China’s TikTok Shows Their True Colors

TikTok’s current guidelines, in place until March 7, don’t mention governments or scientific institutions. However, it does instruct users not to post “Content that misleads community members about elections or other civic processes.” Last year, TikTok also created some controversy when updating its privacy policy. App users were informed that the app may collect new forms of biometric data, but the company was reportedly “unable to explain what types of data these terms referred to, or why the app might need to access this information in the first place.”

If It’s Made in China, Don’t Buy It

One ironic thing is the companies that initiated boycotts on Georgia and forced the move of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game out of Atlanta in 2021 are sponsoring the Olympics in Beirut. These companies are offended by laws to strengthen election security but have no problem with the torturing and killing of Uyghurs. They have no problem with the Chinese government forcing abortions on pregnant women to control the population.
