Le Monde Magazine creates controversy with ‘constructivist’ cover of Macron

French newspaper Le Monde faced huge criticism on Sunday after it published a highly provocative cover of French President Emmanuel Macron for its Saturday M magazine.

Le Monde was forced to issue an apology over its cover for M magazine published on December 29, after facing a barrage of criticism from readers.

The cover featured a black and white photograph of Macron, with an image of Yellow Vest protestors surging towards the Arc de Triomphe. There are bands of deep red behind Macron and the M is written in Gothic font. The headline reads: ‘From inauguration to Yellow Vests – The Champs-Élysées theatre of Macron’s power’.

On social networks, many suggested the magazine was drawing a clear visualparallel between Emmanuel Macron and Adolf Hitler. The magazine insisted that it “obviously” had no such comparison in mind.
