that is folklore, there is a point of view, a side to every story and history is told by the victors. So who tells the side of the looser of wars? Hmmm?

    Is it “good and beautiful” when Americans use Mexicans and other immigrants as cheap labor ?

    I knew there would be a$$es like #8, 14 &15 crawling out of their holes. I am sure there will be more as JJ has become a cesspool. Was on the fence about NP, but gained a new found respect for her. I don’t recall many A-list celebs condemning Mel Gibson after his rant, quite the opposite. I admire black celebs, they usually band together and take a stand when bigots attack their community.

    Last time I checked you could make anti-semitic remarks in the US and not get arrested for it… so far all you’ve got is name calling an no facts to back up your statements.

    There is a reason that there is still antisemitism, it would greatly behoove Jews to tell ‘the other side’ of the story, the reasons they were and are persecuted. If they were to do that then the solution to end anti-semitic would become abundantly clear.

    To the Oh So Smart “Silly Girl” that has written a comment… What are you talking about? Israel using Chinese people? not letting them have children with Israelis? that’s nonsense!
    Yes, there are foreign workers in Israel, some of them Chinese, but that is ONLY because they want to come. they make more money in Israel than back at home. It is a Win-Win situation. And just for you to know – I am waitressing in Israel at the moment and my boss is about to marry a Thai woman he met here.. and trust me, she is accepted here in Israel and is treated as an equal.

    And for the anti-semitic remarks being illegal, I didn’t know is was so.. but what if it is? is that a wrong thing? should ignorant, hateful, and prejudice people speak out against others and create hate without being punished? criticism is fine and is even welcomed, however, stupid remarks like Mr. Galliano’s are just wrong and SHOULD be banned.

    I hate having to go into these types of arguments, especially on this sort of JUST-FOR-FUN website, but enough in enough.

    Of course not. Now imagine if we used them for cheap labor and forbid them to have children or sexual relations with Americans and forbid them to practice any religion including thier own.

    The Chinese slaves in Israel are not allowed to practice their own religion or convert to Judaism. They have to live separately and segregate from their Israel overlords.

    Boy, you’re just really smart, aren’t you? Why don’t you take all of your “intelligence” to another board. We’ll make it just fine here without you.

    @Silly Girl: Dear self hater-im sorry for your ignorance- and im very sorry for your own self loathing but as an Israeli and a jewish man whos father is American and catholic i have to ask you this: can you please tell me what do the state of israel has to do with her being jewish??? what do the Israeli goverment has to do with her pride of being jewish?? is the US goverment perfect? should i reflect the bad choices the US goverment made in the last decade on you being an American and for that matter on all American? and by the way didnt chip poor Chinese people built the US rail system? and what about the way the US goverment treats Mexican imagrents?? seems to me like a concern that should worrie you more…

    1. http://www.fidh.org/IMG/pdf/il1806a.pdf Slaves in Israel It’s not a win/win situation, they may not have ‘lives’ in Israel, they are there to serve and nothing more. They can’t be expected to ‘live’ in a country where they may not be themselves i.e. practice their own religion.

    2. It’s unethical unless *all* hate speech is illegal and it’s not.

    R15, you idi*t, they weren’t even Jewish. Galliano is up to 3 incidents at this point. I am sure there will be more. He called the women ugly and called the guy with them an ugly Asian. I highly doubt his bigotry is just reserved for Jews.

    Silly Girl, you certainly live up to your name. Would it behoove Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Muslims to say why they are/were persecuted? Your comments are absolutely asinine and have no bearing on this story.

    Jared, there is no alleged racist rant. It is all right there in the video you linked.
