FRENCH ACTRESS STRIPS IN PROTEST AT MOST AUGUST FILM AWARDS CEREMONY
So social distancing has been hard on us all. But especially small businesses all over the world. Well, except maybe New Zealand. But not everyone seems to think that social distancing and staying Covid free is more important than having all businesses operate like everything is normal right now. We’ve had quite a bit of that in the United States. Well, we’re STILL having quite a bit of that in the United States. But we’re hardly alone. But France? Yes, France. One French actress made her appearance at an awards show quite the spectacle, stripping totally naked with a message.
CORINNE MASIERO THINKS ART, THEATER AND MOVIE HOUSES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN SOCIAL DISTANCING
Her name is Corinne Masiero, and when she hit the stage at the César awards, she was wearing a blood-stained donkey outfit. The César awards are a big deal over there, essentially the French equivalent of the Oscars. Corinne is angry about all the closures of both live theater as well as movie houses, because Covid. But then the audience sat openmouthed as the French actress then took off her outfit with nothing on underneath. Yikes. Well, except for words. She was “wearing” two messages. One said, “No culture, no future” on her front, with “give us back art, Jean!” on her back.
FRENCH ACTRESS AIMS PROTEST AT FRENCH PRIME MINISTER FOR PROTECTING FRANCE INSTEAD OF ART
Jean, of course, is France’s Prime Minister, Jean Castex. Castex, as the leader of France, has enforced the continuing closure of a host of things to help control the spread of Covid-19, and all its new strains. So sure, art is important. It always is! But until we all have access to vaccines, I personally think this is a no brainer. Yet France has had a lot of protests about this, and the naked French actress has a lot of company protesting. But, to be fair, people have had riots in Paris over a simple tobacco tax.
But for now, Say La V. That Scottish play on stage or screen can totally wait a little longer.
