While the influencer on Twitter still reported that he had to take the videos off the net, he explained his motivations in a video message. The videos are only visible to him. He changed the setting from “public” to “private”. “I’m proud to look back on my development,” he says. Slimani has developed qualitatively and humanly. Indirectly he concludes with his old picture. “So people can get to know Sami, who I am today.” His 28-year-old YouTube video was still on the net.
