You might think that antisemitism was a relic of the 20th century, something of the past, something that humans had learnt from, to avoid.

Yet you would be wrong, outbursts of antisemitism in the 21st century are becoming more common, with the passage of time, Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen are just two notable examples.

Now John Galliano, the famous designer, has been indulging in his own brand of antisemitism, according to AP:

“PARIS (AP) — Officials say Dior designer John Galliano was briefly detained after a spat in a Paris restaurant.

An official with the Paris prosecutor’s office says a couple in the restaurant accused Galliano of making anti-Semitic insults. A police official said Friday that Galliano also exchanged slaps with the couple.

The flamboyant British designer was questioned and released after the Thursday night incident. Both officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing say Galliano’s blood alcohol levels were high.

The Dior fashion house would not comment on the incident. “

Update 1: As if on cue, Mel phones:

“He said he had received calls of support from fellow celebrities, including Mel Gibson. “Occasionally, you know, a giant marquee name comes through on your caller ID. And it’s like, winning,” Sheen said. “
