“It was a scream of alarm to the parents. And he filmed them and asked them to stop. We put the little ones on the line for half an hour and we asked them to write an apology letter to Nasdas”, explains Sergio from the influencers team. “It would have been hypocritical of me to only film the good sides of my neighborhood, explains Nasdas itself. I took the risk of being told that what I was doing was not right. But it created controversy because it was picked up on Twitter. With Louis Aliot, I actually feel like I’m not home anymore. I must at least bear the costs, it will be 15,000 euros more for the taxpayers ”.
