On Feb. 28, 2011, just four days after news of John Galliano's drunken, anti-Semitic outburst at a bar in Paris, he was summoned to a police station in the city to face his accusers.

On Mar. 1, after a video of Galliano saying "I love Hitler," in a separate incident surfaced, Dior fired the designer outright. And on Mar. 4, the brand's Fall 2011 show — Galliano's last — went on as scheduled. But instead of the designer taking a bow, the workers in his atelier did.
