We were all wondering what would happen after the shocking news about John Galliano’s racist rant was made public… especially when one of the most high profile faces of Dior was actually jewish herself.

Natalie Portman made a stand at this year’s Oscars, choosing to wear Rodarte rather than Dior after the video of Galliano’s anti-semitic rant was put all over the web (as she was originally supposed to wear the designer as she’s currently the face of Miss Dior Cherie). Well, now Portman has made a statement and it’s about a damning as being suspended from his position at Dior!

The 29-year-old Oscar winner said in a statement.: “I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”

Things aren’t looking good for Mr Galliano.
