New Jersey teenager and Afghan immigrant Feroza Aziz offers beauty tips online…or does she? In the following clip you can watch a portion of the video that led to her account being suspended by TikTok.
After its initial action censoring Feroza, TikTok backtracked and claimed that her account was suspended for a different video. But few are believing that explanation. TikTok has already drawn scrutiny because of concerns over its political ties to China and this incident is being offered as an example of what happens when free speech and religious freedoms are compromised for political ends.
In this short interview the 17-year-old says that “anyone can do it” (raise awareness) and that she’s not scared of TikTok.
