Spanish influencer attacked on social media for being Catholic

Ignacio “Nacho” Gil Conesa, a well-known Spanish "TikToker", has been attacked by other influencers for being Catholic. He goes by the name Nachter, and a few months before May 1st, he devoted his time solely to making humorous videos about typical things that happen in the house.


In an interview with the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, he said “there are other influencers who have attacked me for being catholic,” a situation he described as “ridiculous.”

He continued: “It seems absurd to me because I have never tried to convince anyone on my social networks to believe what I believe … I am moved by a principle that applies to everyone: do not do to others what you would not like them to do to you. Period.”

He also explained how his Catholic values play into the videos he creates. “All the sexualization that I see on social media, for example, I don’t like. I make these videos knowing that my parents, my grandparents, and my boss see them. I worry a lot about who sees me.”

Nachter said, “The biggest change came when we started with the ‘Academy of Mothers’ episodes, a traditional mother explaining to modern mothers how to be like the old ones”.

“I have become very obsessed with finding content that a child, my father or Alejandro Sanz (one of his followers) can really like. I think that white humor is the only one that can achieve that.”
