French author and chronicler Yann Moix admitted in an interview to Marie Claire French, to promote his latest book, that women over 50 are "too old" to love and "invisible" to him, and criticism does not wait.
Yann Moix, 50, told the magazine that she "couldn't" love a woman's age and prefers dating younger women, especially those of Asian origin – Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.
"I prefer organs of younger women, that's all. Point. The body of a 25-year-old woman is extraordinary. The body of a 50-year-old woman is not," he said, adding that "it can be sad and discouraging" for the women he goes out with, but the "Asian guy is rich enough, big enough and infinite not to be ashamed."
Moix's comments have attracted global rebellion, especially in social networks. For example, 52-year-old journalist and author Colombe Schneck has published a photo that has since been deleted from the Instagram account and shows the tail and message "voila, the belly of a 52 year old woman … you [Yann Moix] You don't know what you're missing. "
Laura Halley, from the political part of the British Embassy in Paris, wished for Twitter a good year for the sexists. Others have posted pictures of 50-year-old movie stars such as Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston or Monica Bellucci, to challenge the argument that older women are not attractive.
Former first lady and journalist Valérie Trierweiler has dedicated the cover of an issue of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo – for a terrorist attack four years ago – to the author who has won several awards for his work.
Responding to criticism, on Monday, the author and director told RTL that he could not help but as younger women. "I like who I like, and I don't have to answer the flavor," Moix told the radio. "50-year-old woman does not see me either. They have more to do than deal with a neurotic who writes and reads all day. It is not easy to be with me," added the chronicle who has already professed in other circumstances to be a victim of child abuse by their parents.
