Messi reaches 200M followers on Instagram
He becomes only the second athlete to do so after Cristiano Ronaldo who has 280M.
Instead of celebrating it he asked his followers to be the change in fight against only abuse
He said “I’ve seen that I have just reached 200M followers on Instagram, but given what is happening today, I’m not going to take it as a reason to celebrate.
I think the time had come to give importance to the people behind each profile to realize that behind each account there is a person of flesh and blood.
We live together seeing and experiencing abuse, more of it and worst each time on each network, without anyone doing anything to stop it.
I will like you the 200M people who follow me, to become 200M motivations to make social media networks safe and respectful places“
