Frenchwoman in Doghouse for Ad Advising Muslims of Her ("Unclean") Dog

Another French actress has landed in hot water with government authorities in connection with the country's Muslims — this time well-known singer and actress Marie Laforêt. Her trouble began when she advised potential Muslim employees that she had a dog that might offend them should they work for her.

That’s the latest from France, where Muslims have, over the past several years, repeatedly sent actress Brigitte Bardot to the doghouse because of her comments about Muslim immigrants.

 

Another French actress has landed in hot water with government authorities in connection with the country's Muslims — this time well-known singer and actress Marie Laforêt (as seen in 1973 photo). Her trouble began when she advised potential Muslim employees that she had a dog that might offend them should they work for her.
