John Galliano: I'm not a racist

Disgraced fashion designer John Galliano, who was fired from his job at French fashion house Christian Dior after a anti-Semitic rant, says he is not a racist and has spent the past few years trying to atone for his words and actions. In what is described as his first interview since the events in 2011, he told Vanity Fair magazine about his drinking and drug use leading up to his angry encounter with customers in a cafe in Paris. Saying quote: "It's the worst thing I have said in my life, but I didn't mean it. I have been trying to find out why that anger was directed at this race." Despite his conviction for his remarks and being shunned by many in the fashion world, the 52-year-old said although it may sound bizarre he is grateful for what happened. After time in rehab - Galliano worked with New York-based fashion designer Oscar de la Renta for several weeks earlier this year. The latest issue of Vanity Fair will be available on newsstands on June 6th.
