LVMH owned perfume house Guerlain is being sued by anti-racism groups after Jean-Paul Guerlain dropped the n-bomb on TV.

During the French state TV interview, Guerlain was asked about his new fragrance Samsara, to which he replied: "I worked like a n****r. I don't know if n*****s have always worked like that, but anyway."

Because of Jean-Paul's insensitive comments, Al Sharpton and other US civil rights activists hope to meet with French president Nicolas Sarkozy to discuss what the perfumier said.
