Images and videos have flopped many social media platforms showing a man who slapped the President of France today.
The French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped by a bystander across the face during a trip to southeast France today on the second stop of a nation-wide tour.
While leaving a high school in the French department of Drome, the president approached a group of supporters who were standing behind a barrier. It is at this moment that the president came to greet the supporters and as he offered his hand to great, he instead received a slap on his face.
When the incident happened, Macron’s bodyguards intervened quickly and reports say that the man and some other person were arrested and they are being questioned.
Information about the man who slapped and his intention to slap the man has not yet been revealed.
