A dismissal at beIN Sports because of Jordan Bardella?

Author of a tweet insulting the voters of the National Rally, Benjamin Bernard is under threat of dismissal for serious misconduct.

The early legislative elections caused by the dissolution of the National Assembly risk not only bringing down the government. While the National Rally is on the verge of obtaining the majority and sending Jordan Bardella to Matignon, Benjamin Bernard, presenter at beIN Sports, risks losing his job. The fault of his tweet published Sunday evening after the announcement of the results of the first round.

« 12 million shipping costs in our country. That’s it, it had to come out.”wrote the beIN Sports sports journalist on his X account (formerly Twitter). A message that did not fail to provoke strong reactions, with beIN Sports distancing itself from its presenter. “Benjamin Bernard’s message is his own and in no way reflects a position on the part of beIN SPORTS. Our channel is dedicated to covering sports information, which we strive to do with the greatest neutrality and respect for all.”wrote Florent Houzot.

An irresponsible skid

And according to media specialist Clément Garin, Benjamin Bernard was summoned by his management to remind them that
“Among the twelve million (sons of b…) (sic) he insulted were beIN Sports loyalists,” his message could therefore have serious financial repercussions. His slippage is judged “irresponsible” and the management of the Qatari channel should summon him in the coming days for an interview prior to dismissal for “serious misconduct” and “violation of the morality clause”.

Caught in the storm, Benjamin Bernard quickly published a message of apology. “After these very intense hours that I would not wish on anyone, I would like to apologize, he wrote. I should never have insulted anyone. It was a serious mistake on my part. Elections are a democratic principle that I, like everyone else, must respect.”
