Prosecutors in France last week ordered famed fashion designer John Galliano to stand trial on charges of making "public insults based on the origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity" against three people. On Monday, a video surfaced in which Galliano said, "I love Hitler," which prompted the fashion house Christian Dior to fire him as creative director, after his 14 years with the company. Last month, he was reportedly detained in a drunken state and questioned about accusations that he made anti-Semitic comments to a couple in a cafe in the French capital. Through his lawyers, Galliano apologized for his conduct. "Anti-Semitism and racism have no part in our society," he said in a statement.
