Diane von Furstenberg, Jean Paul Gaultier Speak Out on the Galliano Scandal

>> Since the John Galliano scandal erupted two weeks ago, plenty of designers have had their say on the matter; in the past couple of days, two more have weighed in.

"As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor," Diane von Furstenberg said on today's Gayle King Show, "I find what he said was absolutely unacceptable. Having said that, I think he was provoked and he was clearly not in a normal state." When asked what she thought about Dior firing Galliano, she replied: "That's not for me to say. I mean, it is an unacceptable comment."

And backstage after his show Saturday, Jean Paul Gaultier said: "It's sad, because he was an enormous talent. Everything he has done has not revealed someone who is racist — quite to the contrary. With recordings, people can be made to say things that they did not say. They pronounce some words, but what is the context? The person [speaking to Galliano in the video] seems very assured, knowing very well what she is doing." He added that he hoped Galliano would return to fashion and "find an inner peace."
