In his letter, Grand Corps Malade finds Fabien Leceuvre
Me who thought you would like my song and thank you.
I turn your radio horrors into a festive piece and I receive a formal notice.
I thought you'd be grateful if I found the right way to apologize a lot more effectively than your six half-lines on Twitter.
You accuse me of inciting hatred: the last straw! Frankly, only your words, the ones that come out of your own mouth, could cause such an epidermal reaction. My song is all about good humor, peace, tolerance, and during festivals this summer, people (beautiful or not) sang and danced to it like never before. ”

“I think we have to stop there.
You missed your first media platform, you seem to me badly embarked on the second.
So come dance to this lovely song, accept it for what it stands for, and be proud to have inspired it.
Unless you don't find me handsome enough? ”

Fabien Leceuvre believes that he is the co-author of the song?
“No intellectual property monopoly is possible on the basis of an opinion expressed without the slightest artistic expression ... unlike Fabien Marsaud's text. This text, like his music, constitutes as much a work of art in its own right as the free expression of an artist who has the most absolute right, in the form that suits him as long as he respects the right, to respond to words. public, proven and unambiguous by Fabien Lecoeuvre. The law has been respected in all its aspects, with all due respect. "
