Thierry Henry to quit social media, gives reason

Arsenal football club legend, Thierry Henry has announced he will disable his social media accounts until it’s being regulated.

The former France captain on Friday, March 26 said this after so many black footballers including Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Tyrone Mings complained about racist abuse they receive on social media.

Henry wrote: “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 infringe 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 harrass without consequence and still remain anonymous.

“Until this changes, I will be disabling my accounts across all social platforms. I’m hoping this happens soon.”
