BERNARD TAPIE


Bernard Tapie, né le 26 janvier 1943 dans le 20e arrondissement de Paris et mort le 3 octobre 2021 dans le 7e arrondissement de Paris, est un homme d’affaires et homme politique français.

REUSSIE SA VIE : CHANSON INTERPRETÉE PAR BERNARD TAPIE

Il est dirigeant d’un groupe d’entreprises, notamment propriétaire d’Adidas et de l’Olympique de Marseille, gérant du Groupe Bernard Tapie et propriétaire du Groupe La Provence, qui édite le journal du même nom, ainsi que Corse-Matin.

Dans les années 1990, engagé en politique en tant que radical de gauche, il est deux fois ministre de la Ville au sein du gouvernement Bérégovoy, député des Bouches-du-Rhône à deux reprises, député européen (sa liste obtient 12 % aux élections de 1994) ainsi que conseiller général des Bouches-du-Rhône.

Bernard Tapie naît le 26 janvier 1943 dans le 20e arrondissement de Paris Il est le fils de Jean-Baptiste Tapie (1920-2010), ouvrier ajusteur-fraiseur puis frigoriste puis patron de PME, né le 18 juillet 1920 à Niaux, en Ariège, d’une famille paysanne pauvre et de Raymonde Nodot (1920-2013), aide-soignante. Son grand-père Léonce (1890-1964), cheminot natif de Villeneuve-d’Olmes, s’était installé en 1923 avec sa famille au Blanc-Mesnil, dans la banlieue nord de Paris.

Il s’invente un cursus scolaire qui aboutit à l’école d’électricité industrielle de Paris et l’obtention d’un diplôme de technicien en électronique alors qu’il « a vraisemblablement pour seul bagage un certificat d’études primaires ».

Outre ce parcours scolaire romancé, il « perpétuera la tradition du mensonge dans d’autres domaines pour se concocter un itinéraire décent et aguicheur » selon le journaliste Christophe Bouchet.

Il effectue son service militaire au 93e régiment d’infanterie au camp de Frileuse, dans le département des Yvelines. Il rejoint les EOR à Montpellier mais échoue aux examens pour devenir officier et quitte l’armée en octobre 1963

Il tente une carrière dans le cinéma et le théâtre, sous le nom de Bernard Pascal, puis une carrière de chanteur chez RCA sous le nom de Bernard TapyNote , sans succès. Il poursuit le façonnage de sa succes story en s’inventant une carrière d’ingénieur chez Panhard (il n’y est que prospecteur) et de coureur automobile de Formule 3 chez Matra, carrière à laquelle il renonce après un accident dans une Lotus qui le laisse quasiment indemne (et non trois jours dans le coma comme le rappellent les médias). Il aurait trouvé sa voie dans les affaires par la suite

Dès qu’il apprend être atteint d’un cancer de l’estomac en septembre 2017, Bernard Tapie décide de médiatiser sa maladie. Il subit des traitements de chimiothérapie et, en janvier 2018, une lourde intervention chirurgicale. La même année, il annonce qu’il souffre d’un double cancer de l’œsophage et de l’estomac En novembre 2019, il déclare que son cancer s’est étendu aux poumons tout en refusant de se dire en phase terminale En avril 2021, il évoque avoir également des atteintes aux reins et au cerveau

Bernard Tapie meurt le 3 octobre 2021 à 8 h 40, dans son hôtel particulier situé au 52, rue des Saints-Pères à Paris, des suites de son cancer métastasé, à l’âge de 78 ans

M. BERNARD TAPIE. RIP

Après cette annonce, des acteurs, politiques et sportifs lui rendent hommage, saluant son courage et sa combativité. Une chapelle ardente se tient au milieu de la pelouse du stade Vélodrome le 7 octobre : son cercueil y est exposé et près de 5 000 personnes viennent lui rendre hommage Le lendemain, ses funérailles ont lieu en la cathédrale Sainte-Marie-Majeure de Marseille Il est inhumé au cimetière de Mazargues, situé dans le septième arrondissement de Marseille

Vie privée et familiale

Bernard Tapie épouse en 1964 Michèle Layec avec qui il a une fille Nathalie et un fils Stéphane, animateur, producteur et acteur En secondes noces, il s’unit le 23 mai 1987 à Corfou (Grèce)108 à Dominique Mialet-Damianos, d’origine grecque, avec qui il a une fille, Sophie, chanteuse et comédienne, et un fils, Laurent. Il achète l’hôtel de Cavoye du 52 rue des Saints-Pères, à Paris, où il vit avec sa famille. Son frère cadet, Jean-Claude, ancien président du club de handball OM-Vitrolles (1991-1996)109, est président-directeur général de Massilia International.

