Thierry Henry to leave social media due to lack of regulation over racism and bullying


Enough is Enough

Arsenal and France legend has decided that the time has come to take a stand against the lack of regulation on social media platforms and has announced that he will be removing himself tomorrow morning.

The Premier League icon believes that the companies do not invest the same energy in the fight against racism, as they do copyright infringement.

Henry writes,

“Hi Guys, 

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 fringe copyright. The sheer volume of racism, bullying 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 this changes, I will be disabling my accounts across all social platforms. I’m hoping his happens soon.” 

We at 101, like almost everyone who uses social media, believe that more needs to be done to clean up the platforms and that no one should ever be subject to the toxicity that exists on them.

It will be interesting to see if others take up the cause, as ultimately that is what will make those in charge listen.

Not Alone

101 covered the recent incidents of abuse of Manchester United’s Fred, which made headlines.

Fred is by no means the only player to receive abuse on line and is unlikely to be the last unless something changes and we hope, like Henry, that it does sooner rather than later.
