France's Christian Dior says it is firing famed fashion designer John Galliano after an online video emerged that showed him praising Adolf Hitler. Christian Dior said Tuesday, March 1, 2011, that Galliano has been immediately laid off, just days after he was suspended as its creative director pending an investigation into an alleged anti-Semitic incident in a Paris cafe last week.

    Just in time for Fashion Week: John Galliano was found guilty by a French court on Thursday for the anti-Semitic tirade that cost him his job as chief designer at Dior. Galliano, who in two separate incidents said “I love Hitler” and called a woman a “dirty Jew,” had faced up to six months in prison, but was only given a suspended fine of 6,000 euros, or about $8,400. He has said he cannot remember the incidents because of his “triple addiction” to alcohol, Valium, and sleeping pills.
