Dadju, one of the biggest record sellers in France, brother of Gims, posted in a story on Instagram a photo of the bloody face of the black producer.

Benjamin Biolay, through the same means, has also broadcast photos of the scene captured by the cameras with this mention "unbearable, shocking, unfair, crazy".

Author, songwriter and performer Hoshi meanwhile retweeted the Loopsider report which revealed the facts and commented: “Shameful.

Force this gentleman [Michel Zecler].

It brings tears to my eyes to see that.

I hate this violence.

How did we get here ?


"Our colleagues must be able to live and work in peace whatever their skin color"

The Director General of Sacem (Society of Authors, Composers and Music Publishers) Jean-Noël Tronc, "deeply shocked by unbearable images", posted on Twitter a message in solidarity with "Michel Zecler whose extreme dignity in his reaction is a lesson in democracy and courage ”.

"Beyond the individual facts, a fundamental question arises for the Republic and the diversity which makes our strength", he wrote again.

"These unbearable images hurt us in the Republic, continues Bruno Lion, president of the Board of Directors of Sacem, on Twitter.

We express emotion and solidarity to Michel Zecler and his team.

Our colleagues must be able to live and work in peace whatever their skin color ”.

The four police officers who are the subject of an investigation by the police after the images of violence on the producer are summoned this Friday to be heard under the custody regime.

The four men, suspended since Thursday from their functions, are expected in the premises of the IGPN, responsible for this investigation opened since Tuesday for "violence" and "forgery in public writing".
