Just when John Galliano thought he was on the verge of rehabilitation after a drunken anti-Semitic diatribe in 2011 got him arrested, an online petition is seeking to get him fired before he even teaches one class here at Parsons The New School for Design. 

Parsons had announced last week that the 52-year-old designer agreed to teach without pay a three-day fashion-design master class called “Show Me Emotion.” The school called Galliano a “living legend,” a “technical genius,” and a “master of tailoring, construction, research and thematic investigation.”
