Quick primer on the latest news from the John Galliano front: He issued an apology in which he denied the accusations that he'd attacked a woman with anti-Semitic slurs, but also said he took responsibility for the situation. Rumor has it that he's now in a rehab center in Arizona. Meanwhile, Pat Field issued a statement supporting him, then added in a follow-up message, "Just for the record, I don't like Hitler and I like Jewish people as I like all people from everywhere."
