Italian Vogue‘s Franca Sozzani Says Christian Dior Should Re-Hire John Galliano

Never fearful of controversy, Italian Vogue editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani just revealed that she thinks disgraced former-Dior creative director John Galliano should… get re-hired. Really? According to The Daily Beast:

“Hire back John Galliano,” [Sozzani] said with a little smile. She knew this might get her in trouble. After all, Galliano was fired after being caught on camera making anti-Semitic remarks at a bar and on Thursday was fined €6,000 (more than $8,000) by a French court. “Look,” she went on, “I understand their point of view. I understand they couldn’t just say, ‘Bad boy! We forgive you! Come back!’ But it’s really a pity. And I will never believe he believed what he said. I think he was drunk and alone in a bar. When people go crazy, they go crazy. It’s a human case, it’s not political or religious. He didn’t kill anyone!”

Sozzani has previously said that it’s “a shame” to lose a talent like John Galliano, but how do you feel?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.
