Although Tiktok is currently one of the largest media platforms of all time, downloads in the United States are growing rapidly, especially since most people were trapped inside their homes throughout the day, starting with quarantine last March, This does not mean that the app does not mean the issue or its issues for accusations of being discriminatory. So is the latest news on TikTok problematic for their stars?
It turns out that many trans creators and stars of TickTock have recently called the app to discriminate against them, with many of them deleting their accounts without any reason. Given that black makers and other TickTock stars who are people of color have also been very vocal about the app discriminating against them, this does not surprise many users of the app.
So how are trans creators and Tiktok stars being discriminated against? Let’s take a look at all the terrible allegations made against the app here.
Speaking of Tektok stars.
Adea Danielle is one of the stars of TikTok, who claims that the app deleted her account without any reason. The twenty-year-old content creator spent more than two years building an audience and fanbase on the app that included more than 1.5 million followers. However, he woke up one morning and found that all the hard work he had done in previous years disappeared without trace all night.
Adea Danielle told Buzzfeed News: “I woke up one morning and I went to my teatalk, and I was logged out. And when I went back to log in, it was like creating a new account. So I see my name, and it was gone. I did not receive any warning ”. However, many TicketLock accounts are banned or removed due to banned videos that go against the guidelines, with Daniel saying he did nothing wrong.
“I do comedy videos and bring trance topics to videos to educate people. My main goal on social media is – to educate people about trans issues ”, expressed by Adia Daniels Buzzfeed News. The producer admitted that when he woke up his account was deleted, he had a “breakdown”. He even went on to say that as a trans creator, this was the first time his material has been removed.
In the past, the TikTok star had deleted a lot of his videos, but of course, the final straw was when his entire account was completely down. Buzzfeed News wrote that “she has been told that they allegedly contain material that violates Tiktok’s guidelines, but will be reinstated as soon as she appeals the ban.” She claimed that videos about the trance subject appeared to trigger a ban “.
This is not the first time such a situation has occurred with the stars Ticktock, who are trans, as was the case with Snyder from Florida. The eighteen-year-old said:My videos are actually deleted all the time, even random makeup videos where I’m just smiling. This is really weird because they are always removed for weird reasons like sexual content, nudity, adult language, profanity – but I’m really nothing. “
Then, last summer, someone dunked one of their Tickcock posts, which led to trans-trans harassment and false news on their videos. “It was a really bad time. I could not defend myself, because it seemed to me that a lot of people were coming for me. I said that one day I woke up and saw that my account was banned, and it was really heartbreaking for me.
Both Danielle and Scheider have sent emails to the app in an attempt to get their accounts back. Schieder was ultimately successful, but he said it was banned for just three days before it was rescheduled. “I don’t know how it works, but I know that [TikTok is] Not made for us; It is white, straight, designed to make dances and accessories for CIS people ”, Daniel explained Buzzfeed News.
