IMO, The problem is that it became such a big thing
of the way Dior handled things. They basically proclaimed him a racist in their official statement and by firing him and that's why everyone automatically associates John Galliano with racism. People aren't educated enough in fashion to know about what Hugo Boss or whoever did years ago but the Galliano thing is recent and thanks to the internet stories like that become huge and widely known. And of course tabloids wouldn't report "John Galliano made racist remarks but it might have been because he has a mental illness and was drunk". It was just "Galliano is a racist, period". And as sad as it is, tons of people actually believe tabloid stories or at least don't question them so it doesn't matter what the reason for his outburst was, for the next few years he'll just be the anti-semitic designer to most people.
