French President Emmanuel Macron Slapped By Man
French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face on Tuesday by a man in a crowd of onlookers while on a walkabout in southern France.
The incident took place while Macron was on a visit to the Drome region in south-eastern France, where he met restaurateurs and students to talk about how life is returning to normal after the Covid-19 pandemic.
When the French president reached out his hand to greet the crowd, suddenly, a man slapped Macron while shouting out “Down with Macronia” (“A Bas La Macronie”).
Macron’s security entourage quickly intervened to pull the man to the ground and move Macron away from him. Two people were arrested in connection with the incident.
