CELEBRITIES TWEET ABOUT GALLIANO: After Natalie Portman condemned John Galliano for uttering anti-Semitic slurs in a video released on Monday, celebrities ranging from Daphne Guinness to Steve Martin took to Twitter to air their thoughts on the now-fired Dior designer. Guinness shared with some 7,800 followers that “it is mysterious. As what little I know of John he is not racist, sensitive and has been having a struggle.” Bound by the limit of 140 characters that Twitter allows, she later added: “John is a genius, but this is insane.”

Model-turned-actress Jaime King didn’t mince words — or spare her caps lock key — when she told her 22,722 followers that “I urge all the fashion lovers to NOT PURCHASE & BAN ALL JOHN GALLIANO clothing items due [to] his anti-Semitic remarks & utter disregard.” Nicky Hilton bid “Au Revoir Galliano for Dior” in front of her nearly 320,300 followers, while British socialite Jemima Khan referred to Libya’s political riots when she mused, “Who would have thought Galliano would go before Gadhafi? Wonder if Dior will have free elections?” Martin stepped into the fashion fray with his breaking news alert to 675,000-plus followers: “Charlie Sheen and John Galliano to date. [Mel] Gibson irked.”
