It’s been two years since designer John Galliano paid the heavy price for his drunken anti-Semitic remarks at a cafe in Paris. Not only was he ousted from his role as the Creative Director at Dior, but he was also removed from being Creative Director of his own signature label as well.

But, even such harsh punishment does not seem enough to the Israeli Broadcasting Authority.

John Galliano had agreed to create an outfit for Israeli singer Moran Mazor for her upcoming performance at the world-renowned Eurovision Song Contest in May. However, the IBA has not been very forgiving of his rants against the Jewish people and have banned the singer from wearing his outfit.

The move has not gone down well with supporters of Galliano who feel he’s paid his price, done a stint of rehab and is making amends to reach out to the people whom he ranted against. Even the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish civil rights NGO, formally forgave the designer  in January this year. ADL’s national director, Abraham H. Foxman has been quoted saying,

“Mr. Galliano has worked arduously in changing his world view and dedicated a significant amount of time to researching, reading and learning about the evils of anti-Semitism and bigotry. Along his journey to recovery he met with us on numerous occasions. He has accepted full responsibility for his previous remarks and understands that hurtful comments have no place in our society.”

Do you think his punishment is fair? Or do you think the IBA should forgive, forget and move on? Tell us your opinion in the comments below.
