Since the app has been recently found against YouTuber CarryMinati (real named: Ajey Nagar), TikTok is seeing a flood of 1-star ratings on the APPLE App Store and Google Play Store. To worsen the matter, this week a controversy emerged over the short-form video application which was accused of glorifying acid attacks on women by a video by Tik Tok, famous artist, Faizal Siddiqui.
A range of 1-star reviews were left on the TikTok user reviews, which in a few days on the Google Play Store took down scores from 4.5 stars to just 2 stars. In comparison, the trend of #banTikTokIndia on Twitter is that users will be encouraged to leave the Chinese social media site.
With the platform, this is a big loss. The battle will not appear to stop until people help YouTubers more than TikTokers on Twitter and this micro blog is inundated with memorandums about the entire mess.
TikTok Rating is Going Down Every Day
The hectic responses of the fans led to the worldwide decline in the TikTok service. The short video platform, formerly known as the Musical.ly app, was one of the top social media applications in India. Nevertheless, before the new campaign by YouTube toward TikTok started, the Social Media platform kept the ranking by 4.5 stars in the Google Play Store. Surprisingly, today’s TikTok ranking has slipped to 1.2.
What was the Matter?
All of these began when CarryMinati, known as Ajey Nagar of YouTube, posted a video to roast an Amir Siddiqui user of TikTok. This video, planned to roast the user of TikTok, was popular with YouTube and received over 70 million views. This CarryMinati video was being made into the most successful Indian non-musical YouTube song. However, without specifying why, YouTube deleted the video from the platform. Many Ajey Nagar fans thought that because of many reports, the video had been removed.
This lead to the ridiculous reaction of CarryMinati ‘s creators, fans and YouTube followers. In praise of “Carry” and YouTubers, TikTok users are massively un-installing the app while some are using Google Play Store. Many users also encourage friends to offer TikTok low ratings while ordering the Chinese app in the country to be blocked.
Trending: Amir Siddiqui Reply to Carryminati
The stars of YouTube roast TikTok and the other way kick for some time. This fight broke out when YouTuber CarryMinati issued a video called ‘YouTube vs TikTok: The End’ that roasts Amir Siddiqui, star of TikTok. This video received millions of views on charges of “violation of terms of service” before being deleted from YouTube. As for the extreme fan culture, several CarryMinati fans have taken TikTok ‘s App listing to give 1-star reviews to show their dislike for the YouTube platform.
Tiktok was freshly disputed when a video of Faizal Siddiqui, Amir Siddiqui ‘s brother, appeared online, as though fans of CarryMinati were not enough. This video is charged with glorifying women’s acid attacks. Faizal Siddiqui condemns the video and says that it is false. The criticized video has led people to leave TikTok ‘s 1 star reviews on Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
TikTok is owned by Bytedance, which has its headquarters in Beijing but is also connected to China although it is located on Cayman Islands. TikTok has been trying to throw out this image of the Chinese app even for time since many of its users live in the USA. This Chinese connection does not help TikTok among various Indian users, who call for restrictions on Chinese social media products and services.
YouTubers Supports CarryMinati
His fellow Youtuber, Bhuvan Bam, Ashish Chanchlani and several others, such as Himansh Kohli and Guru Randhawa, supported Carry Minati. Now, Ajey Nagar aka Carry Minati, in the war between YouTube and TikTok.
Carry Minati has been backed up by veteran actor Mukesh Khanna too. Mukesh defended Carry Minati by posting a video. But for the young celebrity, he also has advice. He says, “I respect CarryMinati. His video was taken from YouTube, which I don’t think is right. If you have to delete it, you should also rid yourself of many unreasonable YouTube content.
“I, hereby, would also like to advise Carry Minati to choose his words and statements carefully. Avoid using words or sentences that would hurt others sentiments. People love and follow you a lot and hence you should choose your words wisely. Many times a righteous person can also be proved wrong if he doesn’t use his words wisely,” he adds further.
On 14 March, YouTube deleted Carry’s video on the basis of violations of their cyber bullying and harassment policies. Until then, Twitter supporters like #JusticeForCarryMinati have expressed their solidarity.
