Men of a certain age will recall Brigitte Bardot as a sex siren par excellence in French cinema during the 1960s. In later years Ms. Bardot took up animal rights as her cause, and then resistance to mass immigration into France. The latter activism has caused her to be prosecuted several times.
In the following pair of videos Ms. Bardot shows her support for the Yellow Vest protesters by donning a yellow vest and speaking to the press.
Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.
