VIDEO: John Galliano's Racist Rant at La Perle Caught on Camera

The UK's Sun has obtained this video, recorded at La Perle, wherein Christian Dior creative director John Galliano spews anti-Semitic remarks at a couple at the adjoining table. The moment was captured by a friend of the couple. In it, Galliano is seen slurring his words, but clearly stating: "I love Hitler" and "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed." Last week, Dior suspended Galliano over his arrest at the Paris bar where police reports allege the designer assaulted a couple and made anti-Semitic remarks.

UPDATE: Looks like last week's altercation at La Perle was not the first time Galliano's spewed anti-Semitic rhetoric. As a commentator points out, the Sun story indicates this video was not taken at last week's altercation/incident, but in a separate incident where Galliano freely declared, "I love Hitler."
