In a statement, relayed by Midi Libre, he explained that he had taken this decision in order to "guarantee respect for public order." Dieudonné's tour is scheduled until January 2024.

Laurent Nuñez, who was able to consult the script, highlighted "attacks on human dignity". Dieudonné responded by promising to "delete" these passages "for the sake of appeasement".
