Potential Ban On Tiktok In The United States

Potential Ban On Tiktok In The United States
TikTok Ban

Written By : Priscilla Boakye 

There's drama brewing in Washington D.C. that could mean curtains for the popular app TikTok. Lawmakers are throwing some serious shade at TikTok, and it's not because of your uncle's cringeworthy dance moves. The House of Representatives just passed a bill that could force TikTok's Chinese owner, ByteDance, to sell the app to a U.S. company. Some folks in the FBI are worried that TikTok might be sharing user data with the Chinese government. ByteDance says this is a bunch of bananas, but the whole thing has everyone spooked about privacy and national security.

However, TikTok isn't going down without a fight. Their CEO is calling on all their millions of users to basically bombard Congress with messages saying no to the ban. They're promising to fight tooth and nail to keep TikTok in the U.S., so this whole thing could get messy.


For a lot of people, TikTok is way more than just a place to watch silly cat videos (although, let's be honest, those are pretty awesome). It's become a whole community where people can express themselves, find entertainment, and even launch careers. The thought of losing that is a major buzzkill for millions.

So, what happens next? Well, ByteDance has a deadline to find a new U.S. owner for TikTok if they want to avoid getting the boot. Will they find a buyer? Will the ban stick? Only time will tell, but one thing's for sure: the future of TikTok in the U.S. is hanging by a thread.
