Fashion designer John Galliano was fired from his own designer label over accusations of anti-Semitism and racism.

Galliano, who was fired on March 1 as chief designer at Christian Dior, was dumped from the label that bears his name but is 91 percent owned by Dior, Women’s Wear Daily reported April 15.

A video surfaced in February showing Galliano praising Hitler following accusations that he accosted a couple at a Paris bar, and a second complaint of anti-Semitism was filed against him regarding events that took place at the same bar last October.

Paris prosecutors announced that Galliano would be tried for “public injury toward individuals due to their origin, their religious affiliation,” according to a statement.

Galliano could face up to six months in prison and a $31,000 fine for hate and anti-Semitic speech after allegedly spewing racist invective against a Jewish and Asian couple at the La Perle bar in February.
