I am sorry that this guy was addicted to drugs and drink but does that excuse whatever he does, as long as he says: I am sorry and goes into rehab. Would anyone care much, if he were a day laborer accused of the same behavior? The bankers and heads of Wall street firms who ruined much of the world’s economies… how many of them are in jail?
Mostly, I am just tired of rich and/or famous racists and sex criminals getting by with fewer penalties that poor and unknown racists and sex criminals. End of rant.
Did you launch a racist, antisemitic rant? I can’t remember, Galliano tells French court
The British designer John Galliano told a Paris court he remembered nothing of an alleged antisemitic, racist rant in a bar because of his triple addiction to alcohol, valium and sleeping pills.
He went into rehab at the end of February after he was arrested by police following the alleged bar altercation. He said his reasons for rehab were various: “I started having panic attacks, I couldn’t go to work unless I had taken some valium.”
