Ségolène Royal criticizes Eurovision 2024 on X – Formerly Twitter

Ségolène Royal, the former French minister and former presidential finalist, expressed a virulent criticism of the contest on X. Madame Royal denounced what she considers an “exhibition of ugliness and vulgarity”, questioning the allocation of European public funds to this event. She called for an investigation into the organizers’ clothing choices, describing the outfits as “exhibitionism,” and requested a detailed financial report of the competition.

Royal’s comments sparked a lively debate on social networks, with divided opinions. Some defend the artistic and expressive aspect of Eurovision, while others support the former minister’s criticisms of the perceived excessive extravagance.
