Yesterday it was reported on Badr Hari's "Official" Facebook page that Badr would be taking some time off from the world of kickboxing to attend to personal matters for a while. Now Badr Hari has told the Dutch press that he isn't and that the longtime "official" Facebook for Badr Hari is no longer to be considered official. This is another in a long line of mixed messages from Badr Hari in regards to social media presence over the years.
There are currently a few Twitter and Facebook accounts that have at each time been touted as Badr Hari's official account, with the preface that Hari himself wasn't running it, but having someone else do it for him. This account in question has broken reliable Badr Hari news in the past and clearly has a link with Badr Hari, although Hari has now disavowed the account. So take it for what it is when you refer to it. [source]
