PARIS (AP) — A video of French President Emmanuel Macron strongly admonishing a teenager who called him by a nickname is going viral on social media.

A teenager asked Macron "How's it going, Manu?" — using a diminutive for Macron's first name — at a ceremony Monday for the 78th anniversary of Charles De Gaulle's historic appeal for armed resistance against Nazi tyranny.

Macron responded "call me Mr. President of the republic or sir." He then added: "the day you want to start a revolution, get a degree and learn to feed yourself, OK? You can start lecturing others then."

Macron tweeted a video of the discussion, sparking a lot of comments Tuesday. Some people criticized the French leader for his perceived arrogance while others approved of his demand for respect.
