French President Francois Hollande reportedly has stripped fashion designer John Galliano of his Legion of Honor medal because of anti-Semitic behavior.

The newspaper Le Point, among other French media, reported that a presidential decree published on France’s official journal said Galliano may no longer wear the medal -- France’s highest honor – which he received in 2009.

Last year Galliano, a British citizen, lost his job as design director at Dior after he was filmed making anti-Semitic statements.
