TikTok has lifted a ban on US teen after she posted a video criticizing the treatment of China towards minority Uighur Muslims. The video was seen by millions in the video-sharing platform.
Later, her account was blocked and now TikTok has provided detail about the events that led her account to get blocked. The company has apologized to the US teen named Aziz and now she can access her account on Tiktok. Tik Tok claimed that the account of Aziz was blocked because of the association of her account with another separate profile that posted a video along with the inclusion of the image of Osama Bin Laden.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also shown his concern over Tiktok censoring users posting about pro-democracy protests in Hongkong. TikTok is owned by China’s ByteDance and the US lawmakers are now concerned that the company might be censoring politically sensitive contents related to China.
