French naturists get mad over Delormeau’s attacks

The French TV show “Touche pas à mon poste” which is presented by TV star Cyril Hanouna is known for its buzz-seeking direction based on controversial comments from columnists. One of them, Matthieu Delormeau, said that “naturists are usually ugly people”…

« Practiced by ugly people »…

The French TV channel TMC has recently aired a report about naturism. That was a great opportunity for the columnists of “Touche pas à mon poste” who reacted to the report the very next day. Matthieu Delormeau has largely participated in the debate through his ‘‘constructive vision’’ on the subject: “It is always ugly people who appear naked. They do not have the cult of the body… As if it was a way of saying that, since no one looks at me, I’m going to get rid of my clothes.” Naturists from all over France reacted a few minutes later…

Strong reactions to a simplistic thought

Reactions of Internet users were quick, and the French Federation of Naturism issued a statement on its Facebook page: “Naturists do not live in your world in which appearance and superficiality prevail. We have gone way beyond this, far from the diktats of fashion and appearing. It is all about being“.

It should not be forgotten that naturism is practiced by more than 2.5 million people in France… and are they all “ugly”? Who could possibly provide a federating definition of ”ugly” while remaining objective? Can anyone remind Mr. Delormeau the values of naturism, such as the respect of nature, tolerance and freedom? Supposing that these words mean something to him…
