France revoked John Galliano's Legion of Honor last week, nearly a year and a half after after the designer was dismissed from his creative director role at Dior for making anti-semitic remarks. Investigative reporter Conan O'Brien tried to dig a little deeper but was unable to reach Galliano himself. He turned instead to John's brother Joe Galliano.
