Adam Lambert Wants Everyone To Forgive Galliano

adam-lambert-defends-john-galliano.jpg

Where has he been for the past few months!?

Adam Lambert thinks everyone should forgive John Galliano for his anti-semitic comments because the designer makes nice clothes and that's coming from someone who's Jewish.

The American Idol alum tweeted on Wednesday night, which by the way was Rosh Hashanah:

Galliano: BRILLIANT designer screwed up and said offensive things.When can we forgive him and move on? LOVE his clothes. And I'm a born Jew!

@adamlambert So making gorgeous clothes makes it okay for him to be an asshole? I don't get it.

not at all… But just cuz he's (was) an asshole, that means I can't wear his gorgeous clothes? #policalcorrectnessquestions

No one's stopping you Glambert.

If you wanna wear stuff he hasn't designed since being fired from Dior or his own line go ahead.

John Galliano Found GUILTY

john-galliano-guilty-of-anti-semitic-slurs-no-jail-time.jpg

The verdict is in!

A Paris court found John Galliano guilty of "public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity" on Thursday.

The designer was facing up to 6 months in jail, but because of his apologies to the victims the court gave him a fairly lenient sentence of a suspended $8,400 fine.

John isn't required to pay the fine, but it will still be on his criminal record.

The court also ordered him to pay $23,200 in court fees and give each victim a "symbolic" Euro in damages.

Galliano wasn't in court for the verdict, but his lawyer says he's relieved.

Thoughts???

After hours of testimony, John Galliano will have to wait another 3 months to learn his fate for hurling anti-semitic slurs.

The trial was only supposed to last the afternoon, but dragged on all the way past 10pm!!!

When court was finally adjourned the three judges said they will reconvene on September 8th with their verdict.

Galliano's New Defense: Addicted To Painkillers

john-galliano-to-testify-at-trial-claims-addiction-not-racist.jpg

John Galliano is set to go on trial for his anti-semitic rants back in March and his new lawyer is ready to duke it out with the prosecutors.

Aurelien Hamelle, who took over for Stephane Zerbib after being fired last month, says his client WILL testify his addiction to booze and pills are responsible for the hateful words.

Hamelle claims Galliano started hitting the bottle and popping Valium like "candy" to cope with the pressures of making money for Dior and managing his own line.

His lawyer continues:

"It's clear that John Galliano was ill when this happened. He had a triple addiction to alcohol, benzodiazepine (Valium) and sleeping pills. The combined effect of these drugs left him in a state of complete and utter abandon…When he was in that state he had no way of knowing or remembering what he said. Every witness at the cafe has said he was in an abnormal condition."

Inneresting defense, but is it strong enough?

Do U think Galliano's "addiction" defense will keep him out of jail???

Galliano's Accuser Doesn't Think He's Racist

john-galliano-releases-a-statement-denies-everything__opt1.jpg

It's been 2 weeks since John Galliano was arrested for his anti-Semitic remarks and in a strange twist his accuser is coming to his defense!

Philipe Virgitti told the Times:

"For me it was a simple bar dispute. We were having a beer when he sat beside us. He got aggressive, turned to my friend and said 'Your voice is annoying me, you're speaking too loudly'."

When asked about the words Galliano hurled at them, Virgitti admitted he didn't think the designer meant them, adding:

"I don't think he is racist or anti-Semitic. I just think he's very ill. John Galliano does not deserve this. I would like Mr Galliano to benefit from this unhappy story by drinking a little less and getting back to making the dresses and shows that he did so well."

Inneresting.

What do U think? Is Galliano…
