Christian Dior Has Fired John Galliano


>> Christian Dior
has fired John Galliano, effective immediately. In a brief statement, Dior said that because of the "odious behavior" Galliano showed in the video circulated yesterday, Dior has sidelined him and initiated proceedings to fire him.

Sidney Toledano, Dior's president and CEO, added, “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.”

A person close to the matter had said yesterday that Dior was waiting for the police investigation to conclude before it makes any definitive decision about Galliano's future at the brand, but added that it was trying to verify the authenticity of yesterday's video, and if authenticated, the maison would have "little option" but to dismiss Galliano.
