Many French footballers, including Kylian Mbappé or Antoine Griezmann, shared their disgust and anger after the video of a music producer beaten up in Paris by three police officers.
Seeing French football players coming out of their traditional reserve on social issues is a good indicator of these issues’ extent.
After the wave of indignation aroused on social networks by the publication of the Loop Sider video, three police officers are seen beating a music producer at the entrance of his recording studio; it’s time for international tricolors to take over.
After Alexandre Lacazaette, Jules Koundé (not yet international, but it will come), and Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé also went there with his angry little tweet. “Unbearable video,” “Unacceptable violence”.
this is what the Parisian number 7 tweeted, accompanying this with the photo of the scarred face of the producer attacked by the police and a piece of text from the song by Diam’s My France to me.

Mbappé’s tweet concluded with the words “Stop racism,” follows in particular that of his teammate in the blue jersey Antoine Griezmann, who had written earlier on his Twitter account: “I hurt my France.”