À partir de 1999, il réside (principalement le week-end) dans une résidence secondaire dite « moulin du Breuil » située à Combs-la-Ville (Seine-et-Marne). Il achète cette propriété en 2010 à travers une société anglaise. Dans la nuit du 3 au 4 avril 2021, lui et son épouse sont victimes d’un cambriolage de leur domicile à Combs-la-Ville au cours duquel ils sont violentés et ligotés110. Des photographies du couple tuméfié sont ensuite publiées dans la presse

En 1992, il est parodié dans la chanson La Combine à Nanard, popularisant l’expression qui représente bien son image à ce moment-là. Dans son ouvrage Librement (1998), il s’affirme très différent de cette caricature, ajoutant qu’il trouve l’image qu’on présente de lui détestable.

Darlene Koldenhoven


Darlene Koldenhoven was born in a mixed neighborhood on the South side of Chicago to a family with an extensive musical lineage, but hearing only the singing of her mother and grandfather.

Darlene could hold her own harmony part by age 3, making her Easter Sunday debut in church singing a solo, “Low in the Grave He Lay.” Her initial emphasis of formal training was classical piano, which she began studying in earnest at age 9.

Two years prior, she learned sewing from grandmother and continues to carry on the tradition to this day, sewing and occasionally designing her clothes and concert gowns. Her father, awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, died from malaria complications contracted during his “tours of duty.”

The family suffering from the financial hardship, a single mother, and her sister being born deaf, didn’t allow her hard working mother to afford formal singing lessons for Darlene until age 16.

The product of a strict Dutch Christian Reformed/Calvinist family, Darlene was only allowed to listen to or play religious or classical music, not allowed to improvise, and never really listened to pop music until college where she absorbed everything from the Beatles and Middle Eastern music to jazz.

But the fierce work ethic and discipline she learned from home and her schooling made her an outstanding scholarly achiever, thus preparing her for the ubiquitous and enviable career she now relishes in the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles. Arriving in Los Angeles in January with only a leap-of-faith, $400, her car, 6 wool turtleneck sweaters (she’s from Chicago) and no contacts – therein lay the story of how hard work and perseverance pays off . . .

Ms. Koldenhoven revealed an early sensitivity to teaching and nurturing when she assisted in the early speech therapy of her only sibling, a sister 9 years younger who was born deaf with bilateral aural atresia. Experimental surgery created some hearing capabilities for her at age 4.

Revelations from that experience impacted Koldenhoven three-fold, sparking her intense interest in how vocal sound is created by the smallest gestures of the structures of the mouth, sound vibration as a source of healing and restoration, and the expressive possibilities of vocal sound without words – a signature element of her singular style.

Darlene Koldenhoven’s first two albums are her debut Keys to the World (an adult contemporary pop work with an emphasis on positive lyrics, both humanitarian and for the environment), Free to Serve (an eclectic gospel soundtrack, commissioned by the Christian Reformed Church of North America and lifted from a World Missions multi-media concert that she co-directed, wrote all the music for and performed in, featuring musicians and singers she brought back from the impoverished Sierra Leone, West Africa).

When asked about the future, in addition to her regular activities, Darlene is looking forward to touring with her concerts and workshops and is in the process of developing a unique music education program for those with special needs.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Sofia Villani Scicolone born 20 September 1934), known professionally as Sophia Loren is an Italian film actress and singer. She is one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Encouraged to enroll in acting lessons after entering a beauty pageant, Loren began her film career at age 16 in 1950. She appeared in several bit parts and minor roles in the early part of the decade, until her five-picture contract with Paramount in 1956 launched her international career. Notable film appearances around this time include The Pride and the Passion, Houseboat, and It Started in Naples.

Her talents as an actress were not recognized until her performance as Cesira in Vittorio De Sica’s Two Women (1961); Loren’s performance earned her the Academy Award for Best Actress, making her the first thespian to win an Oscar for a foreign-language performance.

She holds the record for having earned six David di Donatello Awards for Best Actress: Two Women; Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (1963); Marriage Italian Style (1964) (for which she was nominated for a second Oscar); Sunflower (1970); The Voyage (1974); and A Special Day (1977).

