This Thursday March 16, 2023, Cyril Hanouna received William Theviot on the set of “Touche pas à mon poste”. Known for an outstanding pianist, the young man with Asperger’s syndrome has been under fire for several hours after giving an interview to Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, an interview published on his YouTube channel and mainly focused on music. and art in general.
Harassed on social networks, William Theviot tried to explain himself live on C8: “First of all, I would like to say that the angle of debate from which I was invited is extremely difficult to unravel. I am not a polemicist, I am not familiar with the exercise of media communication, I am a pianist and I am committed to the cause of Asperger’s autism and disability, in particular invisible” he advanced. Although Patrick Poivre d’Arvor is currently being singled out because of numerous accusations of rape and sexual assault, the young man claims to have agreed to speak with him in order to draw attention to the condition of the people with disabilities in France.
“It’s extremely difficult to talk about it”
Very moved, the pianist ended up collapsing live: “I’m going to make a confession to you, that’s what I’m going to talk about. I don’t know how you’re going to take it. JI know that you have audience requirements, but I think that talking about autism, of their representativeness in culture and the media, can be more socially constructive than talking about it” he chanted .
Reassured by Cyril Hanouna who said he was happy to give him a platform to raise awareness about disability, William Theviot continued his momentum: “How far do you have to go to talk about disability on a TV set? This is where I am! VSIt’s extremely delicate to talk about it when it’s not sequences that make the buzz, when it’s not autism month!”.
“Maybe I’m making myself look ridiculous, but if it can save a few heads, it’s not for nothing that I would have come, even if I break my image here and cry about it, we must save these people ” concluded the guest in tears.
