^I'm sure they would get away with it in the US.
I think anti-discrimination laws should be pretty strong in France, considering the John Galliano drama. Or maybe it's just certain types of discrimination because certain events of WWII are connected with French history.

There are several laws against discrimination yes. But come on the people at Zadig & Voltaire love Chinese people! They like them so much that part of their collections are made in China to be then sold overpriced in Europe.
It's funny, they tried to make people fancy a place of intimacy destined to elite guests but their declarations only showed their lack of subtilty. I mean who would go to anything Z&V-related when looking for discretion and sophistication?

That guy is so stupid, he's obviously gonna get his a** fired, no respectful brand would allow such a bigot to be part of their team.

The brand John Galliano is owned for the most part by the company that owns Dior, LVMH.
