French President Emmanuel Macron was thrown with an egg while attending a food event in Lyon.
The egg “bounced off Macron’s shoulder and burst on the floor right in front of me,” Florence Lago, a journalist for French publication Lyon Mag ,reported.
Lyon Mag shared a video of the incident at the SIRHA food and hospitality fair on its Twitter account.
The clip showed Macron walks through crowd when an egg hits his shoulder and bounces off without breaking.
The camera later panned to officials detaining a man in the crowd.
Two bodyguards were seen immediately getting closer to the French President to protect his shoulders.
Meanwhile, a man was taken away from the scene by other bodyguards.
Reporters at the scene heard Macron saying, “if he has something to tell me, then he can come.”
Second Incident in 3 Months
In June, Macron was slapped in the face by a man as he was greeting the public in a small town in southeastern France.
He then denounced “violence” and “stupidity”. The man was ordered to serve four months in jail.
The slap prompted a wide show of support for France’s head of state from politicians across the ideological spectrum.
