1. Joe Galliano Reacts To His Brother's Allegedly Anti-Semitic Hat

Joe Galliano Reacts To His Brother's Allegedly Anti-Semitic Hat

They're pretty simpatico: the Jews are the chosen people, and Joe has some very choice chapeaus.


CONAN: New York City just wrapped up fashion week and one of the designers who attended was John Galliano.
If you don't know, here's a photo of Mr. Galliano.
And here's another photo of Mr. Galliano.
Well, anyway Galliano is once again involved in a controversy with the Jewish people.
Here is Galliano on the front page of "The New York Post" just a couple of days ago.
What happened is the newspaper says that Galliano was wearing a hat that Jews typically wear and that's inappropriate, especially in light of his past controversy involving anti-Semitism.
Now, we wanted to straighten this out.
We reached out to Galliano's people to get his side of the story, but the only person who responded was John Galliano's brother, Joe Galliano.
Just play along.
He's agreed -- is it really that hard, you know?
The guy has a brother, OK?
And he's agreed to talk to us right now.
No other show, just us.
So please welcome via satellite from Paris, Joe Galliano!
[Cheers and applause]
Yes, that's definitely Paris.
Can you hear me, Joe?
>> As clear as a bell, Conan.
CONAN: Now, Joe, how do you feel about the outfit your brother was wearing in "The New York Post" photo?
Does he owe Jewish people an apology?
>> Not at all.
My brethren love Jewish people.
CONAN: Given his previous comments, the outfit he was wearing was very, very provocative, don't you think?
>> That's absurd.
The Jews are God's chosen people, and he chose to dress like them.
CONAN: Yeah, but Joe, shouldn't he just stay away from that kind of thing to avoid the possibility of offending people?
>> Oh come now, Conan.
My brother's as innocent as a baby in a box full of puppies.
CONAN: All right.
Well, it's pretty clear that you and your brother -- you know what you're doing?
You're just trying to over-compensate, that's what you're doing.
You're over-compensating.
>> What are you talking about?
You're being absurd, consy-ponesy.
CONAN: It seems obvious that you and your brother are doing things to suck up to the Jewish community to try and get favor with them.
>> That's absurd.
We don't suck up to anybody, gentile or Jew.
CONAN: All right, you're done.
Please go.
You're done here.
You got to just go.
You got to leave.
>> I decide when we're done.
And we're done.
I am out of here.
CONAN: All right, goodbye.
[Cheers and applause]
CONAN: Goodbye and good riddance.
I don't want to see that guy again.
[Cheers and applause]
