“Let’s say it frankly, it was missed”: the presenters of “Télématin” apologize after the sketch on the Nice attack

As a reminder, the comedian had chosen to address the Nice attack – whose trial opened in France yesterday – and the death of the terrorist Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel for his first column on the show. Unfortunately for her, this sketch came down to a host of hiccups and clumsiness. And a commercial break in the middle. The comedian was justified on Instagram.

This Tuesday morning, when going on the air for “Télématin”, Julia Vignali and Thomas Sotto therefore publicly apologized to viewers following Alexandra Pizzagalli’s column. “Many of you were rightly struck by a humorous column on the show yesterday which, frankly, was a failure, began Thomas Sotto. It can happen, but in this case, it has only added pain to all those who have been victims of this tragedy, and for that, we are deeply sorry”.

His colleague then added this: “Personally, the attacks have a very special resonance for me. I am unfortunately well placed to know that it takes a lot of hindsight to laugh at such a tragedy and sometimes you realize that you will never get there.

The France Télévisions group had also sent a word to the victims of the Nice attack last night after this controversial column: “We regret that a humorous column rightly offended many viewers. We offer our apologies and express our solidarity with the victims of the Nice attack and their loved ones.”
