Brigitte Bardot fined for inciting racial hatred

French actress turned animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot has been convicted of inciting racial hatred and ordered to pay 5,000 euros (3,300 pounds) — the fourth such fine for the former sex symbol since 1997.


The Paris court sentenced Bardot, 69, on Thursday for remarks made in her book “A Scream in the Silence”, an outspoken attack on gays, immigrants and the jobless which shocked France last year.


In the book, she laments the “Islamisation of France” and the “underground and dangerous infiltration of Islam”.
