Report: TikTok blocks ugly and poor publications

Reports from The Intercept indicate that Short Video Service (TikTok) has asked its directors to prevent the execution of “ugly faces” or people who make videos in “shantytowns” or “home degradation areas” in the section of “I Have Recommended,” which is Common, you see.

A service spokesperson confirmed on the website that the policies did exist, but said the policies were "an early attempt to prevent bullying" and were no longer used.

It should be noted that parts of these discriminatory guidelines have been published in the past, indicating that (Tik Tok) deliberately prohibited homosexual situations and that persons with disabilities were not included in the proposed publications section. However, Intercept received more detailed information from the disclosed documents, in particular: "body shape positions" are prohibited, such as "people with a larger abdomen" or "people with ugly expressions." Like "many folds."

According to the documents, the guide prohibits posts by people who look poor and live on cracked or old walls. Tik Tok claims to prevent bullying, but references to these restrictions indicate that Tik Tok blocks it because it is unlikely to attract new users.

A Tik Tok spokesman told The Verge: The guidance received from The Intercept is regional and not "focused on the US market".

The report said Tik Tok was broadcasting live because it prevented "controversial content" such as references to police protests in Tiananmen Square in Tibet and Taiwan or criticism of "political and religious leaders". ".

It should be noted that (Tik Tok) has undergone more monitoring and review of data collection practices since last year, mainly because the service is owned by a Chinese company (ByteDance). The service was criticized for examining democratic protests in Hong Kong. The United States has clearly expressed concern about applying to national security. This led Bait Dance to consider selling the app.

(Tik Tok) also said today: It intends to stop the Chinese regulation of global content. A  the service in the Wall Street Journal noted that Chinese officials are reviewing specific international content, not US content.
