Thierry Henry has announced his decision to quit using social media until users are held accountable for their posts.
The Arsenal and France legend made the announcement on his channels on Friday morning.
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.”
