TikTok, an app for creating short videos, is no longer available on Android's Google Play and iOS' App Store in India.
The development took place after the Madras High Court issued a directive to ban downloads of the app in India.
Several reasons such as quality control, where multiple reports surfaced with questions of how abusive or pornographic a general section of TikTok’s content was and the app's addictiveness and cyber-bullying contributed to its deletion. The app received severe backlash.
But, Twitter tried to help us find the funniest reasons behind the ban.
Responding to the orders, India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) asked Apple and Google to disable the downloads of the TikTok app.
The company employs more than 250 people in India and had plans for more investment as it expands the business.
