“It’s hard enough to see that my mental health, my safety and my career have been extremely compromised two years later [sic] worse that I see his face everywhere,” she wrote in a post on the social network on Saturday night.

Maripier Morin recently embarked on a promotional tour for the film Arlette, his first role in several denunciations, including that of Safia Nolin.

In 2020, she slammed the actress for already making inappropriate advances and racist comments, and for biting her thigh in a bar two years earlier. Maripier Morin was then dropped by the artist community.

Safia Nolin claims to have suffered the full brunt of her denunciation, which continues to this day and sparks much hatred.

“It’s terrible what she’s getting. It looks like we are in the Middle Ages and a woman is being thrown with stones in the public square,” responds Nellie Brière, popularizer of the digital.

In her opinion, social networks have disrupted public space by creating a platform for voices and opinions that are out of shape.

She compares Safia Nolin to a “pioneer who may be too fast for many,” which could explain the backlash.

“And she doesn’t have many walls to protect herself, she believes, questioning the support of online public figures. Institutions need to wake up to help these people who are left completely behind. That makes no sense. »

role reversal

Mélanie Lemay, co-founder of Quebec Against Sexual Violence, thinks Safia Nolin is “very brave” to make such an appearance on social networks.

“There comes a time when we can no longer remain silent, when we tell ourselves that it cannot get any worse than the silence that is imposed on us,” emphasizes the doctoral student in sexology.

She sees the controversy as more of a role reversal, as if Maripier had been the victim of Safia rather than the other way around.

“We urge the public to stop defining Maripier on the basis of this denunciation, while not giving Safia an opportunity to do the same. And at the same time we blame him for not moving on while the violence against Safia never stopped,” she notes.
