Élisabeth Moreno denounces "intolerable words" in the interview with Nicolas Hulot

The former Minister of the Ecological Transition Nicolas Hulot was the guest of BFMTV this Wednesday morning. Anticipating the publication of an investigation by “Special Envoy”, who collected several testimonies accusing him of rape and sexual assault, he strongly defended himself.

The remarks were deeply shocked. Anticipating the publication of the magazine “Special Envoy”, which gives voice to several women who accuses him of rape and sexual assault, the former Minister of Ecological Transition denounced, on the set of BFMTV, “false statements” “.

During the interview, questioned on the facts by our journalist Bruce Toussaint, Nicolas Hulot tried a note of humor: “I know that I have a very ungrateful physique and that only the constraint allows me to live stories of ‘love”.

Widely reproduced on social networks, the sequence made a strong reaction, and many pointed to the inappropriate irony of the environmentalist, accused of serious facts. This is particularly the case of Elisabeth Moreno, the Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister in charge of Equality between women and men, who reacted on Twitter. “To be ironic on such a subject? Seriously? These words are intolerable,” she wrote.

“It’s not for him to cry”

On our antenna, several public figures have also denounced the speech of the former TV host, and in particular their violence vis-à-vis the victims. “To hear, every time a man is implicated, words of this type, which say that he is the victim, is something extremely hard”, underlined in particular Sandra Regol, deputy national secretary of ‘Europe Ecology-The Greens.

Another environmental figure, Sandrine Rousseau, explained that she was “one of those who have warned each time about the danger of working with Nicolas Hulot given his behavior with women”.

“It is not for him to cry, to speak as he did of ‘horror’, of ‘nightmare’. We accompany victims of rape on a daily basis, I can tell you that the nightmare is on their side. “, added Anne-Cécile Mailfert, calling on the former minister to” a little decency “.
