Fashion designer John Galliano denied accusations of anti-Semitism and racism that cost him his job, but he also apologized for his behavior and "personal failure." "I must take responsibility for the circumstances in which I find myself," Galliano said in a public statement issued Wednesday, adding that he is "seeking help." The fashion house Dior announced Tuesday that it was firing its star creator after a video surfaced this week showing Galliano praising Hitler, and a second complaint of anti-Semitism was filed against him regarding events that took place last October.
