“I got sexually harassed by French dj in London who I helped in the past by promoting his music,” DJ Soda wrote in her social media post. “He made a vulgar comment about one particular part of my body. He said it was a just a joke after I told him that I was upset by his comment.”
“I’ve had so many unimaginable cases of sexu al harassment by many people in my life, but I’ve endured them for fear of being retaliated against for being a celebrity, but I don’t want to be hurt anymore.”
In the conversation, DJ Soda told the man that it’s not for him, but he insisted that he wants it.
The sexual harassment stopped when the 31-year-old DJ replied, “WTF dude it’s sexual harassment, have manners please.”
Hugel insisted his advances were a “joke,” adding, “don’t take it too serious.”

Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
