Mamma Biscuit has a bone to pick with Galliano

The House of Biscuits apologizes for waiting so long to release a statement regarding John Galliano and his anti-Semitic rants in Paris recently. It has been a struggle to digest these vile and disgusting attacks brought forth by Mr. Galliano—a man who we have personally grown to love and admire creatively in fashion for the longest time. A man who has inspired Mamma Biscuit to channel her best Anna Wintour (Galliano’s strongest cheerleader) and inspired our personal style so much that I have interpreted being Mr. Galliano for Halloween in 2009, see photo below.

The Biscuit family is disgusted, disappointed and revolted by the beliefs and the behavior of John Galliano. Regardless of how creative or intelligent any human being may be, all of those gifts will inevitably fall short in the presence of discriminatory hatred—which inevitably leads to verbal or physical violence. We have no sympathy for John Galliano. We have no tolerance for anyone who harbors such beliefs; who trivializes or glorifies the Holocaust and the life of Adolph Hitler as well as the entire gamut of general anti-Semitism that seems to resurface all the time. We view all discrimination the same way—racism, homophobia, sexism, xenophobia and speciesism. We also believe that elitism, religious beliefs or economic brackets should not define and defend a hierarchy of varying levels of acceptance within this list of hate. We celebrate living in this age of technology where we are forced to take responsibility for our actions—whether it is a corrupt government or a drunk fashion designer sitting at a table—the whole world is watching!

Mamma Biscuit is deeply disappointed and may never look at the house of Dior the same way again. If the Galliano pill was hard to swallow, we were totally baffled when Patricia Field came forward publicly to John’s defense with her stunningly stupid and ignorant attempt at using Mr. Galliano’s professional world (the fashion industry bubble) and his theatrical persona as an excuse for his behavior. So to Patricia Field, we say that this is not scripted theater about the Holocaust or the John Galliano hour—this is his TRUE self surfacing after the lubrication of too much alcohol in real time. We are surprised that a woman like Patricia Field cannot draw the parallels of discrimination being that she is an amazing and influential advocate for gay, lesbian, transgendered and bisexual rights here in New York City and especially focuses those efforts with gay youth and homelessness.

The time has come for Mr. Galliano to really apologize for his behavior and to seek enlightenment through professional counseling. If we, the public, can celebrate the diversity that his persona and sexual orientation brings to the fashion world as well as the world at large, then he shall learn how to celebrate the rich diversity that Jews bring to this world—like any other group of people whom should be valued and respected with decency, kindness and compassion—we are all human beings that yearn to be treated with these exact same values.

OK, Mamma Biscuit can now jump off her soapbox—the Pug has spoken!

    Hear, hear, Mamma Biscuit and the rest of the Biscuit family! Thank you for being strong enough to stand up for what’s right, even when it’s hard to do it and someone you admire has let you down. I feel proud to know all of you right now. :)

      Thank You Anna,

      It’s extremely hard when someone I have idolized fails tremendously. The Biscuit’s are proud to stand up for what is right regardless of who that person is or what he/she has accomplished in life. Thanks for your support—we are proud to know you too!!

    I’m going to say what we’re all thinking – the Halloween shot is hot.
    And – ahem. well spoken. I’ll continue to pray for something similarly incriminating to emerge from Karl Lagerfield, horrible man.

    • The Biscuits says:

      ;-) Thanks for the compliments Suzanne LOL I included that photo to show just how enamored I was of John Galliano. I still think he’s an incredible fashion designer—I simply dislike the human being that he is (or has become) . . . . about Karl Lagerfeld, I have such a love/hate relationship with that man. It’s tragic!

    I’m glad you finally spoke out, some rumors were surfacing that you are a racist bitch and I was getting tired of defending you!

    • The Biscuits says:

      LOL Thank you Wissam for being my public voice piece and putting an end to these vicious rumors LOLOL
      Mamma Biscuit is free of discrimination, well, actually she discriminates against anyone who doesn’t have any food for her, so I basically can’t make that claim

      xoxo to You, Dana and Butch

  7. Adam says:

    Very well said. It is difficult when people we admire do reprehensible things. I’ve felt it before and it stings. I hope more people pass the Biscuit message along!

  8. Well said, Mamma Biscuit! Monsters concur!

    • The Biscuits says:
