The TikTok application has been blocked by Google and Apple in India by a petition of the Supreme Court of Madras because they consider it incites pornography.
The Supreme Court requests that it must be withdrawn because minors are exposed.
India has a high number of users who use the application, 40% of the people who registered in 2018 came from that country. Of the 500 million users of the application, 120 million come from India.
ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns the app, has not stood aside and has claimed that this rule is “against the rights of expression. The company argues that this inappropriate content is “miniscule”. The TikTok team claims to have “faith” in the judicial system as it is an application that shows “creativity” and captures important moments in the lives of users.
