A man has landed French President, Emmanuel Macron a dirty slap in the face.
The embarrassing moment shows Macron, wearing a black mask, approaching a crowd of people standing on the other side of a partition. Macron appears to pat the forearm of the closest person in the crowd, who is clad in a green T-shirt and a white mask. As Marcon looks to be moving down the line of onlookers, the person moves to slap the president in the face.
Two men have reportedly been arrested in the wake of the incident. The suspects are in custody and French authorities are investigating the case, according to NBC.
One person was arrested for the slap itself, while the other suspect’s role is yet unclear, NBC reported.
