John Galliano has finished up his time in rehab over this past weekend and headed to more familiar territory, but not without some poking and instigating on the way.
Galliano was making his way back to reality from allegedly staying at a rehab facility in Arizona and while John Galliano was passing through LAX, a photographer/Paparazzi decided that it might be a good idea to verbally express how he felt about ‘last weeks news’. As Galliano passed by the photog, the upstanding citizen who never harasses anyone yelled out ‘f*#@king racist’ to the disgraced designer. Galliano, like someone who has just been in rehab to better himself, kept walking and didn’t respond.
Am I the only one who finds it funny that someone who makes a living off of following people around to the point of driving them crazy, is one to actually nail another to a cross for a bought of bad behavior. Seems a little hypocritical to me, but who am I but just a fashion journalist.
In other Galliano news, the husband of supermodel Kate Moss, Jamie Hince, is coming from a place of compassion for the troubled genius. Hince made this statement when speaking about Galliano:
- People have got to see reason here … You can judge [Galliano] on the stupid words [he] said—which I think were stupid, I hope that goes without saying—or you can dig a bit deeper and you can try to find out what the problem is. And I think it’s obvious that it’s alcohol. People are trying to say those are his politics. ‘I love Hitler’—that’s not political, that’s somebody in trouble.
Hince is coming from a place of human compassion when a lot of the world is so quick to judge. It is nice to see someone giving somebody the benefit of the doubt.
