It seems like sometimes saying sorry and acting contrite is just not enough.

John Galliano has been working hard to put his anti-Semitic rant behind him, but some aren’t ready to forgive him.

The designer was all set to dress Moran Mazor, a Eurovision contestant from Israel, after her stylist "reached out to several international designers among them John Galliano. Fortunately, he accepted the challenge of designing a dress."

But once the Israel Broadcasting Authority, who sponsors Israel's participation and broadcasts the show, got wind of the deal, they banned her from wearing his designs.

The IBA's Yoav Ginai fired off a memo to Moran's agent, saying:

Filed under: Joan RiversBookz

Joan Rivers is no stranger to controversy, so that just means she's not afraid to smack it down as soon as it comes her way.

In case you missed it, the comedian handcuffed herself to a shopping cart while screaming into a bullhorn at an El Lay Costco on Tuesday. She was protesting the country's fifth largest retailer because it decided to ban her newest book, I Hate Everything … Starting with Me.

During the publicity stunt, Rivers compared the company's actions to those of the Nazis by telling news outlets:

Jewish People Not Responsible for Jesus' Death, Says Pope In New Book

Filed under: Etc.

Wow. Finally looks like something's come up that'll stir up more conversation than Charlie Sheen's every move!

In excerpts from his upcoming book Jesus of Nazareth-Part II, Pope Benedict XVI "explains biblically and theologically why there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus' death."

Here's what American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants' Elan Steinberg had to say about it:

"Holocaust survivors know only too well how the centuries-long charge of 'Christ killer' against the Jews created a poisonous climate of hate that was the foundation of anti-Semitic persecution whose ultimate expression was realized in the Holocaust."

And here's what Anti-Defamation League national director Abraham H. Foxman had to say about it:

"[That Benedict is a theologian makes] this statement from the Holy See that much more significant for now and for future generations."

Thoughts???
