The Audiovisual and Digital Communication Regulatory Authority (Arcom) was seized after a sequence from Cyril Hanouna’s program “Touche pas à mon poste” deemed homophobic. It is the Interministerial Delegation for the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and anti-LGBT hatred (Dilcrah) which seized the former CSA.

“The remarks heard during the TPMP program are unacceptable.” On its Twitter account, the Interministerial Delegation for the fight against racism, anti-Semitism and anti-LGBT hatred (Dilcrah) explains that it has seized the Regulatory Authority for Audiovisual and Digital Communication (Arcom), following a sequence broadcast last Thursday in Do not touch My TV, on C8. A sequence deemed homophobic. One of the show’s columnists, Raymond Aabou, said that in the eyes of some, gay people were not normal.

“There are people who don’t like fags, they say ‘As long as they don’t fuck with me, it’s not my ass, they do whatever they want,'” the columnist said. The Dilcrah therefore announces that it has decided to seize the Regulatory Authority for Audiovisual and Digital Communication (Arcom), and explained its decision on Twitter. “Homophobic behavior does not fall under freedom of expression and has no place in our society”, recalled the Dilcrah.

The C8 channel deleted the replay of this program and the columnist in question apologized, explaining that he had been misunderstood and had been “clumsy”. “We understood the opposite of my words,” he said.
