Christophe Beaugrand apologizes after participating in a controversial campaign against homophobia: “I thought the method was provocative but effective”

This morning, on his Twitter account, Christophe Beaugrand spoke after a shock campaign aimed at the Le Refuge Foundation, whose mission is to provide temporary accommodation to young LGBT + victims of homophobia. But this campaign caused controversy this weekend.

“Dear friends as an ambassador of the Le Refuge foundation. I participated in the shock campaign on the fake site to “delete” his child. To all those who were hurt, I sincerely apologize” , begins the journalist on his Twitter account.

And to add: “I thought of the provocative but effective method. I think that the main thing remains the message that we sent: unfortunately there are hundreds of families who want their child to disappear from their lives”. “That’s why Le Refuge works hard. When we move, sometimes we can be wrong. Sorry again,” he concludes in his message.

It all started last Sunday when, on his Twitter account, Christophe Beaugrand posted a message to alert Internet users to a “filthy homophobic site that offers to help people erase their gay child from family photos”. He invited them to “report the site” which “makes him want to vomit”.

On the site in question, one could read the following presentation “Your child has come out and you are ashamed of it? Erase him permanently from your life with artificial intelligence”. “Your photos of family, birthday or any other memories will be retouched in an instant”, continued the presentation.

Yesterday, still on the social network, Christophe Beaugrand took the floor to clarify that “this site does not exist”. “On the other hand, hundreds of parents each year try to ‘erase’ their children from their lives. That’s why Le Refuge exists”, indicated the journalist, referring to the Foundation’s website to make a donation.
