Well that was fast!
After joining Instagram on Tuesday, April 2, looks like Prince Harry is already not a fan of the social media platform at all, as he shared his displeasure with it while making an appearance at YMCA in South Ealing, London. “Social media is more addictive than drugs and alcohol, yet it’s more dangerous because it’s normalized and there are no restrictions to it,” the 34-year-old said, according to The Independent.
The Duke of Sussex continued, “Without that human connection, when you do have a problem you have nowhere to go. The only place you might go is online and you will probably end up getting bullied.” But don’t worry, Instagram and Facebook lovers, because Meghan Markle’s husband also decided to bash video games, specifically Fortnite.
“Where is the benefit in having that game in your household?” Harry asked the crowd in attendance. “It’s created to addict — an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible.” He added, “Parents have got their hands up — they don’t know what to do about it. It’s like waiting for the damage to be done.”
No word yet on how Harry feels about his and the Duchess of Sussex’s personal Instagram, which currently has more than 3 million followers, and broke a record by obtaining a million followers in less than six hours.
Perhaps Prince William’s brother just hasn’t found the right meme page or cute animals Instagram yet — we’re certain that would change his opinion on things. If not, then there is probably a solid chance Harry won’t be sharing any selfies on future Instagram posts.
