The wife of president Emmanuel Macron irritated the LGBT rights activists of her country as she was posing for a picture with a man who is known for his extremely rude homophobic remarks. Marcel Campion, who calls himself the kind of funfairs, met madame Macron as she was doing shopping for her grandchildren at the Christmas Market in the French capital. He asked the first lady for the photo and she agreed, which brought her under fire as the pictures went viral. “Brigitte Macron or the French elegance. What is more amazing than posing with Marcel Campion, King of the funfairs? Ah no, sorry, king of the homophobes. Merry Christmas,” one Twitter user who describes himself as a gay casting director, wrote. “it’s nice to see the French president’s wife posing with a notorious homophobe. Very ‘Christmas spirit,’” bitterly commented openly gay politician and French Communist Party spokesperson Ian Brossat. Madame Macron’s spokesperson noted that visiting the market was a private matter and taking a picture with Campion did not mean she or her husband agreed with his moral and political views.
