His friend pointed this out so he removed it and has had many interviews since. He never thought that they would “google” his name on the internet and find it.

11 TEXTING Protect your privacy- Only give your number out to those you know. Never reply to messages from numbers you don’t know. Make sure you know how to block phone numbers. Respect Others- Think about how a text message might sound before you send it. Do not take pictures of people without their permission. Imagine that once this picture is on your phone- it could end up anywhere! Use your common sense: Report to an adult if you are getting inappropriate pictures or harrassing text messages.
