Possible TikTok Ban In The United States Sees Social Media Reactions

The U.S. Congress House of Representatives has successfully passed a bill that could lead to the permanent ban of TikTok in the United States. ByteDance, the Chinese-based parent company of the app, has been accused by many U.S. lawmakers of being a national security threat. The bill requires ByteDance to sell its controlling stake in the app or face a potential ban in the American market. ByteDance has denied all allegations of Chinese government influence; however, there are still concerns that they violate privacy and security guidelines by sharing user information with the government.

Despite the indifference of some people towards the possible ban, others are more worried about its potential impact on jobs and the economy. TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew believes that thousands of jobs could be at risk if this bill becomes law. Moreover, other social media companies could become monopolies if TikTok is banned. The Chinese foreign ministry has criticized the U.S. for such “bullying behaviour” that disrupts regular business activity and damages the confidence of international investors in the investment environment. Nevertheless, President Joe Biden has indicated his readiness to sign the bill if it passes the Senate. However, a sale of TikTok is complicated, given that the app is worth hundreds of billions of dollars.

On Wednesday, Coi Leray tweeted that she was pretty unbothered by the wild reactions.

“TikTok is not a streaming platform,” “And I never looked at it as one. I’m not worried. As long as you don’t take away Apple Music, Spotify, Soundcloud, Tidal, [Audiomack] , YouTube Music, Amazon Music, I’m good. Music and the love I have for it, is forever.”

On the same day that Coi Leray, an American rapper, singer, and songwriter, commented on something, Soulja Boy, an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur, made an interesting claim on his Instagram Story. The claim was both strange and comical, and it got people talking. Soulja Boy shared a screenshot of his daily earnings on an app, which showed an impressive amount of money earned in just one day. This is not the first time he has flaunted his earnings on social media, as he often shares his luxurious lifestyle and expensive purchases with his followers.

“I made 32k in one day this why they tryna ban TikTok,”

Despite his relatively indifferent stance on the platform ban, it’s worth noting that others who have a closer connection to the situation are far more invested in it. Whether they are supporters or opponents of the platform, these individuals are deeply concerned about the potential implications of the ban and are closely monitoring the situation.
