Since the past few days, TikTok short video app has been trending on Twitter and facing backlash due to the war between Youtube and TikTok. Well, it all started when in the wake of the Youtube versus TikTok battle, Amir Siddiqui posted a video on Instagram calling out YouTubers and accusing them of plagiarizing TikTok content. Post this, popular YouTuber CarryMinati aka Ajey Nagar posted a video on YouTube roasting TikToker Amar Siddiqui. Although Carry’s video was taken down by Youtube for violating the terms of policy, the video, as a matter of fact, had garnered millions of views. Post the video got banned and was taken down by YouTube, fans of Carry Minati came out in support of the YouTuber.

While last year, TikTok was banned in India, this year, again, the short video-sharing app is in the news and well, for not so good reasons. As a matter of fact, due to the Carry Minati and Siddiqui War, TikTok is facing backlash, and due to which, the apps rating on the Google Play Store has come down to 1 star. That’s right! Besides support pouring in for Carry Minati on social media, Carry Minati fans are trending #BanTikTok on Twitter, and another incident that has added to the backlash against TikTok is when another TikToker Faisal Siddiqui posted a TikTok video endorsing acid attacks, leading to more poor ratings on the Google Play Store and demand of ban on the app. Due to the backlash, user in India are giving a 1-star rating to the app on the Google Play Store and due to which, as opposed to 4.5, TikTok’s current rating has come down to 1.3. Besides the low ratings, TikTok is facing backlash and people are demanding a ban on the app in India yet again.

Last year, TikTok was banned in India as it was found promoting derogatory and offensive content. Post the backlash, TikTok had removed around 6 million videos from the platform, and after the temporary ban last year, the Madaras court lifted the Tiktok ban and it eventually returned to both the app stores. Seeing the growing backlash that TikTok is facing in India, let us wait and see whether the app gets banned yet again in India or not.

I hope Tiktok takes biased reviewers to court and get those reviews removed. That is what a local butcher shop did in Europe when radical vegan activists deliberately reviewed his shop negatively due to their cause.

lol I abhor people who review businesses and products online out of vendetta and bias. When people run a business, they put everything they have in it. Indian reviewers have zero credibility and inherent bias. Alt Balaji has its troll army to give its shows 10 stars on IMDB. RSS has trolls to give negative reviews to Chappak. These troll farms need to be dismantled. Hate how they have colonized our online spaces.
