TikTok pulls down 380,000 videos in US for hate content

Chinese-owned video app TikTok has pulled down over 380,000 videos in the United States this year in order to “eliminate hate” on the platform.

TikTok, owned by China’s ByteDance, also banned around 1,300 accounts for uploading hateful content and deleted over 60,000 comments on similar grounds.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration also ordered ByteDance last week to divest TikTok’s US operations within 90 days, in an attempt to increase pressure on the Chinese company over data security concerns.

Best known for lip-syncing routines as well as viral challenges, the video-sharing app is hugely popular among teenagers.
