Creator of the Shauna Events agency, an agency that manages advertising contracts and the careers of French influencers, Magali Berdah held a press conference on Wednesday. Not to discuss his remarks, which have gone viral, on the show Further investigation, but to denounce the practices of rapper Booba, whom she accuses of harassment.
The manager asserts that since Booba decided to go to war against influencers and accused her, last July in Liberation, of participating in their “doubtful business”, she has received dozens of hate messages and threats every day. In three months, the rapper has also pinned Magali Berdah 200 times in publications on social networks. The latter’s lawyer added that Magali Berdah and her entourage had received “more than 100,000 messages” of hatred in the space of a few months.
During her press conference on Wednesday, the creator of Shauna Events never mentioned Booba’s name, but her words left no doubt. “This man who calls himself a whistleblower (this is how Booba called himself in the interview with Liberation, editor’s note) is a stalker”, launched Magali Berdah, denouncing a “very serious” situation which is taking place “in the sight of all”. “The fight to protect our children (from the excesses of social networks, editor’s note) cannot be carried by a man who stirs up hatred on social networks and elsewhere”, continued Magali Berdah, with tears in her eyes.
“Everyone must take responsibility. And as far as I’m concerned, I’m standing up and I won’t be silent,” she concluded in a broken voice.
The latter’s lawyer mentioned the multiple complaints filed by his client for harassment and assault.
Booba, for his part, revealed in July that he had filed a complaint against X for “misleading commercial practices” attributed to Magali Berdah’s company in particular.
