Several Star Academy viewers seized ARCOM (ex-CSA) after the sequence in which a teacher humiliates, according to them, Julien – TF1 tries to extinguish the controversy with the teacher’s apologies – Watch
Several Star Academy viewers seized ARCOM (ex-CSA) after the sequence in which a professor humiliates, according to them, Julien. The ARCOM which should watch and analyze the sequence in the next few days to find out if there has really been a slippage on the part of this professor. To fully understand this controversy, he wants to go back to what happened at the start of the week.
After being saved by the public on Saturday evening, Julien, one of the emblematic candidates of this Star Academy season, was treated to a rather violent debrief on his return to the castle.
Alongside his classmates, the singer received comments from stage expression teacher Laure Balon:
“You never listen to anything (…) You’re lazy, you don’t try (…) You’re off the mark (…) You, you’re there flirting with the public, you flirt with the camera to get the public to vote!
While the young man explained that he had an anxiety attack this Saturday evening, before going on stage, he asked the teacher if she would have preferred “that he pass out?” And Laure Balon’s response was just as violent, since she threw at him: “Yes, at least you will have done something!”.
These remarks triggered a wave of indignation on social networks, some therefore speaking of harassment against Julien.
On social networks, it was above all the tone used by the professional that shocked Internet users, some very upset, some going so far as to demand her departure from “Star Ac”.
A situation which obviously made the production react, since we could see last night in the daily a sequence in which Laure Balon came to apologize to Julien:
“Know that when I left the debrief, I was very bad because I didn’t give you your chance. I didn’t give you a chance to express yourself. I cut you off and it was really, really clumsy on my part. I shouldn’t have. Deep down, I’m not like that at all. It’s just the stuff I was taught that takes over and I really trying to change.
This is the result of a generation of teachers who were like that. We had no right to speak. I don’t know what happened, it’s like something came inside me and I couldn’t control it.
The worst part is that I’m supposed to teach you how to deal with emotions and I haven’t dealt with mine. I’m still on a learning curve just like you. The only thing I wanted was to give you confidence and I did the complete opposite. And I didn’t take your discomfort into account so I wasn’t fair to you.”
