Tiktok star Faisu was embroiled in another controversy after a written complaint was submitted alleging that the digital influencer has not been taking 21-day lockdown seriously and his videos are provoking people to step out. A complaint was filed at the Amboli Police Station and the Cyber Crime Cell, against TikTok star on March 30 by advocate Ali Kashif Khan.
Now, social media influencer has released a statement. He says, “As a responsible citizen, I have appealed to my audience on #socialdistancing #stayathome and #lockdown through my videos on Tiktok and Instagram platforms. I continue to support the government’s initiatives to fight this pandemic. At an unprecedented time like this when the world is putting its efforts towards fighting the deadly Coronavirus, it is the need of the hour that we try to be the best version of ourselves, be more empathetic towards others and use our respective mediums to spread awareness, provide support or keep a light atmosphere. In a bid to do the same, I posted a video with the hashtag #socialdistancing which was taken out of context by some people. When it was pointed out to me, I deleted the same immediately. However some people with dubious past and intentions are now spreading false news about me and while I feel it’s best not to engage with them, I need to put the record straight for my fans. I will re-iterate that we should all follow the government’s direction and stay at home and practice social distancing.”
