Dior Fires Galliano

Dior officially fired John Galliano today.

"I condemn most firmly the statements made by John Galliano, which are a total contradiction with the essential values that have always been defended by the House of Christian Dior," Dior's president and chief executive, Sidney Toledano, said in a statement.

The house first suspended Galliano last week after two women told police that he hurled anti-Semitic slurs at them, which the designer vehemently denied. Then this week, a video from 2010 surfaced, showing Galliano making anti-Semitic remarks to two other women, saying, "People like you ought to be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers would all be f***ing gassed. I love Hitler."

Here's the footage of the 2010 rant.

UPDATE: Galliano is reportedly heading to rehab.
