Max Verstappen supports colleagues who ‘black out’ social media channels

“I support the #enoughisenough campaign this weekend,” the Red Bull Racing driver wrote on his twitter account. “Together with my fellow drivers in Formula 1, we support the call for social media platforms to take their responsibility. Online abuse and hatred must stop. ”

English football clubs

Earlier, Premier League clubs and other paid classes in England – both male and female – announced that they would shut down their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts this weekend to emphasize that the platforms should do more against digital misconduct. In recent months, many footballers, including Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, have been treated racially.

The English rugby association and cycling association have already joined, as has the European football association UEFA. “I thought it was important to participate because there is too often abuse, hatred and racism online,” Formula 1 driver George Russell said in a video message. “I feel it is my duty to participate.” Lando Norris has already joined Russell, with Lewis Hamilton said to consider joining.
