Controversy. The actress is back on her 2012 comments that had been scandalous.
Véronique Genest, who played Julie Lescaut on TF1, took advantage of an interview with Télé-Star to review the controversy he had caused in 2012. That year, he said in a Jean-Marc Morandini show: "Phobia means scary, so yes, maybe yes, probably, I am Islamophobic like many French people, I am afraid of Islam because we are afraid of something we do not know.
"I'm not the only one to be scared"
A statement that was scandalous, the actress became a persona non grata on many televisions. Rappers Bigflo and Oli had meanwhile refused to go to a show where she was invited.
Six years after the scandal, Véronique Genest says he has fully taken on his words: "I do not regret anything (…) People are smart and my positions, they understood very well … Some people say something much more difficult than me . "
This is not the first time this kind of talk has been made. Already in 2016, he said on the set of LCI: "It is not me who speaks of my statements about Islam, it is Islam that speaks for itself, I regret nothing, it was fear. they're scared and I'm still scared and I'm not the only one scared. "
