The pandemic has put an end to our daily lives. While some people thought it was a well-deserved break, others were tired of sitting at home all the time, not doing much. Social media has proven to be the “savior” in these trying times. Earlier this year, Shaun White opened up about his experience with social media during the pandemic.

Will Smith’s advice to Shaun White

The 21st century has seen the dawn of social networks. The introduction of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Reddit meant that the digital revolution was well underway. However, this comes with setbacks, as online negativity often affects one’s state of mind. And Shaun was no stranger to it.

During an interview, White revealed the advice Will gave her over dinner. The two stars discussed the various pros and cons of spending less time on social media and not paying attention to what online trolls have to say to them. In the end, Smith’s advice worked like a charm for Shaun. White said, “I remember reading the comments when I was younger and then – no name – but I was at dinner with Will Smith and a bunch of people. And we were talking about social media.

Shaun added, “he was just like, ‘Here are the rules: Do what feels right to you. Be real. To be open. And don’t read the comments. Never read comments. After that, I was like, “Okay.” So I just quit.” While Shaun has 2.2 million followers on Instagram, his girlfriend and actress Nina Dobrev has 25.5 million followers. And as Shaun says, “In his world, it’s so wild!” Naturally, not everyone will have nice things to say about the couple.

Smith’s advice came as everyone began to return to their pre-pandemic lives. And Shaun was also part of that crowd, but after talking with Will, Shaun learned the lesson of stillness in life.
