“She’s scary! ” Columnist Fabien Leceuvre launched on the independent Arts-Mada webradio on Wednesday, April 7, with a particularly sharp comment targeting singer Hoshi. And the young performer is not the only one targeted by this insult because for him, the music industry must be made up of people with advantageous physicalities.

“When are we going to come out with handsome guys, or gorgeous girls?” When you look at Hoshi for example, who has an incredible, indisputable talent… but hey, you put a poster of Hoshi in your room? “, he said, adding that she should instead “Give (r) his songs to sublime girls”.
Outraged Internet users
These comments were quickly picked up on social networks and triggered strong reactions. “Full and complete support for Hoshi in the face of the degrading and humiliating remarks she suffered from this guy”, writes a user on Twitter while another condemns comments “Intolerable”.
The music producer Pascal also supported the singer, as well as other personalities from the world of culture or journalism.
The singer herself reacted this Wednesday evening. “So serious to make this kind of words Fabien Leceuvre. Do we offer him a poster or a mirror? I hesitate “, she posted on her Twitter account.
Faced with the outcry, the columnist specializing in French song and former sidekick of Patrick Sébastien in “the Happy Years” on France 2 (2006-2019) apologized on the same social network.
“Good evening Hoshi, A thousand apologies for these awkward words taken out of context and which may have hurt you. I was simply recounting a difference from the time when record companies and audiences paid much more attention to the physique of artists than today. “
An answer far from having convinced the singer, still referred to her physique. “But is it actually a joke?” You are still talking about my looks. Mind-blowing. It is because of people like you that young people give up their dreams, not because of the record companies. “
