The candidate seduces the jury and finally joins Vianney’s team. But the candidate’s joy is short-lived. The next day, Internet users unearthed tweets from the young rapper dating from 2017: homophobia, sexism, racism, allusion to pedophilia, five tweets from The Vivi are denounced by the social network.
The web ignites, and the candidate of The Voice speaks on his account Instagram, explaining to have written these tweets when he was 17 years old: “By rereading these messages, I feel a feeling of shame. schoolyard of an inconsistent teenager that chills my spine. I didn’t mean a word of what I wrote. I apologize to anyone I offended with these shameful messages. ” Despite the apologies, ITV Studios France, producer of The Voice, decides that The Vivi will not continue its journey in the TF1 tele-hook: “We were extremely shocked by these tweets which are the opposite of the values of inclusion and tolerance advocated by The Voice. ” If the production emphasizes that the rapper has apologized, it continues to believe that “these messages remain incompatible with our values and with his participation in the program which ends today.” However, the lawyer Jérémie Assous, questioned by Le Parisien, denounces “an illegal decision”, even going so far as to speak of “unfair dismissal”: “The sanction of the production is even more severe than the law which provides that a criminal record is erased at the age of 18. “

He had particularly upset Internet users during blind auditions by speaking in his portrait of his big sister, blind and paralyzed. “I wanted to fight for her, she is my first fan” explained Abi in February 2020.
