Digital Desk, Paris. French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped by a man. In a video going viral on social media, Macron is seen meeting his supporters. Then a man raises his hand and slaps him in the face. Macron’s security team immediately captures the man and throws him to the ground and takes the president away.

The incident took place when Macron was on a visit to the Drme region in south-eastern France, where he met restaurant owners and students. He talked about how life is returning to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with slapping the man also raised the slogan ‘Down with Macronia’. Montjoie Saint Denis also shouted. This used to be the war slogan of the French army, when France was a monarchy.
Politicians have strongly condemned the slapping incident. French Prime Minister Jean Casteux told the National Assembly shortly after the incident that democracy meant debate and legitimate disagreement. There should be no violence, verbal aggression and physical attacks. At the same time, Far Left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon tweeted to show solidarity with the President on the matter.
Let us tell you that recently a faction serving the French army had instructed President Macron about Islam. This group says that the ‘existence’ of France is at stake due to the concession to Islam religion.
