Gerald Darmanin, France's Minister of the Interior, has criticised both Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe.
The World Cup-winning pair questioned police brutality in the case that saw Michel Zecler, a black music producer, arrested in Paris recently.
"France hurts me," Griezmann wrote on social media, while Mbappe said "STOP racism" on Instagram.
Darmanin, though, had his own thoughts to give.
"France hurts me when I don't hear any reaction from millionaire footballers about the 98 police officers injured on Saturday," he said on RTL, without mentioning Griezmann or Mbappe by name.
"Some in this country have selective dignity."
Zecler was arrested and brutally beaten, while he also claims that police used racist insults against him.
