image for TikTok blocked creators from using 'Black Lives Matter' in bios

TikTok has reportedly blocked users of its Creator Marketplace from being able to use words and phrases including "Black" and "Black Lives Matter" in their bios, flagging the words as "inappropriate content.".

In the video, Tyler later attempts to add the words “pro-white” and “supporting white supremacy" to his bio.

The TikTok Creator Marketplace feature, which is currently in beta testing, aims to help creators connect with brands to form sponsorship deals.

The social media platform attributed Tyler's experience to a flaw within safeguards designed to filter out hate speech.

“Our TikTok Creator Marketplace protections, which flag phrases typically associated with hate speech, were erroneously set to flag phrases without respect to word order,” a TikTok spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill.

“We recognize and apologize for how frustrating this was to experience, and our team has fixed this significant error.

To be clear, Black Lives Matter does not violate our policies and currently has over 27B views on our platform.". »

Authored by

Tampa Bay, FL – The Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup last night, proving once and for all that, in a salary cap league, a team that blatantly exceeds the salary cap will usually be better than teams that don’t.
