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."
