The defendant was found guilty of "contempt of person depositary of public authority" and sentenced to a fine of 1,000 euros.

He had admitted his responsibility.

At the hearing, he explained that he had acted after "a psychologically tough day" after a statement by the President of the Republic saying that he "fucked" the unvaccinated.

Vaccinated three times, the forty-year-old had expressed himself in a way that he described as filthy.

The respondent had notably used the expressions "dark shit", "group of dirty idiots", "son of a bitch" and "group of walkers from my balls".

"Too bad we're not in 1789, I would have seen your head on top of a pike," he also wrote.
