Gilles Verdez threatened: the columnist of TPMP reveals the terrible consequences of his pass of arms with Francky Vincent

This Wednesday, December 7, Cyril Hanouna wanted to return to the accusations of Gilles Verdez against Francky Vincent about his friendship with Dieudonné. The columnist took the opportunity to reveal that his position had had serious consequences for him because he received numerous threats after the broadcast of the program.

A cry from the heart with heavy consequences. This Tuesday, December 6, Francky Vincent was invited on the set of Do not touch My TV on C8. The 66-year-old singer was on hand to speak about the backlash surrounding his being named Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the Ministry of Culture. The interpreter of Fruit of the passion was part of a promotion of 450 personalities, which notably includes the rapper Orelsan and the comedian Régis Laspalès, “who have distinguished themselves by their creations in the artistic or literary field or by the contribution to the influence that they have brought to the influence of Arts and Letters in France and in the world”, as indicated by the Ministry of Culture on its website.

But during the broadcast, the columnist of Cyril Hanouna, Gilles Verdez, wished to take the floor to attack Francky Vincent. The journalist has indeed expresses his disapproval of seeing Francky Vincent be named Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, in particular because of the links he maintains with the controversial humorist Dieudonné. He also wanted to recall that the West Indian singer had declared in the past that Dieudonné was “his idol“, and that he vowed to her”all the respect in the world”. “Dieudonné is an anti-Semite condemned as such. How can you say that?“, the columnist then asked him. “When I like an artist or a celebrity, the rest is none of my business“, replied the singer. “Does the fact that he is anti-Semitic concern you?!“, outbid Gilles Verdez. “I am West Indian. We are like that. We are spontaneous in relation to the person“, retorted Francky Vincent, while specifying that he liked”the artist“. After a small pass of arms between the two men, Gilles Verdez raised his voice by throwing to the artist: “If you support Dieudonné’s anti-Semitism, it means that you are an anti-Semite!”.

Gilles Verdez: “it disturbed me a lot”

And this Wednesday, December 7, Cyril Hanouna wanted to come back to these lively exchanges. During the debates, Gilles Verdez notably revealed that his position had had very sad consequences for him. “A pretty violent campaign was waged today with thousands of messages that I have trouble with”explained the columnist, before adding: “I had things like ‘we will profane your corpse’, ‘I hope that your loved ones will suffer the consequences of what you said’, ‘we will find you’, ‘don’t come to the Antilles otherwise you’re dead’ . I’ll give you a few that are obnoxious but still acceptable. It was extremely violent.”. Terrible threats which also question Gilles Verdez. “It makes me wonder about the state of our country. It bothered me a lot. I had a lot of support but also people who make concessions to anti-Semitism, and that is not acceptable”he concluded.
