As fears his layoff, Stéphane Guy was dismissed by Cana + following his support for Sébastien Thoen.
The Canal spirit has indeed definitely disappeared. Fired by his management after giving his support, live, to his friend Sébastien Thoen fired from Canal +, Stéphane Guy is paying a high price for these few words to the comedian. According to François Rauzy, journalist for France Bleu, the leaders of the encrypted channel would indeed have recorded the dismissal of its star commentator.
Commenting on the Montpellier-PSG meeting, the 50-year-old journalist had made a brief aside. “I want to salute my friend Sébastien Thoen who did not have the exit he would have deserved. We wish him good luck. We know that the fine spirit of Marie Portolano will ensure continuity in the Canal Sports Club ”, he had launched, then quoting Coluche: ” You have to be wary of comedians because sometimes they say things as a joke. “
Words launched on the air just days after the dismissal of Sébastien Thoen, fired from Canal + for having participated in a parody of Time for the pros, the hit show from CNews, the group’s news channel. A dismissal which had also prompted the Society of Journalists (SDJ) of Canal + to react. “We, employees of the sports department of Canal +, and / or journalists from the Canal + editorial staff, are outraged against this eviction”, had informed the SDJ in a letter signed by 150 employees including Marie Portolano, Habib Beye, Laurie Delhosthal, David Berger, Olivier Tallaron, Sidney Govou, Jessica Houara or Nicolas Tourriol … No doubt that the dismissal of Stéphane Guy should cause a new reaction.
