Since the start of the pandemic, the young comedian has charmed more than one with his few humorous videos, his many characters and his videos in live on Instagram. Following the receipt of numerous hate messages, Arnaud Soly takes a break from social media to “reconnect with reality.” “

It is this Monday August 3 that Arnaud has posted a message on his Instagram account and his Facebook page concerning the last few weeks, which have seemed more difficult:

“On a larger scale, social networks have also been the place for necessary and courageous speeches – one need only think of the anti-racist movements and the most recent wave of denunciations. “

“Except that I also feel that social networks are spaces that fuel hatred to the detriment of listening,” he continues.

It is moreover following one of his last capsules, the one concerning the wearing of the mask, that he received many negative messages:

Ma humorous video about wearing a mask generated thousands of violent comments, which I believe is a testament to some collective suffering. “

Arnaud Soly had also shown some of these messages in story Instagram, before deleting them, so as not to incite hatred.

He seems to be saying that these words have hurt him on several occasions:

“Plus, my addiction to social media means I spend hours absorbed in snappy comments, and it undermines my morale. “

He therefore made the decision to withdraw for a while:

“So I’m going to remove social media from my phone for the rest of August to free my mind. “

Gallery: DNA tests: when science brings families together (Plaisirs Santé)

Walter Macfarlane, 76, and Alan Robinson, 74, have known each other for over 60 years. They grew up a few miles from each other in Honolulu, Hawaii, and have been friends since the sixth grade class. In high school, they were on the same American football team. They have remained so close that their respective children call them Uncle Walter and Uncle Alan. So imagine their surprise when they found out they were brothers! “It seemed so natural,” Walter says, speaking of the revelation. We knew each other so well. ” This discovery is however the fruit of chance. Walter, a retired math and physical education teacher, knew his family tree was complex. He was born during World War II. His young mother was not married and could not raise her son on her own. So the family claimed that Walter was his grandmother's son and his mother was his sister. Walter didn't find out the truth until after college, and even then his mother (and no one, for that matter) never revealed his father's identity to him. In 2016, Cindy Macfarlane-Flores, Walter's daughter, suggested that she use one of those genealogical DNA test kits that were starting to spread. When she logged in to to find out the result, it appeared that a certain Robby 737, another user, shared enough genetic characteristics with his father that they were half-siblings. Cindy asked her parents if they knew of anyone who might have adopted this pseudonym, and her mother immediately thought of Uncle Alan, Walter's friend: his nickname was Robby and he had flown Aloha 737s. Airlines. Is it possible? Walter wondered. Ten minutes later, when he finally reached him, Alan confirmed to him that he was indeed Robby 737! “I wanted to stay cool,” recalls Walter, “but I was so excited I was afraid to explode. I took a casual tone: “I think we're brothers, you and me.” And he said, “Yeah, sure. It's okay, Walter! ”” “I was in denial,” explains Alan. We had known each other for so long that I thought he was joking.
