“I’m tired of being afraid”: Julien Lacroix opens up about his return to public life
“I’m tired of being afraid”; Julien Lacroix opens up about his return to public life in recent months in an interview on the show “Le monde à l’envers” with Stéphan Bureau.
The comedian took advantage of the platform to return to the statements of recent years against him.
“How was it in the public interest?” he wondered about behaviors that have been blamed on him and that have been publicized.
Recall that the comedian left public life in July 2020 following allegations of sexual violence perpetrated against nine women who denounced him in an investigation by the daily “Le Devoir”.
The comedian had then tried to return to the media sphere on several occasions and under different approaches. In particular, he tried to go from a first public speaking on social networks, saying that he was following “a therapeutic process to overcome his addiction to alcohol”, then, almost 11 months later, he granted an interview to the “Duty” in which he had awkwardly defended himself from the alleged facts.
After canceling a first return to the stage this summer, the comedian, shortly before Christmas, began to perform in front of small rooms (about 30 seats) for the recording of a podcast, “Humor and confession”, way questions -answers.
Shortly before, a controversial file from “La Presse +” and “98.5” breathed new life into the affair, discrediting the testimonies of certain victims, while clearing the way for the comedian’s return to boards.
