The The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Tuesday praised Christian Dior for firing its chief designer John Galliano following his anti-Semitic remarks at a Paris bar.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, said in a statement: "We salute and welcome Christian Dior’s decision to dismiss John Galliano. Their swift and courageous action sends a clear a clear message that this kind of anti-Semitic rhetoric is unacceptable both in the fashion world and in larger society, and that such outrageous, bigoted behavior comes with a cost. Dior’s response should serve an example for other corporations to deal with this kind of behavior from their employees. There should be zero tolerance for these kinds of statements."
