He summoned her to “shut up” and of “chasing rats at night instead of talking bullshit”. The attacks of host Cyril Hanouna against the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, have earned a fine of 300,000 euros for his channel C8, announced theAudiovisual and digital communication regulatory authority (Arcom), Wednesday May 31.
This new sanction from the media regulator against C8 comes four months after a record fine of 3.5 million euros, still due to the program “Touche pas à mon poste!” (TPMP) by Cyril Hanouna. This fine was imposed at the beginning of February on the channel, after the insults launched live by the host to the deputy LFI Louis Boyard, in November.
The new fine, which punishes “failures” on the part of C8, moreover takes into account the “previous sanctions imposed for previous breaches of the same obligations”underlines the Arcom.
The show pinned many times
The remarks against Anne Hidalgo had been made in “TPMP” on October 5, 2022. Cyril Hanouna had also declared that the city councilor was part “of a ‘bunch of morons’, exclaiming ‘don’t piss us off’ and repeatedly repeating the expression ‘shut the fuck up'”, continued the regulator. The Arcom “considered that these remarks were likely to infringe the rights of the mayor of Paris, respect for her honor and her reputation”.
C8 (channel of the Canal+ group, controlled by the conservative billionaire Vincent Bolloré) has been pinned on numerous occasions in recent years by Arcom, because of Cyril Hanouna’s broadcasts. In March, for example, the instance was seized about a controversial sequence of “TPMP”, where a guest had put forward a conspiracy theory on an alleged drug taken from children.
