TIKTOK TO BE BANNED IN TAMIL NADU
The Tamil Nadu government announced in an assembly on Tuesday that it will take measures to ban the video-sharing app TikTok as it has led teens and young adults to participate in acts of “cultural degradation” after it was found that sexually explicit content was being shared through the app.
In response to a query from AIADMK MLA Thamimun Ansari in the Tamil Nadu Assembly regarding the app misleading kids with its “vulgar content,” the state IT minister said, “We will take up the matter with Centre to take action, the same way blue whale game was banned.” The app also led to several issues in the past, including the suicide of a man in October last year for being shamed over the attires he had worn in the videos.
The “express yourself” video app that allows its users to share short clips of their talents/performances gained traction in India recently, with at least 20 million people from the country currently using the application.
