“Hi it’s Leo, what does it say?”

This Thursday, February 22, several TikTokers are warning about a mass of sexist comments that they have been subjected to since the meteoric rise of the “abregefrere” account. “He is not responsible for it” believes influencer Chloë Gervais, who however questions her content which contributed to this wave of harassment. Abregefrere has still not reacted.

MPs are calling for the establishment of a parliamentary commission of inquiry into the emergency crisis. 136 deaths were recorded between January 2022 and March 2023 in services overwhelmed by a lack of staff and beds. An underestimated number, according to the High Authority of Health.

And then FIFA authorizes the French Football Federation to experiment further with the sound system for referees during matches. The first tests are planned for May for the playoffs of the first women’s division and for the final of the Men’s Coupe de France.
