The host Jean-Luc Reichmann has taken the defence of his colleague Tex, dismissed from the program Les Z’amours after a joke in bad taste on violence against women.

An eviction that continues to provoke debate. Reminder of the facts : on 30 November last year, Tex was the guest of C8 in the show is that of the tv. Before leaving the plateau, the presenter of the Z’amours had dared to joke about battered women. A dash of black humour, obviously not well-appreciated a part of the viewers and which had serious consequences for the person concerned since that France TV licensee. On the waves of Europe 1, Jean-Luc Reichmann has responded to the foreclosure, then that Tex had replaced the commands of the Z’amours in 2000.

Some applaud the decision of the public service, others regret the end of freedom of expression. “It is a little dependent on the ragot and this race standing where it should be when even that one exists “, explains Jean-Luc Reichmann. ” Tex, we know them. This is Tex, he has exceeded the limits, it is like this,” says the presenter of the 12 strokes of Noon. Even if he admits the joke was in “very bad taste” Jean-Luc Reichmann said that it ” continues to live, to laugh.”

“A bit of unconsciousness, a little carelessness, it would do us well,” concluded the presenter. Jean-Luc Reichmann is not the first to take the defense of Tex. Humorist Anne Roumanoff has already flown to the rescue of the presenter and Riss, editor-in-chief of Charlie Hebdo, was also supported.