After starting a family in the early 1970s, Loren chose to make only occasional film appearances. Most recently, she has appeared in American films such as Grumpier Old Men (1995) and Nine (2009).

Aside from the Academy Award, she has won a Grammy Award, five special Golden Globes (including the Cecil B. DeMille Award), a BAFTA Award, a Laurel Award, the Volpi Cup for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival, the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival and the Honorary Academy Award in 1991.

In 1995, she received the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievements, one of many such awards. In 1999, Loren was named by the American Film Institute the 21st greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema, and she is currently the only living actress on the list.

Sofia Villani Scicolone was born on 20 September 1934 in the Clinica Regina Margherita in Rome, Italy,  the daughter of Romilda Villani (1910–1991) and Riccardo Scicolone, a construction engineer of noble descent (Loren wrote in her autobiography that she is entitled to call herself the Marquess of Licata Scicolone Murillo).

Loren’s father Riccardo Scicolone refused to marry Villani,  leaving the piano teacher and aspiring actress without financial support. Loren met with her father three times, at age five, age seventeen and in 1976 at his deathbed, citing that she forgave him but had never forgotten the abandonment of her mother.

Loren’s parents had another child together, her sister Maria, in 1938. Loren has two younger paternal half-brothers, Giuliano and Giuseppe. Romilda, Sofia, and Maria lived with Loren’s grandmother in Pozzuoli, near Naples.

During the Second World War, the harbour and munitions plant in Pozzuoli was a frequent bombing target of the Allies. During one raid, as Loren ran to the shelter, she was struck by shrapnel and wounded in the chin. After that, the family moved to Naples, where they were taken in by distant relatives.

After the war, Loren and her family returned to Pozzuoli. Loren’s grandmother Luisa opened a pub in their living room, selling homemade cherry liquor. Romilda Villani played the piano, Maria sang, and Loren waited on tables and washed dishes. The place was popular with the American GIs stationed nearby.

At age 15, Loren as Sofia Lazzaro entered the Miss Italia 1950 beauty pageant and was assigned as Candidate #2, being one to the four sharing contestants representing the Lazio region.

She was selected as one of the last three finalists and won the title of “Miss Elegance 1950” , while Liliana Cardinale won the title of “Miss Cinema” and Anna Maria Bugliari won the grand title of Miss Italia. She returned in 2001 as president of the jury for the 61st edition of the pageant. In 2010, Loren crowned the 71st Miss Italia pageant winner.

1951–1953 as Sofia Scicolone, and as Sofia Lazzaro

At age 17, as Sofia Lazzaro, she enrolled in acting class and was selected as an uncredited extra in Mervyn LeRoy’s 1951 film Quo Vadis (1951), filmed when she was 17 years old.

That same year, she appeared in Italian film Era lui… sì! sì!, where she played an odalisque, and was credited as Sofia Lazzaro. She appeared in several bit parts and minor roles in the early part of the decade, including the La Favorita (1952).

Carlo Ponti changed her name and public image to appeal to a wider audience as Sophia Loren, being a twist on the name of the Swedish actress Märta Torén and suggested by Goffredo Lombardo. Her first starring role was in Aida (1953), for which she received critical acclaim.

After playing the lead role in Two Nights with Cleopatra (1953), her breakthrough role was in The Gold of Naples (1954), directed by Vittorio De Sica. Too Bad She’s Bad, also released in 1954, and (La Bella Mugnaia) (1955) became the first of many films in which Loren co-starred with Marcello Mastroianni.

Over the next three years, she acted in many films, including Scandal in Sorrento, Lucky to Be a Woman, Boy on a Dolphin, Legend of the Lost and The Pride and the Passion.

Loren became an international film star following her five-picture contract with Paramount Pictures in 1958.

Among her films at this time were Desire Under the Elms with Anthony Perkins, based upon the Eugene O’Neill play; Houseboat, a romantic comedy co-starring Cary Grant; and George Cukor’s Heller in Pink Tights, in which she appeared as a blonde for the first time.

In 1960, she starred in Vittorio De Sica’s Two Women, a stark, gritty story of a mother who is trying to protect her 12-year-old daughter in war-torn Italy.

The two end up gang-raped inside a church as they travel back to their home city following cessation of bombings there.

Originally cast as the daughter, Loren fought against type and was eventually cast as the mother (actress Eleonora Brown would portray the daughter). Loren’s performance earned her many awards, including the Cannes Film Festival’s best performance prize, and an Academy Award for Best Actress, the first major Academy Award for a non-English-language performance or to an Italian actress.

