TikTok has millions of users around the world who create and share short videos on any topic, and sometimes without any topic at all. While on one hand this app is making its place in the list of trend apps on the App Store globally, on the other hand the company is ordering its moderators to block users with “abnormally shaped bodies” or “ugly looks”. Is. Not only this, in the guidelines issued by the company, moderators have also been asked to remove videos of “beer belly” i.e. people with fat stomachs from the app. TikTok has previously faced allegations of blocking content, particularly posts by disabled users. ByteDance, the company that owns the TikTok app, runs many popular websites and social apps.

A report from the Intercept Citing an internal source, it has been learned that TikTok has given guidelines to its moderators that videos of ugly looking or belly fat people should not be uploaded to the app. The report even states that the company’s policy also prevents videos of poor people or people living in slums.

The report further states that only a part of this discriminatory TikTok guideline has been leaked. This policy not only contained guidelines to block videos of users who were poor, ugly or with abnormal bodies, but also included guidelines to block posts of people with disabilities and LGBT.

TikTok’s guidelines say that videos of poor looking people should be banned from the platform. In this leaked TikTok guideline, there is talk of removing videos made in broken walls or old looking houses.

Tik Tok has also given a statement on this. A spokesperson for TikTok told The Intercept that the company had created this policy only to protect users from bullying. It also said that such a policy was once in place with the company, but is no longer in use.
