On social networks, the mayor of Reims, Arnaud Robinet, responded after this "black day in Reims". “As mayor, but most of all as Rémois, I want to express my anger and fury about the behavior of the rioters present at the Yellow Vest event this afternoon. Nothing, no claim can legitimize violence of such. The city council explains that these first thoughts go to all the traders who have targeted them. I spent part of the afternoon on their side to assess the damage and tell me about my support. "The elected officer continues by explaining that he" is also thinking about the police, the national police as an urban police force, who were sent to keep order through the afternoon. I extend my full support to the French teams of the Ardenne Champagne Bleu. To attack the press is attacked by democracy. Finally, I think of all the Remois who have seen these unacceptable views. I would like to thank the City's agents who are always working to clean up the damage and allow the sacred run smoothly. We will now encrypt all degradations and ask the state for compensation. "
