Troubled designer John Galliano won’t be teaching at Parsons after all–The New School of Design in New York City has canceled its upcoming four-day workshop with the former Dior creative director.

While the decision to host Galliano caused plenty of controversy, the school isn’t saying exactly why they’ve cancelled the workshop. Here’s what we know:

Parsons said in a statement that his appearance was to include “a candid discussion about the connection between his professional work and his actions in the world at large.” It said it canceled the workshop after the two sides couldn’t reach consensus on the conditions of the conversation.

A spokesman for Galliano didn’t immediately return a request for comment Wednesday.

Galliano’s first steps toward a comeback occurred in January, when he took up residency at Oscar de la Renta’s New York studio.

      I’m no fan of John Galliano and I find racism the worst kind of hatred. However I’m just curious what else one needs to do to get forgiveness. It seems like no matter how much he apologizes, he is not to be forgiven no matter what.

      Marc Jacobs destroyed Galliano’s career. He wants to control the whole fashion world. Jacobs cruelly tortures a talented young girl. He’s been stalking her since she was 16. He fooled her with love and stole her designes. Jacobs keeps her in psycho terror. She is called Angel Barta. Read the shocking details and spread the truth, please help!
