‘We’re Staying Right Here,’ TikTok CEO Vows Amidst US Ban Threats

Shou Zi Chew, the CEO of TikTok, has responded to the possibility of a ban on the social media app in the United States.

The law suggested that TikTok, owned by a Chinese company, might face a ban if it is not sold within nine months.

Recently, US President Joe Biden signed a law that could lead to TikTok’s ban if it is not sold within the specified time frame.

In a video message posted on TikTok, CEO Chew reassured users that the app is not disappearing, believing the new law is driven by politics.

Chew stated firmly, “Make no mistake, this is a ban, a ban on TikTok and a ban on you and your voice. Politicians may say otherwise. But don’t get confused.”

Chew added, “It’s actually ironic because the freedom of expression on TikTok reflects the same American values that make the United States a beacon of freedom. TikTok gives everyday Americans a powerful way to be seen and heard.”

He promised to fight for users’ rights in court, confident that they have the law and the Constitution on their side.

TikTok has faced legal challenges before, notably against former President Donald Trump’s attempt to force its sale in 2020. Despite the odds, TikTok prevailed in that legal battle.
