The Guillaume Meurice affair continues to generate ink. According to the latest information from Release, the 42-year-old comedian would have been fired “for serious misconduct » by Radio France. The latter would have notified him by mail of the “ early termination of (one’s) contract for serious misconduct“, he revealed to AFP.

On May 2, the columnist already announced on X (formerly Twitter) that he had been removed from the air.

I have been summoned to a preliminary interview with a view to possible disciplinary sanction which could go as far as early termination of my fixed-term contract, for serious misconduct. I am ordered to cease all professional activity at Radio France and not to show up at my workstation before said interview“, he declared.

Guillaume Meurice accused of anti-Semitism

His ouster was directly linked to the awkward skit he presented live last October, when he suggested listeners dress up as Benjamin Netanyahu for Halloween. Guillaume Meurice then compared the Israeli Prime Minister to a “ kind of Nazi but without foreskin“.

Accused of anti-Semitism, the forty-year-old received numerous complaints for “ provocation of violence and anti-Semitic hatred ” And ” public anti-Semitic insults“. These complaints were dismissed by the Nanterre public prosecutor’s office on April 22.

Following this decision, Guillaume Meurice reiterated his remarks before being summoned, on May 16, to a preliminary interview with the human resources of Radio France, specifies Release.

A member of Sud, he was able to count on the support of his union: “ Management maintains its grievances. We continued our arguments which aim to recall that Guillaume Meurice did his job as a comedian on the air and to defend that he did not lack loyalty to Radio France nor did he seek to exploit the air to personal purposes“.
