Apr 15, 2011 | 7:30am EDT

The flamboyant couturier was arrested by cops in Paris, France in February (11) over allegations he hurled anti-Semitic remarks at a couple during a night out.

He was later fired as head designer for Christian Dior after video footage emerged in which he could allegedly be heard praising Adolf Hitler, and he's currently at the centre of a French police probe over the scandal.

Galliano's woes have now worsened - it emerged on Friday (15Apr11) that the board of his John Galliano label, largely made up of Christian Dior executives, have fired him from his role as creative director.