She won 22 international awards for Two Women. The film was extremely well received by critics and a huge commercial success.

Though proud of this accomplishment, Loren did not show up to this award, citing fear of fainting at the award ceremony.

Nevertheless, Cary Grant telephoned her in Rome the next day to inform her of the Oscar award.[citation needed]

During the 1960s, Loren was one of the most popular actresses in the world, and continued to make films in the United States and Europe, starring with prominent leading men. In 1964, her career reached its pinnacle when she received $1 million to appear in The Fall of the Roman Empire.

In 1965, she received a second Academy Award nomination for her performance in Marriage Italian-Style.

Drawing of Loren by Nicholas Volpe after she won an Oscar for Two Women (1961)

Among Loren’s best-known films of this period are Samuel Bronston’s epic production of El Cid (1961) with Charlton Heston, The Millionairess (1960) with Peter Sellers,

It Started in Naples (1960) with Clark Gable, Vittorio De Sica’s triptych Yesterday,

Today and Tomorrow (1963) with Marcello Mastroianni,

Peter Ustinov’s Lady L (1965) with Paul Newman,

the 1966 classic Arabesque with Gregory Peck, and Charlie Chaplin’s final film

, A Countess from Hong Kong (1967) with Marlon Brando.

Loren received four Golden Globe Awards between 1964 and 1977 as “World Film Favorite – Female”

1970–1988

Loren worked less after becoming a mother. During the next decade, most of her roles were in Italian features.

During the 1970s, she was paired with Richard Burton in the last De Sica-directed film, The Voyage (1974), and a remake of the film Brief Encounter (1974).

The film had its premiere on US television on 12 November 1974 as part of the Hallmark Hall of Fame series on NBC. In 1976, she starred in The Cassandra Crossing.

It fared extremely well internationally, and was a respectable box office success in US market.

She co-starred with Marcello Mastroianni in Ettore Scola’s A Special Day (1977). This movie was nominated for 11 international awards such as two Oscars (best actor in leading role, best foreign picture).

It won a Golden Globe Award and a César Award for best foreign movie. Loren’s performance was awarded with a David di Donatello Award, the seventh in her career. The movie was extremely well received by American reviewers and became a box office hit.

Following this success, Loren starred in an American thriller Brass Target.

This movie received mixed reviews, although it was moderately successful in the United States and internationally.

In 1978, she won her fourth Golden Globe for “world film favorite”.

Other movies of this decade were Academy award nominee Sunflower (1970), which was a critical success, and Arthur Hiller’s Man of La Mancha (1972), which was a critical and commercial failure despite being nominated for several awards, including two Golden Globes. O’Toole and James Coco were nominated for two NBR awards, in addition the NBR listed Man of La Mancha in its best ten pictures of 1972 list.

In 1980, after the international success of the biography Sophia Loren: Living and Loving, Her Own Story by A. Hotchner, Loren portrayed herself and her mother in a made-for-television biopic adaptation of her autobiography, Sophia Loren: Her Own Story. Ritza Brown and Chiara Ferrari each portrayed the younger Loren.

In 1981, she became the first female celebrity to launch her own perfume, ‘Sophia’, and a brand of eyewear soon followed.

In 1982, while in Italy, she made headlines after serving an 18-day prison sentence on tax evasion charges – a fact that failed to hamper her popularity or career.

In fact, Bill Moore, then employed at Pickle Packers International advertising department, sent her a pink pickle-shaped trophy for being “the prettiest lady in the prettiest pickle”. In 2013, the supreme court of Italy cleared her of the charges.

She acted infrequently during the 1980s and in 1981 turned down the role of Alexis Carrington in the television series Dynasty.

Although she was set to star in 13 episodes of CBS’s Falcon Crest in 1984 as Angela Channing’s half-sister Francesca Gioberti, negotiations fell through at the last moment and the role went to Gina Lollobrigida instead. Loren preferred devoting more time to raising her sons.

Later career

In 1991, Loren received the Academy Honorary Award for her contributions to world cinema and was declared “one of the world cinema’s treasures”. In 1995, she received the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award.

She presented Federico Fellini with his honorary Oscar in April 1993. In 2009, Loren stated on Larry King Live that Fellini had planned to direct her in a film shortly before his death in 1993.

Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Loren was selective about choosing her films and ventured into various areas of business, including cookbooks, eyewear, jewelry, and perfume.

