TIKTOK YA DON'T STOP - SLICK RICK
TikTok is extremely controversial and is possibly being banned in the U.S. Biden's administration has repeatedly warned the tech giant that it is facing a ban in the United States if Chinese owners do not sell their stakes in the social media platforms. TikTok confirmed receiving the request but has not taken action. Spokesperson Maureen Shanahan said in a statement. “A change in ownership would not impose any new restrictions on data flows or access. The best way to address concerns about national security is with the transparent, US-based protection of US user data and systems, with robust third-party monitoring, vetting, and verification, which we are already implementing.” “If protecting national security is the objective, divestment doesn’t solve the problem.” The app has 100 million followers here in the United States.
TIK TOK CONTROVERSY CONTINUES...
So while kids are imitating two dogs dancing to Ice Spice, China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Wang Wenbin stated America has “failed to produce evidence that TikTok threatens US national security.” The European Union and Canada followed. TikTok declined to discuss specifics of the US government’s request, including details around its timing. China said the United States was “unreasonably suppressing” TikTok and spreading “false information” about data security. “The US side has so far failed to produce evidence that Tik Tok threatens US national security” said by Chinese Officials at a regular press briefing.
TikTok has been negotiating with CFIUS for more than two years on a deal that might allow the app to continue operating in the US market. The talks with TikTok and it's owners have been going on for a while now, prompting criticism of the Biden administration by some US lawmakers who have pushed to ban the app through legislation. Some US lawmakers have moved to expand Biden’s authority to impose a nationwide TikTok ban on top of the restrictions targeting US government devices.
