The former star actress Brigitte Bardot reported on the website of her animal welfare foundation against the French hunting association. She now has to pay several thousand euros for her statements.
Because acting icon Brigitte Bardot insulted the head of the French Hunters Association, she has to pay a fine of 5000 euros. As a court in Arras in northern France decided, she also has to pay compensation and pay the court costs.
According to the public prosecutor’s office, the former star actress must also delete offensive statements from 2019 about the hunters’ association from the website of her animal welfare foundation.
She had called hunters, among other things, “terrorists of the animal world.”
She called the French hunting association chief Willy Schraen a “blatant example” of this.
Bardot has to pay a total of 7,000 euros
The hunting association therefore received death threats and sued Bardot.
In addition to the actual fine of 5000 euros, Bardot has to pay 1000 euros in compensation to the hunting association chief Schraen and pay 1000 euros in court costs.
The 86-year-old reportedly did not appear in court.
The prosecutor had demanded a fine of 6000 euros in the process.
Bardot has been committed to animal welfare for a long time.
And I mean…The animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot describes hunters as “sub-humans” – “Nazi jargon”!
We are of the same opinion with you, Brigitte Bardot!
The lawsuit and the fine should do little harm to the passionate animal rights activist.
Rather, have helped.
Here is a petition against the verdict and the fine.
My best regards to all, Venus