She received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Robert Altman’s film Ready to Wear (1994), co-starring Julia Roberts.

In 1994, a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California Walk of Stars was dedicated to her.

In Grumpier Old Men (1995), Loren played a femme fatale opposite Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon, and Ann-Margret.

The film was a box-office success and became Loren’s biggest US hit in years.

At the 20th Moscow International Film Festival in 1997, she was awarded an Honorable Prize for contribution to cinema. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Loren among the greatest female stars of Golden Age of Hollywood cinema.

In 2001, Loren received a Special Grand Prix of the Americas Award at the Montreal World Film Festival for her body of work.She filmed two projects in Canada during this time: the independent film Between Strangers (2002), directed by her son Edoardo and co-starring Mira Sorvino, and the television miniseries Lives of the Saints (2004).

In 2009, after five years off the set and 14 years since she starred in a prominent US theatrical film, Loren starred in Rob Marshall’s film version of Nine, based on the Broadway musical that tells the story of a director whose midlife crisis causes him to struggle to complete his latest film;

he is forced to balance the influences of numerous formative women in his life, including his deceased mother. Loren was Marshall’s first and only choice for the role.

The film also stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Penélope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard, and Nicole Kidman. As a part of the cast, she received her first nomination for a Screen Actors Guild Award.

In 2010, Loren played her own mother in a two-part Italian television miniseries about her early life, directed by Vittorio Sindoni with Margareth Madè as Loren, entitled La Mia Casa È Piena di Specchi , based on the memoir by her sister Maria.

In July 2013, Loren made her film comeback in an Italian adaptation of Jean Cocteau’s 1930 play The Human Voice (La Voce Umana), which charts the breakdown of a woman who is left by her lover – with her youngest son, Edoardo Ponti, as director.

Filming took under a month during July in various locations in Italy, including Rome and Naples. It was Loren’s first significant feature film since Nine.

Loren received a star on 16 November 2017, at Almeria Walk of Fame due to his intervention in Bianco, rosso e…. She received the Almería Tierra de Cine award.

In September 1999, Loren filed a lawsuit against 79 adult websites for posting altered nude photos of her on the internet.

Loren is a Roman Catholic. Her primary residence has been in Geneva, Switzerland, since late 2006. She also owns homes in Naples and Rome.

Loren is an ardent fan of the football club S.S.C. Napoli. In May 2007, when the team was third in Serie B, she (then age 72) told the Gazzetta dello Sport that she would do a striptease if the team won.

Affair with Cary Grant

Loren and Cary Grant co-starred in Houseboat (1958). Grant’s wife Betsy Drake wrote the original script, and Grant originally intended that she would star with him.

After he began an affair with Loren while filming The Pride and the Passion (1957), Grant arranged for Loren to take Drake’s place with a rewritten script for which Drake did not receive credit.

The affair ended in bitterness before The Pride and the Passion’s filming ended, causing problems on the Houseboat set.

Grant hoped to resume the relationship, but Loren agreed to marry Carlo Ponti, instead.

Marriage and family

Loren first met Ponti in 1950, when she was 16 and he was 37.

Though Ponti had been long separated from his first wife, Giuliana, he was not legally divorced when Loren married him by proxy (two male lawyers stood in for them) in Mexico on 17 September 1957.

The couple had their marriage annulled in 1962 to escape bigamy charges, but continued to live together.

In 1965, they became French citizens after their application was approved by then French President Georges Pompidou. Ponti then obtained a divorce from Giuliana in France, allowing him to marry Loren on 9 April 1966.

They had two children, Carlo Ponti Jr., born on 29 December 1968, and Edoardo Ponti, born on 6 January 1973.Loren’s daughters-in-law are Sasha Alexander and Andrea Meszaros. Loren has four grandchildren. Loren remained married to Carlo Ponti until his death on 10 January 2007 of pulmonary complications.

Fake infos


Un photomontage très partagé sur les réseaux sociaux met en parallèle l’incendie d’un commissariat de police dans “Les Simpson” et une photo d’un immeuble en feu, présenté comme le commissariat de Minneapolis incendié durant les émeutes qui ont suivi la mort de George Floyd. Ces publications laissent entendre que les créateurs de la série avaient prédit le décès de cet américain et les manifestations qui ont suivi. C’est doublement faux: l’image est tirée d’un épisode de la célèbre série dans lequel aucune émeute n’est mentionnée. Et la photo qui l’accompagne ne montre pas l’incendie du commissariat de Minneapolis.

