The artist, who was performing at the Touquet Music Beach Festival, verbally attacked the French President on Saturday. The director of the festival would have thrown the contents of a glass in the face of the manager of the Franco-American.
« Macron, motherfucker, Macron, get out ». Since he insulted the French president during a concert at the Touquet Music Beach Festival, the Franco-American DJ Marc Rebillet has been making headlines. This intervention in boxer shorts, encouraged by the public, might not have had the same effect if Emmanuel Macron, as well as his wife, had not been present in the crowd of the electronic music festival.
“We overshadowed Macron a little last night. The festival was not happy since he was present, but everyone needs to be put in their place from time to time, ”said the artist the next day on his Instagram account. In a long story, Marc Rebillet who admits being used to this type of provocation, explains that festival officials tried to mute his microphone after signaling him from behind the scenes to stop. According to the DJ, the festival president even threw the contents of a drink at her manager in anger. Information confirmed by a witness to Afrik-jeunes.
On Twitter the mayor of Le Touquet, Daniel Fasquelle, was indignant at the incident and asked the organizers of the Touquet Music Beach Festival to « ensure that [Marc Rebillet] is no longer invited ». For his part, the artist replied that we would not take it back. The demand of the festival organizers to reimburse the fee collected convinced him never to return.
