French 'Hypocrital Sick Jerk of the Month' award goes to Joey Starr

A Jerk
I had to rub my eyes and clean my glasses to be sure that I had understood this story correctly. French rap artist Joey Starr has filed a complaint against a woman who, he alleges, slapped him in the face in a supermarket. He claims that she was drunk. He was shopping in Paris' VIII Arrondissment when, a police source says, he was attacked by "a very drunk woman who slapped him."

Well, I don't know if I'd go so far as to file a complaint about it. After all, being slapped by a drunken woman in a shop, whilst being a disagreeable experience, is hardly going to put me in hospital now is it. Besides, I have much better things to do than take drunks to court.

On the other hand, some people would file a complaint, and that's fair enough. Violence is a crime after all.


For those who may not know, Starr has been in a Police Commissariat before. Here's why.

1999. 2 months in prison for violence against an air hostess.
1999. 6 months in prison for injuries he inflicted upon his former girlfriend.
2000. €1,000 fine for possession of a pitbull which attacked another dog.
2000. €12,000 fine for violence against a person in the street.
2001. 2001. Prison and a fine for possession of cannabis, a 6.35 automatic pistol and dealing in cocaine.
2002. Guilty of cruelty to an animal.
2003. 4 months for spitting on policemen.
2005. False driving documents.
2009. 3 months and a €2000 fine for domestic violence, against his girlfriend.
2009. 2 years prison (18 months suspended) for attacking a car with an axe. He was also placed under a committal order.

And this 'man' goes crying to the police because a woman slaps him in the face?

Joey Starr is a first-class jerk (crétin). Voila.

  1. I like some rap, but a little goes a long way.
    It is too bad Jacques Villeret, Colluche... are not around. We could have had lots of laugh with this "first class jerk".
    (I have never heard of Joey Starr).
