Who is comedian Arthur Egloff accused of sexual assault?


What happened on July 28, 2017 during a birthday party organized in Brussels?

Aged 34, the French actor who lives most of the time in Belgium, evolves mainly in the middle of the theater. He writes and directs plays with Damien Chapelle. I don’t give a fuck is his first film. It was during a preview of the film in Brussels that accusations of sexual assault were publicly launched by “women present in the audience”. One of the spectators accused the comedian of having ” sexually assaulted several of her friends while a second woman introduced herself as a ” victim of Arthur Engloff”.

« For the time being, it is impossible to know if this case has a link with the accusations of sexual assault launched (…) during the preview “, precise The Parisian.
