The controversy has been going on for a week and Cyril Hanouna continued to fuel it on Monday, going back on his remarks in favor of speedy justice to condemn the suspect in the murder and rape of Lola, a 12-year-old schoolgirl who was buried Monday. Several excerpts from his program “Touche pas à mon poste” have been widely relayed on social networks since last week, which have revived criticism against the host of C8.
Call for speedy justice
The first excerpt dates from Tuesday, October 18, when Cyril Hanouna hosted a debate on set with the title “Should we judge the crazy? about the schoolgirl’s murder case. “For this kind of people, for me the trial must be done immediately, and in a few hours it’s over, it’s direct life,” he says.
The next day, the C8 channel welcomed a record audience for “Touche pas à mon poste”: the debate the day before had been watched by 2.3 million viewers at its peak, or 9.2% audience share, a historic record for the channel.
And from his evening show, Cyril Hanouna did not go out of his way to express his joy, organizing a party on set with dancers, fireworks and sequins. These images were considered indecent by many Internet users in view of the terrible news which had gathered such a large number of viewers the day before.
On Friday, the Minister of Justice Éric Dupond-Moretti spoke on the subject in “C à vous”, on France 5. Asked by Anne-Élisabeth Lemoine about this injunction to expeditious justice, he replied that this way of to do belonged to the “Middle Ages”: “Nothing will prevent the judge from pronouncing the sentence he considers he should pronounce, when the time comes. (…) Sweeping the rule of law to gain audiences is something I cannot accept. »
This Monday, Cyril Hanouna outbid, addressing a response to Éric Dupond-Moretti. “Most people agreed with me and the lecturers, the do-gooders used that to hijack the case. (…) For me, their methods are those of the Middle Ages. (…) What is inadmissible, Mr Dupond-Moretti, is that this person did that, not what I said. »
He sought to take viewers by the feelings by evoking his 11-year-old daughter and saying that he had “spoken as a father”.
On social networks, this speech again sparked outrage, while Lola’s funeral had taken place earlier in the day. Cyril Hanouna meanwhile invited the Minister of Justice to speak on his show, tweeting: “The best thing is for him to come see us! »
