The Minister of Culture did not test her flow, but threw out a few punchlines: Rachida Dati indeed participated, Monday February 12, 2024, in a show broadcast on the streaming platform Twitch. The show, DVM Showdedicated to rap and urban music, is broadcast live from Aulnay-sous-Bois (Seine-Saint-Denis), in the north-eastern suburbs of Paris.
And as she took the opportunity to invite the hosts to perform in her ministry, she triggered the ire of several far-right personalities, including Jordan Bardella.
“Come to the Ministry of Culture with your equipment, install everything, come and do a DVM: the invitation is extended,” suggested Rachida Dati, riding the good mood. And when one of the animators pointed out to him: “But we’re making noise, you know? », the tenant of rue de Valois replied that “a Ministry of Culture without noise is not a Ministry of Culture”.
RN and Reconquest offended by the sequence
The sequence provoked angry reactions from the far right: “Rachida Dati must explain her hilarious presence yesterday at the DVM show, a program which permanently promotes the deal,” declared the president of the National Rally, Jordan Bardella. .
The head of the RN list for Europeans also considered that the DVM show was the “den of an anti-Semite”, in reference to Freeze Corleone, a controversial figure in French rap who had been the subject of an investigation for provocation to racial hatred (finally dismissed) and targeted, since Saturday, by an investigation for advocating terrorism after appearing to evoke, in a song, the Nice attack of July 14, 2016.
However, if the sulphurous rapper did participate in a previous show, filmed before the opening of this second investigation, he was not present alongside the minister on Monday evening.
