It's like John Galliano all over again!

A French court has found Jean-Paul Guerlain guilty of making racist comments during a 2010 interview on French TV.

As punishment for saying he "worked like a n****r" the 75 year old perfumer has been ordered to pay 6,000 euros or $7,960. In addition to the fine, he also has to pay Movement Against Racism and for Friendship, SOS Racism Association, and French Representative Council of Black Associations $5,370 EACH.

During the trial Guerlain told the court he is "from another generation" and it was "a common expression at the time". While he regrets his decision, he still insists he was being anything but racist.

Do U think that's a far punishment???
