They deserve each other
It'a been 15 years since I've thought of (thw real) Galliano.
Oh shit, we actually have to write about something vaguely interesting?!
I mean really, there isn't another John Galliano
and for them to form a criminal gang, smashing down doors to banks, steeling their money and being anti-semitic.
and they would often go on about how he was a good example of how well we could all do/how good the school do.
But they all have their fatal flaws
I kind of feel sorry for him.... kind of
also, I doubt he is even a massive anti-semite, he was probably just saying "controversial" things to provoke a reaction, which in a way sorta makes him an even bigger prick.
I find that people like him think that just because of the status they are allowed to behave and say whatever they want without any consequence. He was drunk at the time so I doubt he even thought as far as saying something to get a reaction, I think he is just a nasty little man who just happens to be talented.
you can be contraversial in a more acceptable way than being racist and abusing people whose ancestors very possibly did die in the holocaust o_O
This is all just publicity for him. I'm pretty sure he'll be okay ;)
what has Galliano done for you to claim he's a genius?
I'm not trying to be dismissive or anything, like I said, I know as much about fashion as I do about opera or ballet, ie none, but I'd be interested to see why he's such a big figure.
What's your chosen area of expertise? I'll try a metaphor
Obviously not a straightforward question...
I just thought if you had a link to an article about his career or anything, I'd be interested to read it.
*Resisting the urge to post something dumb like 'But darling, he REVOLUTIONIZED halternecks!*
Having said that - I know Mourniho is good, because he manages teams and they win stuff. Surely an analogy for Galliano would have to be an artist or something? idk
'cos what he does is goes to fashion houses that are underachieving and languishing in the lower divisions and turns them into Champions League winners
He's probably more of a Brian Clough though in truth
It's been a whole year since McQueen popped his clogs.
Why's everyone in this thread defending him? Cos he made some nice clothes?
more that we've all said/done ridiculously dumb things while smashed out of our boxes
But, y'know, each to their own.
Either he's secretly an obnoxious racist or, more likely, he got himself so out of control he was saying any shit that came to mind in order to cause controversy. Either way he's brought everything on himself and the fact he can't even take responsibility and continues to deny it/threaten to sue people in the face of the evidence suggests he's a self-entitled prick.
At the same time obviously he's a very talented guy, his opinions have absolutely no bearing on his ability to design clothes and he'd be a loss to the fashion industry. But I find the moral equivalence where he gets defended and someone like Mel Gibson gets condemned to be completely ridiculous - whether he's a talented designer and whether he's a decent human being are two entirely unrelated questions and it's a silly but fairly normal facet of human nature (not just here but in life in general, especially in football for some reason) how people find it hard to separate those and feel they have to either defend the personality 'cos they're defending the talent or denigrate the talent because they don't like the personality and can't seem to process that people can be talented but utter cunts.
It's just a shame he's thrown his career by being such an utter twat as to drunkenly verbally abuse a bunch of people
Meantime, people who actually order torture and preach hatred buy another half dozen helicopter gunships and launch a few drone missile strikes and sit astride their marvellous careers
drunk, possibly being ironic, possible parallels with this recent .
God knows what Galliano was thinking, but equally, God knows if he really is antisemitic. I'm not defending what he said, which was in itself appalling, but at the same drink can do terrible, terrible things to people's brains.
i'd never even heard of john galizani before, but I don't get why loads of people are calling him a genius n ting. his clothes look shit, he smokes inside, and he's a massive anti semite.
end of thread.
