Stupor, on October 3, on the set of “Slam”. While a certain Guillaume had to find a word containing the letter G and whose definition specified that it was an “animal that lives among us”, he replied tit for tat: “Stranger?” Faced with this response as surprising as it is shocking, the host Cyril Féraud – with round eyes – swings one: “I know who you voted for in the presidential election…”
A sequence that went around the Web, some Internet users seeing primary racism and not a simple innocent slip. Following the controversy, France 3 finally reacted via press release on Twitter. “In the October 3 broadcast, a candidate gave an answer that could potentially be interpreted as violating respect for human dignity. The candidate, caught up in the mechanics of the game, did not understand that his answer could be interpreted in that Sens.” The sequence, recorded several days before its broadcast, could however have been cut during the editing.” France Télévisions and all the SLAM teams recall their attachment to the values of respect for the human person, inclusion and its fight against all forms of discrimination .” Deal done?
