The science popularizer, who is followed by 1.2 million subscribers on his YouTube channel "

DirtyBiology

", is also the subject of a preliminary investigation by the Lyon prosecutor's office, the latter confirmed.

This investigation was opened following a complaint for sexual harassment, filed according to Mediapart at the end of June by Clothilde Chamussy, who hosts the YouTube channel "

Passé sauvage

" (127,000 subscribers).

The influencer responded to the accusations relayed by Mediapart in a video posted on his channel in mid-November.

I have a sometimes messy love life, and sometimes I also make big redneck jokes, but the article paints a dishonest portrait of me;

he builds a toxic character with insinuations and truncated quotes

”, he declares there, denying in particular having raped a young woman in 2016.
