Cameroonian novelist Calixthe Beyala loses control during a live TV bradcast, treats journalists as "coughed" and "sexually obsessed"

On Sunday evening,19.February 2017,  viewers in Cameroon watched and meditated a media clash between Calixthe Beyala and Cameroonian journalists charged with interviewing the novelist.

Invited to a program deemed to be a highlight of Sunday night television, with the evocative name, the "Arena", facing sharp interviewers, impertinent and annoying to the limit, the  Cameroonian novelist, lost her cool.

The Franco-Cameroonian novelist, offered viewers a spectacle unworthy of her international reputation, an incident closed to barbarism and savagery.

Besides the use of street and vulgar language, the Francaphone author of« L’Homme qui m’offrait le ciel »translated as "The Man who offered me heaven", visibly irritated by the pugnacity of the questions addressed to her, displayed a very hysterical character. A very contemptuous and condescending attitude towards panellists and viewers.

As if her choice of words was not enough, Calixthe Beyala stood up, pulled out her microphone, and threatened to leave the set, before sitting down after numerous pleads from the journalists.

After the show, Calixthe Beyala, the arrogant novelist spoke outrightly, "facing the savages, I am known to be more wild. I did a chainsaw massacre. I hope that the guys will learn to make the distinction between an interview and gratuitous aggression, "she lamented, trying to explain that these journalists had transformed" television "into" piggery ".

The attitude of Calixthe Beyala creates controversy within the francophone viewers. Some believe that the Cameroonian novelist was pushed to the limit by the journalists who played the inquisitors into her private life.
