TikTok allows users to create and share short videos with special effects and is one of the world’s most popular apps. TikTok has more than 200 million users in India and remains one of the most popular social media apps in the country.
The short-form video app got embroiled in controversy this week when a video from popular TikTok creator Faizal Siddiqui came to light that has been accused of glorifying acid attacks on women. A series of 1-star reviews have been left on the TikTok app listings – bringing the ratings down from 4.5 stars to just 2 stars in a few days on Google Play Store. Furthermore, #BanTikTokIndia is also trending on Twitter wherein people are urging users to quit the Chinese social media platform.
On the other hand, TikTok vs YouTube controversy also took place. It all started when TikTok creator Amir Siddiqui posted a video on Instagram calling out YouTubers. In his video, Siddiqui accused YouTubers of plagiarizing TikTok content and losing out on brand endorsements. Popular roaster Ajey Nagar, known as CarryMinati, lashed out against Siddiqui’s video on YouTube, which was later taken down for violating the platform’s terms of service. The video that registered millions of views was expletive-laden.
Now, TikTok took to Instagram and issued new guidelines while making a video. Here take a look!
