John Galliano guilty of anti-Semitism

Paris - A French court on Thursday handed British fashion designer John Galliano a suspended fine of €6 000 after finding him guilty of hurling anti-Semitic and racist slurs at patrons of a Paris bar.

The Paris court found Galliano guilty of calling a woman a "dirty Jewish face" and her boyfriend a "fucking Asian bastard" in a case that ended his glittering career as creative director of Dior.

The maximum penalty he had faced for public insults of a racist nature was a prison term of six months and a fine of €22 500.

Galliano was charged over two separate drunken outbursts at La Perle, a bar in the historic Jewish quarter of Le Marais.

Dior sacked him in February after a mobile phone video emerged of him drunkenly telling another group of patrons at La Perle last year: "I love Hitler."

A broken Galliano had told his one-day trial in June that he couldn't recall what he'd said, and pleaded a triple addiction to alcohol, sleeping pills and valium.

*John Galliano was found guilty, but is his punishment fair? Have your say here.
