TikTok bans Faizal Siddiqui's account - acid attack

TikTok bans Faizal Siddiqui’s account for posting violent content against women after mass reporting of users

After the war between Tiktok and YouTube users, the recent controversy that broke out on social media earlier this week over the video uploaded a month ago by TikTok influencer Faizal Siddiqui, TikTok banned Siddiqui’s account. 

TikTok app owners were also informed about this situation so that’s why they have taken down this video and banned Faizal Siddiqui’s TikTok account.

Faizal, who had more than 13 million followers in the video-sharing app, had posted a clip that saw him throw a liquid into a girl’s face for cheating on her.

The girl can later be seen in the video clip with grotesque make-up, which indicates a disfigured face.

Before the liquid is poured over the girl’s face, the dialogue says: “Tumhe usne chhorr diya jiske liye tumne mujhe chhorra tha (the guy you left me for has left you)?

The video was widely criticized for glorifying the acid attack on women, and the Tuesday before the acid attack survivor, Laxmi Aggarwal, went to Instagram, where she shared the video and attacked Faizal. She also thanked the National Commission for Women for sharing the video.

“The safety of people in TikTok is a priority. This is clarified in our Terms of Use and Community Guidelines, which clearly describe what is not acceptable on our platform. According to the guidelines, we do not allow content that compromises security it promotes physical harm or glorifies violence against women. The behavior in question violates our policies and we removed the content, blocked the account, and may work with law enforcement agencies,” stated by a TikTok spokesman.

NCW has also taken action against this video and also written a letter to DGP Maharashtra to block this person on TikTok for promoting an acid attack on women. See Ms. Rekha Sharma’s tweet:

On Monday 18th May, the TikToker Faizal Siddiqui defended his actions, saying that his video had been misrepresented and that he was actually drinking the liquid that he practically saw splashing on a girl. “Who drinks acid?” Faizal said on Instagram in his defense.
