Annoying Jews and/or Asians Disturb Fashion Genius

There are conflicting accounts of the incident that IS ROCKING PARIS and MY WORLD right now, in which Dior's John Galliano tussled with a lady with an ugly handbag and her Jewish and/or Asian friend. (Some reports say he said "anti-Semitic things" (though no one will say what!) and other reports say he called them "Asian." Youch, harsh language, I guess?) The police arrived, and he was released this morning. How could ugly people in Paris get in the way of the designer of Dior? I hope they're happy that he's been "suspended" from his job. I smell a plot, as in, there's always someone younger coming down the stairs who'll get ugly Jewish and/or Asian people to get you in trouble.

HE CAN BARELY CONTAIN HIMSELF SUCH THAT HE FEELS HE NEEDS TO CONTAIN HIMSELF MORE. (Oops, eesh, sorries!)

how come nobody got called a pirate. also lol: “You’re ugly and you’re fucking bag is ugly too.” I'm almost certain galliano would've spelled it exactly this way were it a twitter fight.

I'm going to start saying that to people on the subway, just for fun.

"Tu es laide et ton putain de sac est laid aussi." Everything really is better in French, isn't it? And I can just picture Mlle. Galliano dressed as a hobo-buccaneer, slurring and spitting this retort as champagne sloshes from his glass… (swoon)

Can that be translated as "your whore of a bag is ugly too"? In any case, "your whore of a [inanimate noun]" is definitely a phrase I need to start using!

Wouldn't one have to put some sort of derogatory adjective in front of "Asian" before it could be construed as a slur? Or does one judge by tone?

I can only speak from the experience of having a Jew and an Asian for a business partner. (BUT LET'S JUST SAY I'M TEAM GALLIANO.)

The bag, on the other hand, should totally press charges.

@C_W: If it were Dooney and Bourke, no jury would convict.

Also, um. HI. You gave us the allover print denim saddle bag. Reeeelax.

Mary HK Choi (#1,469)

i think it goes, "REALLY Asian!!!!!" Or is it Haitian?

I'm really digging the musculature on display in that photo.

Tavi and BryanBoy are at it again!

"The man, perhaps not recognizing the famous designer, rebuffed him and said, 'You’re ugly, you’re disgusting, move away from here.'" I would only say that if I recognized that it was Galliano.
