French Journalists Suspended over Alleged Cyberbullying

Tuesday, 12 February 2019 06:38 AM EST

PARIS (AP) — Several French journalists have been suspended for allegedly coordinating online harassment through a private Facebook group.

French newspaper Liberation and cultural magazine Les Inrockuptibles announced on Monday they have suspended three journalists working for them, including the creator of the group.

Liberation last week reported that some members of the group named "League of LOL" allegedly harassed other web users with sexist, homophobic and racist insults, mostly between 2009 and 2012.

The group has been dubbed by French media a "boys club" in reference to its apparent macho culture.

In recent days, several people including some female journalists have publicly accused group members of having cyberbullied them, over a year after the #MeToo movement showed that victims of harassment often felt defenseless and kept silent for years.
