Henry said it was far too easy for anybody to create a social media account and start to harass and bully people on social media.
In the post Thierry Henry said “From tomorrow morning I will be removing myself from social media until the people in power are able to regulate their platforms with the same vigour and ferocity that they currently do when you infringe copyright. The Sheer volume of racism, bully and resulting mental torture to individuals is too toxic to ignore.”
“There has to be some accountability. It is far too easy to create an account, use it to bully and harass without consequence and still remain anonymous. Until the changes, I will disabling my accounts across all social platforms. I’m hoping this happens soon.”
