The debate of YouTube Vs TikTok has taken over the Internet for the last few days. The influencers of both platforms are on a war to prove that their platform is better. It all started when TikTok influencer called out several YouTubers after he saw a roast video made on Cringy TikTok videos. In return, CarryMinati lashed out at him in his ‘YouTube vs TikTok: The End’ video which went viral overnight. It became the most liked video made by an Indian creator on YouTube and garnered over 70 million views in just a few days. Later, Amir Siddiqui came out and accused CarryMinati of cyberbullying and harassment. As a result, CarryMinati’s video was taken down by YouTube.
Since then, the fans are angered and #BanTikTokInIndia and #TikTokExposed are trending on social media. People are giving low ratings to the Chinese app and it has fallen from 4.6 to 2.0 now. Also, people are also bringing out objectionable videos on TikTok. One of them that went viral was Amir Siddiqui’s brother Faisal Siddiqui’s video that glorified acid attack. As the video did rounds on social media, singer Sona Mohapatra shared the same and dragged Salman Khan’s ugly past in the debate. She wrote on Twitter, “Demeaning women is normalized in our culture. We grew up with stories of SalmanKhan, breaking bottles on his girlfriend’s head in public, yet the country’s biggest star? Needs to stop.”
For the unaware, years ago, Salman Khan apparently smashed a Coca Cola bottle on his then Pakistani girlfriend, Somy Ali’s head. This incident was buried so deep that Somy Ali herself refused to talk about it.
Sona wrote in another tweet, “So relieved I could never be persuaded to get on to this low life platform & even in Covid-19 times where there was a paid branded opportunity, said no. Music labels scout for #TikTok stars to lip-sync our songs to get better ‘reach’”.
