Internet users angry after this mocking tweet, the actor explains his remarks

Having a lot of followers on Twitter and being very active there can sometimes turn against you, as Pierre Niney has just learned the hard way. The star of Black Box and Yves Saint Laurent shared on social media his reaction to a BFM TV report on student precariousness. The controversy erupted with its subscribers, who divided into two clans: those who considered the joke risky, and those who approved of the humor of the actor. Anyway, he wanted to apologize and explain himself – we tell you everything!

A tweet deemed questionable

Yesterday, Tuesday August 16, Pierre Niney shared a report from BFMTV in which a French student recounts his precarious situation. His retweet was accompanied by a short comment, “When I tell you he’s the best character actor“. This questionable joke went very badly with some Internet users, who described it as shameful and unwelcome. A tweet quickly deleted by the actorwhich did not prevent the controversy from swelling on Twitter in less time than it takes to say!

Even if at the base you allude to Di Caprio, I find the wrong time to draw this parallel with a student in precariousness who explains his difficulties in making ends meet.
French cinema above ground, stuffed with subsidies that gives us life lessons.

Making humor about the precariousness of students… Very disappointing on your part.

The actor therefore insisted on explaining his remarks and apologizing.

I was only pointing out a resemblance to DiCaprio.

But if Pierre Niney has his detractors, he also has his defenders!

Sad to end up having to explain yourself for something as insignificant as a joke

Pierre Niney is the typical example that in this country you can no longer say anything, not even make a joke, without self-righteousness automatically falling on you. Convinced that these people were just born to piss off. Take a blow.

To anyone who takes offense to this tweet, go read the comments to the tweet from @BFMTV . In fact, a poor level 4 scholarship student, he is a UNEF activist who is busier campaigning for single-sex workshops than earning a little money to pay for his pasta!

August 17, 2022

but you have all become stupid or what ??? Pierre Niney does not make fun of student precariousness at all! Just look who the student looks like, he looks like Di Caprio! It’s serious to make polemics with nothing, are you bored at this point?

A controversy like we see every day on Twitter – hello Elon Musk. And you, what do you think of Pierre Niney’s joke?
