This is a serious blow to Tik Tok. The fight between the fans of the two different video platforms is not going to stop anytime soon. Because people on Twitter are favoring YouTubers more than TikTokers. From the last couple of days, the memes are choking the micro-blogging platform on the entire fiasco.
An interesting fact is that before Carryminati released his video roasting Amir Siddiqui, the tiktoker had released a video claiming that he would be honored if Nagar happens to roast him. The roasting video went viral as soon as it hit the platform. It formed the ground for numerous memers.
However, YouTube took that video down owing to some content violation. Later on, Ajey Nagar came up with another video in which he urged people to stop taking things from his videos like dialogue and use them just for their benefits. He cleared that he had said in a context, but people have misused and misjudged him taken things out of context.
It went on to become the most liked Indian youtube video of all time. Ajey got emotional while recording this video. He was talking about the video and giving a message to people at the same time. As of May 19, it has been viewed a whopping 40 million times and received over 7.2 million likes.

Later on, some controversial videos published on TikTok came under the radar. One of them was the video created by Faizal Siddiqui, the brother of Amir Siddiqui. The Tik Tok influencer was allegedly promoting an acid attack on women who left him for another man. It was a disturbing scene.
After seeing this video, BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga tagged and shared this video with Rekha Sharma, the chairperson of the National Commission of Women (NCW). She confirmed that the matter will be taken to the Government of India and TikTok. She asked the platform to completely ban his account and take strict against him.
As soon as he got to know about this complaint, Faisal himself deleted that video. Later on, he came up with an explanation and posted it on his Instagram account. He is a team member of Team Nawab besides his brother Amir and others. You can check that out below.
In that, he says that who drinks acid. If it was the water in the glass, then what was the point of featuring the girl’s face so brutal after he throws the liquid on her face. Isn’t it concerning?
But, his clarification post couldn’t calm people down. They are continuing to give 1 star to the video platform. While the main TikTok app has now reached 2.0 stars, on the other hand, TikTok Lite has gone down to 1.0 stars.
People are still tweeting others to rate TikTok 1.0 star reviews. Such videos are making people rate the app down to its lowest in its entire history. They are also asking the government to ban it in India by trending #BankTikTokInIndia on Twitter.
