Christophe Beaugrand responds to homophobic messages
TF1 unveiled some excerpts from 12 strokes of love to keep the public waiting. This Friday, February 10, Christophe Beaugrand received strong attacks because of a passage of the show where we see him kissing Ghislain Gerin.
The host of ninjawarrior, who has always fought against homophobia, is appalled to see that some netizens want to boycott the show by Jean-Luc Reichmann.
Faced with the controversy, Christophe Beaugrand addressed the companion of Nathalie Lecoultre. “My Jean-Luc Reichmann, I read messages saying that we must boycott tonight’s show because we are invited, that TF1 should not show 2 men kissing because ‘children are watching’”, he wrote on Twitter. And added: “Thank you Jean-Luc for allowing our kisses to advance mentalities“.
The former presenter Secret Story shared a series of filthy messages from homophobic Internet users. “You are crazy ?“, he replied in the face of a malicious tweet.
For the moment, Jean-Luc Reichmann has not responded to this wave of hatred against Christophe Beaugrand… It is important to remember that the law punishes insults, discrimination and homophobic threats. These can be punishable by 1 year in prison and a fine of €45,000.
