perfumer-jean-paul-guerlain-fined-for-racist-comments.jpg

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???

Volleyball Team Fined For Anti-Gay Fans

Brazilian volleyball team Cruzeiro is being fined after its fans chanted homophobic taunts at the other team, which had a gay player, during a match.

The team will have to pay $30,000 because of approximately 3,000 fans’ homophobic chant directed at a player named Michael, who at the time was in the closet.

Michael came out soon after the game. As a show of support, his team wore pink shirts while warming up for a playoff game!

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on those fans. Seriously… WTF.
