- A great recognition
When the French internet comes to the Grévin museum
From todayit is possible to discover the wax statue of Squeezie and her dog Natsu at the Grévin museumthe famous Parisian wax museum. A real event for the French web, since Squeezie is the first personality from the internet world to be granted such an honor.
For good or bad, the news did not fail to react. Squeezie recently responded to his detractors, not without a touch of humor.
I find it too funny to have a statue of you that is messed up (laughs), but no, it is generally successful. (…) I saw a lot of people being a bit like “ah yeah? But where from? etc…Meritocracy eh, France, we know. (…) Many people thought that it There was historical stuff at the Grévin museum, but it’s not historical stuff, it’s people who are in the French cultural landscape (…) – Squeezie.
A great recognition
Beyond his amused reaction, the videographer also shared his point of view on the legitimacy of the creation of his wax double. According to him, it is a “beautiful recognition” on the part of the management of the Grévin, which honors the world of the internet and the personalities of the French-speaking web.
The Grévin museum, which is run by people of a certain age, I say to myself “that’s it”, even they recognize that people on the Internet – streamers, Youtubers, tiktokers, all that – (do) part of culture today (…) I’m thinking of Léna, even streamers like Amine, Kamel (…) in the years that follow, I think these are people who will have a serious place there and I think it’s cool, it’s a great recognition for our community once again (…) There are plenty of names that, in my opinion, would have their place there (…)
Squeezie goes on to say that this invite is “super rewarding, obviously.” This event is therefore a great step taken for the French web and the youtuber, which has not always been recognized at its fair value. We think in particular of his passage on the set of Thierry Ardissonan intervention during which the presenter had ridiculed the young videographer.
