An alleged assault and anti-Semitic outburst resulted in the arrest of John Galliano on Thursday, and Christian Dior’s suspension of him as its creative director on Friday.
   The Dior house said it has a zero-tolerance policy on racism, and the fate of the suspension rests on a police investigation.
   Géraldine Bloch claims that she and her friend, of Asian origin, faced anti-Semitic and racist slurs from Galliano. Galliano has since filed a defamation suit against Bloch.
   Sleek-mag.com quotes an unnamed eyewitness who claims that the incident was started by Bloch and was not racist.
   The French press currently reports that Galliano will face his accuser in a meeting organized by the Paris public prosecutor on Monday. The aim is to get to the bottom of the Thursday night incident and to see whether there is a case to be answered.
