PARIS (AP) -- France's Christian Dior says it is firing famed fashion designer John Galliano after an online video emerged that showed him praising Adolf Hitler.
The fashion house said Tuesday that Galliano has been immediately laid off and the process of firing him has begun.
Last week, Dior suspended Galliano as its creative director pending an investigation into an alleged anti-Semitic incident at a Paris cafe last week.
