John Galliano - Petition launched against John Galliano

A petition has been launched to stop John Galliano teaching.

The disgraced fashion designer - who was forced out of his role as creative director for Christian Dior after footage of him making racist and anti-Semitic comments emerged online - is set to lead a three-day master class at the prestigious Parsons The New School for Design in New York, but a vote to ban him from appearing has been launched.

The petition currently has over 250 signatures, and was created anonymously.

It reads: ''It doesn't matter if it's for three months or three days, hiring someone who has made such horrific comments shows that the school values Galliano over their entire Jewish student body.

''It shows they value him over their students' respect, peace of mind, and heritage. It is disgraceful to hire someone who has made such inhumane comments.''

John's session will reportedly be called 'Show Me Emotion'. The three-day workshop is due to show pupils how feelings can be used in fashion design and will guide them to their full potential.

College dean Simon Collins will also take part, joining in on the last day of critique.
