VIDEO. “The first Arab I come across, I hit him with my helmet”: France XV player Melvyn Jaminet caught up in a scandal

A video of Melvyn Jaminet on Instagram, since deleted, is circulating on the networks. In it, we see the French XV full-back saying racist words.

“The first Arab I meet on the road, I hit him with my helmet.” On Instagram, the French XV full-back published a video that is making the rounds on social networks, in the midst of a turbulent political context.

The video has been removed

This video was put in “story” on Instagram, apparently by accident. It was removed. It was the deputy of France Insoumise, Sébastien Delogu, who brought out the images on X. “The rugby player’s comments are scandalous and must be punished very severely”wrote the politician. The web has been in turmoil ever since.

No contextual element is indicated on the video, neither place nor date.

The Rugby Club Toulonnais announced in the evening: “Following the video published on social networks involving Melvyn Jaminet, the RCT condemns the comments made and dissociates itself from them. An internal investigation has been opened and the club will communicate more widely at the end of it.”

The RCT player is currently with the Blues, in Argentina, for the summer tour. As a reminder, the French won against the Pumas this Saturday, July 6.
