On Wednesday, Judicial Watch revealed on Instagram that Big Tech again decided to make its displeasure known with the group as video social media app TikTok allegedly permanently banned an account for its president, Tom Fitton.
Focused on exposing corruption in the federal government, Judicial Watch said Fitton account was permanently banned with “no warning.”
“Well, the communists running #TikTok just “permanently banned” my account. No warning,” said Fitton.
Users who follow Judicial Watch on Instagram expressed exasperation over the ban.
“When something is banned it is highly likely the banned item/person is exposing an area the government is breaking the law!” one user commented.
“China [sic] owned TikTok should be banned,” another user said.
TikTok has been criticized for its close ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Concerns are mounting that TikTok obtains the private information of its users in the United States on behalf of the CCP.
Actor Ashton Kutcher has been an outspoken critic of the app. “If I’m China and I want to create a problem in that area of the world, specifically a Naval problem in the South China Sea, I would probably want to utilize TikTok in order to influence the minds of Americans,” he said at the time.
