“The floodgates, I’ll stop.” Saturday May 4, Léa Salamé was at the helm of a new issue of What an era! on France 2. With Christophe Dechavanne, the journalist who also works on France Inter received a new round of guests, including Adriana Karembeu, Cristina Cordula, but also the emergency doctor (and columnist of Telematin) Gerald Kierzek. And the presence of the latter on the set was not insignificant. Indeed, Léa Salamé decided to invite a health professional to intelligently return to the reflection she made last week to the comedian Artus when he revealed to her that he no longer drank alcohol for several years.

Léa Salamé: “I received so many messages…”

In reaction to this confidence, Léa Salamé told him bluntly: So you’ve become boring? A dig which, since then, has opened the debate on what Artus himself described as a judgment very representative of a Gallic state of mind where, “as soon as you stop drinking, in France, you become boring”. I received so many messages, there were so many reactions, between those who were shocked by my joke, those who were shocked by the extent of the reactions to this valve, in mode ‘definitely, we can’t say anything more’thus confided the companion of Raphaël Glucksmann, who therefore concluded that she did not “didn’t know how to do it” jokes. And so, decided not to do any more, happily leaving them to Christophe Dechavanne. But not only.

Léa Salamé, “surprise” by the reactions, questions himself after his remark on alcohol

“Surprise” by these reactions, which she did not expect, Léa Salamé assured that it was a joke, also taken as such by Artus and the rest of the guests on the set, and not a desire on her part to “advocating alcohol”. But, afterward, the France Télévisions journalist and her team said to themselves that this misinterpreted valve posed at the bottom a real question, a real social debate, a substantive subject. That’s why she decided to come back with the doctor Gerald Kierzek on the set of What an era!, not content with an excuse thrown on set to appease reactions. A questioning that deserves to be welcomed.
