Allegations of sexual misconduct against several women: Philippe Bond withdraws from public life

BET À DAY

Comedian Philippe Bond announces his retirement from public life following an article in La Presse reporting allegations of sexual misconduct against several women.  

So he quit his radio show and put an end to his shows. He wishes to do so “out of respect for his collaborators and his employers”. 

He reacted on Instagram. 

“Following the article in La Presse which appeared today, I am appalled by what I have just read. I do not recognize the person who is described in this article. 

Out of respect for my collaborators and my employers who have worked with me for years and because I want to save them from having to respond to an avalanche of questions from journalists, I withdraw from everything, as much from public life and from radio and shows. 

I have to protect and take care of my loved ones but above all I have to be there for my children and my wife. Thinking about what they will have to go through with me upsets me, because there is nothing more important to me than them, ”says the comedian.

These revelations come days after comedian Thomas Levac accused Bond of being “a rapist” live on YouTube while recording a podcast. 

Philip Bond had assured not to be an aggressor. 

 “Today I get up and I cry loud and clear my innocence, he writes. All the relationships I have had have been consensual, I have NEVER been an aggressor, NEVER will be and I will NEVER accept being accused of it without defending myself”, he wrote on Facebook.&nbsp ;
