Anyone know what Nicolas Muller is up to?

Just curious, because he has always been my favourite pro rider.
I know his sponsors dropped him. But does anyone know, if he is making a comeback?

The last thing I know he openly supported Trump and against vaccination on Instagram which is not very welcomed in the progressive snowboarding world.
Guess you get cancelled if you dont follow the herd. That is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. Because, everyone should be able to express they're own opinion.

I kinda disagree on that and I will explain why. Every professional athlete out there is serving a purpose and that is to be a role model for the upcoming generation. Also every pro athlete has to sell his sponsor’s products as well. So he has to be very careful on what he is saying. For example let’s say you are sponsoring an athlete and this athlete starts using the media saying that he hates black and gay people would you like to keep sponsoring him. His ideas affects your brand and your company and even worse, he is a threat to the society. I believe in freedom of speech and every one has his own opinions but when you are popular you better watch out what you are saying. I believe he was saying that the 5G was the reason of the pandemic and the people should not take any precautions, I mean come on … he should have left everything aside politics etc and focus on his job and passion which was snowboarding. End of story. Maybe the snowboard community is better without him after all.

The guy has a weird sense of humor that went off the rails. Mass hysteria and absolutely no compassion lead to this fucked up cancel event, that is a nasty monster for sure. I guess he’s just keeping under the radar. Snowboarding is not better off without his riding, but buisness is buisness. Last photo I saw of him, he was sitting on a shipment of hemp in a loading dock.

He did and his account isn't closed. Now you have to accept consequences as well, that's the game.

My guess is, he is double guessing or troubled/lost on how he got into this shitstorm, for things he didn't even care about... I'm just sad for him, I've seen sensitive and a bit mystic people going absolutely nuts because of stuff they read on the net. It takes years to recover...

Just hope we see him riding again, love every thing he rides. But for now, I havn't seen anything.

If he wants to re-enter the public sphere there’s nothing really stopping him. There’s always someone out there that will pay to associate someone with their brand even if they’re toxic. The questions really comes down to does he want to associate with those third tier companies for way less money and more obligations, and or does he want to put himself and his ideas back out there after that bitch slapping the public gave him
