After his controversial remarks on the physique of the singer Hoshi, the columnist Fabien Lecoeuvre wanted to explain himself on RTL.
“I tripped my feet in the carpet”
Faced with Pascal Praud, Fabien Lecoeuvre first tried to make people forget the nature of his words: “We have to re-contextualize things. I was asked about an article in the World (…) It was a debate on yesterday and today in song. I explained that today there are very, very few artists, stars who are also performers … “. The RTL journalist then refocused his interlocutor: “There you type in key, forgive me Fabien. You say ‘Do you see a poster of Hoshi in your room? ‘ No but you said something stupid, it can happen to all of us but just say: ‘I said something stupid and I’m sorry for that’“, he got exasperated. After various discussions, Fabien Lecoeuvre finally admitted a fault: “Obviously, I admit that I was clumsy (…). I did not use the correct qualifier and it is a slip. I was in an explanation and I tripped over the carpet in an explanation.”
“There is a kind of hatred …”
Fabien Leceuvre nevertheless sought to denounce the response he had received after his statement: “Sometimes in explanations, it can happen, we can get out of hand. But we cannot question the seriousness of my work, the books that I have written (…). No, but it is above all that there is a kind of hatred around that. Because all this is instrumentalized, you imagine. The great specialists today on the networks which instrumentalize and which give me all the faults of the Earth. ” Pascal Praud did not let this accusation pass: “Ah bah yes but you’re funny. It’s the rules of the game. If I throw something like that, I know what I’m going to take …”. The words of the music specialist did not seem to move Hoshi in any case, who split a simple emoji representing a clown in response to his Twitter account.
