Why not Lagardère for Person of the Year?
The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 62-year-old business man, as a 2023 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.
“What makes Lagardère so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the business man have already been named ‘French Of The Year’ by some major French newspapers and even ‘Boulogne-Billancourt Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Boulogne-Billancourt (Arnaud Lagardère's hometown).
Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year
A representative for the business man was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:
“Arnaud Lagardère Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 20 Mar 2023
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveArnaud”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 20 Mar 2023
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Arnaud Lagardère?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 20 Mar 2023
Could 2023 officially be the Year of Arnaud Lagardère?
Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2023 Person of the Year.
