Over the weekend fashion designer John Galliano was accused of making threatening racist and anti-semitic remarks at a Paris bar. Fellow designer Patricia Field posted a public message defending her friend and was quoted by Women's Wear Daily as saying, "People in fashion all they do is go and see John Galliano theater every season. That's what he gives them. To me, this was the same except it wasn't in a theater or in a movie. John lives in theater. It's theater. It's farce." No word on whether she caught his Oscar-worthy performance in the above video allegedly shot last year at the same bar. Meanwhile, Christian Dior gave Galliano his walking papers.
