Voilà John Galliano:
Very bad taste, no doubt. He is obviously drunk. It is perfectly condign that he lose his job and find himself unwelcome among attractive people. The ritual exile to the Elba of rehab is a fitting public humiliation. I am glad Europe and the fashion world still have the decency to be offended.
But the idea that he will stand trial--and face prison charges--for this is grotesque. Is the United States the only country left in the world that gives a toss about freedom of speech?