Cette image tirée des Simpson ne montre pas une scène d’émeute liée à des violences policière

En haut: une capture d’écran d’un épisode du dessin animé américain “Les Simpson”. On y voit un bâtiment en feu. Un panneau indique qu’il s’agit du commissariat de Springfield.

En bas: une photo virale d’un immeuble qui brûle, présentée depuis le 28 mai sur les réseaux sociaux comme montrant l’incendie du commissariat de police de Minneapolis où travaillaient les policiers accusés du meurtre de George Floyd.

Ce montage a été largement été partagé sur Facebook et Twitter depuis le 30 mai 

George Floyd, 46 ans, est mort le 25 mai à Minneapolis au cours de son interpellation après qu’un policier blanc a plaqué son genou sur son cou pendant pendant 8 minutes et 46 secondes, selon les éléments de la plainte criminelle contre l’agent impliqué. 

D’abord inculpé d’homicide involontaire, le policier Derek Chauvin a vu le chef d’accusation requalifié en meurtre le 4 juin. Il devait comparaître devant la justice pour la première fois le 8 juin.

Le décès de George Floyd a déclenché une vague de manifestations contre le racisme et les violences policières à travers les Etats-Unis, qui s’est ensuite étendue à la planète.

Le week-end dernier, des milliers de personnes ont manifesté à travers le monde.

George Floyd, 46 ans, est mort le 25 mai à Minneapolis au cours de son interpellation après qu’un policier blanc a plaqué son genou sur son cou pendant pendant 8 minutes et 46 secondes, selon les éléments de la plainte criminelle contre l’agent impliqué. 

D’abord inculpé d’homicide involontaire, le policier Derek Chauvin a vu le chef d’accusation requalifié en meurtre le 4 juin. Il devait comparaître devant la justice pour la première fois le 8 juin.

Le décès de George Floyd a déclenché une vague de manifestations contre le racisme et les violences policières à travers les Etats-Unis, qui s’est ensuite étendue à la planète.

La photo reprise dans les publications montrant un bâtiment dévoré par les flammes a abondamment circulé à partir du 28 mai sur les réseaux sociaux en français, espagnol et anglais. Elle était présentée comme un cliché du commissariat de police incendié.

L’AFP a vérifié cette image le 2 juin et retrouvé son origine

Il s’agit en réalité de l’incendie, le 28 mai au matin, d’un bâtiment en construction, un projet d’immeuble à loyers modérés de six étages et de 189 appartements, relaté notamment par le Star Tribune, un média local.

Cet épisode des Simpson ne montre pas une scène d’émeute

La scène de l’incendie dans l’épisode des Simpson n’a par ailleurs aucun rapport avec une manifestation ou une émeute.

Elle intervient dans l’épisode 6 de la saison 11 de la série. Intitulé “Homer perd la boule”, cet épisode montre notamment l’emblématique père de la famille Simpson pris dans une notoriété aussi brève qu’inattendue, avant de replonger dans l’anonymat.

Dans l’épisode, Homer croise en voiture le chemin du chef de la police, le chef Wiggum, réputé pour son incompétence.

La séquence où le commissariat brûle sert à le ridiculiser car il ne s’aperçoit pas que son propre commissariat est en train de brûler dans son dos, avant que Homer ne le lui fasse remarquer.

Il n’y a donc aucune prédiction liée aux manifestations qui secouent les Etats-Unis depuis le 26 mai.

Les Simpson prédisent l’avenir ?

Ce n’est pas la première fois que les internautes prêtent aux créateurs de ce dessin animé culte, qui s’inspirent souvent d’événements ou de personnages réels, le pouvoir de prédire l’avenir.

Peu après la mort de George Floyd, un dessin a également circulé sur les réseaux sociaux. On y voit le chef Wiggum plaquer son genou sur le cou d’un homme noir au sol, dans l’exacte même posture que Derek Chauvin avec George Floyd.

Comme vérifiée par l’AFP le 3 juin, l’image n’est pas tirée d’un épisode datant des années 1990 mais était un dessin réalisé par un artiste italien pour sensibiliser à la mort de George Floyd. 

En mars, une autre rumeur avait attribué au Simpson l’annonce du nouveau coronavirus dans un épisode datant de 1990.

Cette affirmation a été vérifiée par l’AFP: il s’agissant en réalité d’images extraites d’un épisode qui avaient été retouchées.
