Christian Dior issued a public statement this morning that John Galliano had been suspended from his position due to accusations that he made anti-Semitic remarks during an altercation last night in Paris. “Christian Dior has an unequivocal zero-tolerance policy regarding anti-Semitism and racism,” stated Sidney Toledano, chairman and CEO of Dior Couture. Galliano’s suspension is pending the results of the French police’s investigation of the incident.
