Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry says he will be removing himself from social media because of racism and bullying across platforms.

 

The 43-year-Old Henry, posted a message to his 2.3m followers on Twitter on Friday saying the problem was "too toxic to ignore".

 

 

He 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...."

 

Henry added that there had 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," wrote the Frenchman.

 

"The sheer volume of racism, bullying and resulting mental torture to individuals is too toxic to ignore."
