However, this is not the only reason TikTok’s popularity has diminished. Actually, fans of famous YouTuber Cari Minati have also been openly against this app for some time, who are constantly demanding to ban this app through Twitter and other social media platforms. Not only this, in some reviews against the app on Google Play Store, TikTok has been described as a Chinese app and people are also being urged not to use it.
In this way, public outrage is being seen directly on the Google Play store, where within 1 week TikTock’s rating has come down from 4.5 rating to 1.2. On the other hand, Apple App Store also has an average rating, which has fallen from 4.5 to 3.5. However, TikTalk’s ratings on the Google Play store have seen improvement. Actually, Google has erased some negative reviews found against the app, which were against the policy of Google Play Store.
At the time of writing the news, TikTok’s rating on the Google Play store was increased from 1.2 to 1.4.
Did Google Play remove TikTok’s 1 star rating?
Google is removing the negative reviews and ratings that people have been offering to the TickTalk app for quite some time. However, this does not mean that Google is supporting TickTalk or trying to protect it in this dispute. Actually, these reviews are against the policy of the App Store. It is against Google’s rule to post the same review multiple times or post from different account. This is apparently intended to damage the app’s rating. Apart from this, Google has also said that people should not make political or social comments in the review. However, this is what people are doing in Tittock’s case. So because of this the Google Play Store has decided to remove the negative review, which is not surprising.
Why are users rating the TikTok app bad?
There are a few reasons behind why people are dropping the ratings of the TickTalk app on Google Play and the Apple App Store. The first is the anti-China sentiment, which has increased since the Kovid-19 epidemic. At the same time, after the video of Faizal Siddiqui, a spark against Ticktock took the form of fire. Faizal Siddiqui made a TikTok video in which he was seen throwing water at a girl, the girl is seen in different make-up as soon as the video is thrown, which has been pointing to the marks since the acid attack. After this, people made it viral on social media and started demanding the ban of TickTock app on the charge of promoting a serious crime like acid attack. The third reason was Carrie Minati’s video “YouTube vs TikTok – The End”, in which she especially roasted Aamir Siddiqui and other Tikatokars. Followers of Carrie Minati had since started giving the 1-star rating to the TickTalk app.
Banning of Aamir Saddiqui’s TickTock account linked to the current controversy?
The latest update in this case is that Aamir Siddiqui’s Tiktok account has been suspended. Fans of Carrie Minati are calling it a victory for Carrie, they feel that Aamir has been suspended from Ticktock after Carrie’s video. But actually the reason for suspension of Aamir Siddiqui is not related to this controversy. In fact, Aamir Siddiqui’s account has been suspended due to violation of TikTalk guidelines.
YouTube vs TikTok Battle
However, another reason other than this, the reason why tick-talk has been under criticism for some time, is the YouTube vs TikTok issue. Actually, Aamir Siddiqui had said in the TikTok video that TikTok’s content is better and entertaining than the YouTube video. Since then, he was criticized by YouTubers from all sides. But the issue caught on when famous YouTuber Carrie Minati, in her roast video with Aamir Siddiqui, slammed all the Ticketlockers and roasted them fiercely. Ticketlockers have been trolling by YouTubers since then.
Why are people telling TikTok a Chinese app?
Some people who give 1 star rating to TicTock in large numbers are against this app because they are looking to connect it with China. Actually, Tiktok owns the company ByteDance, headquartered in Beijing. But outside Beijing, the company has offices in many countries. Tittock is the company’s global product. The About page of the TikTok site states that TikTok has several global offices, including Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore, Jakarta, Seoul and Tokyo, etc. But in view of the current environment, everyone is holding China responsible for the Kovid-19 virus, due to which people are opposing China in their own way. Some Indian users are strongly opposing Tittock for this reason.
