Five days after arousing controversy by interrupting Gemini to hold a speech that caused some unease in the artistic community and among the public, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge commented on the event, in an interview on the program “Le monde upside down,” Friday.
The host admitted to wanting revenge on Guy A. Lepage and Louis Morrissette, who made fun of him following the Medicago saga.
“It’s a squabble of grown-ups in a schoolyard, in front of everyone. It was not necessary,” explains Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge.
The latter assures that his Sunday outing was primarily intended to encourage young people to go and vote. Guided by his desire for revenge, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge then seized the opportunity to settle his accounts.
“I didn’t do it the right way,” he admits.
The host claims to have made peace with Louis Morissette and Guy A. Lepage. On the set of Stéphan Bureau, he also wanted to apologize to the children of the two artists.
Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge also said he was sorry to have interrupted the segment on documentaries.
“I had no idea I was interrupting this at all and I’m sorry for doing this”
The host also returned to the Medicago saga, which cost him his partnership with Hyundai.
The one who claims to have always encouraged respect and kindness finds it difficult to explain why he was demolished on many platforms because of his choice to wait for the Medicago vaccine. He felt attacked simply because he thought differently from others.
“O *** that it hurt me”, he proclaimed to “Le monde en l’envers”, visibly moved.
Responding to a question from Stéphan Bureau, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge mentioned the possibility that he was suffering from overwork. His mental health has been shaken over the past year, he admits.
“It has been going on for at least a year, so I need to treat myself. I have to take care of myself. I have to take a break, ”explains the host.
