Since the death of his daughter, Russell has advocated for reform of social media platforms and established the Molly Rose Foundation in her memory.
In a Royal College of Psychiatrists report published in January, he said: “Among classmates, pop groups and celebrities followed by 14-year-olds, we found dark and depressing material, graphic content for self-harm, and memes that encourage suicide.
