TikTok promises to challenge the “unconstitutional” US ban.

TikTok claims it will contest in court an “unconstitutional” regulation that might lead to its sale or prohibition in the US.A bill that President Biden signed into law gives Byte Dance, the Chinese company that owns the social networking platform, nine months to remove the app or risk having it blocked in the US.

The rule was passed in response to worries that TikTok—which it has always refuted—might share user data with the Chinese government.

Shou Zi Chew, the CEO of TikTok, stated, “We are confident, and we will keep fighting for your rights in the courts.”

“The facts and the Constitution are on our side; rest assured, we aren’t going anywhere.”

He criticized the measure and urged users to share their tales of how TikTok has enhanced their lives in a video that was uploaded on the app.

“Make no mistake, this is a ban—a ban on TikTok and a ban on you and your voice,” he stated.

TikTok also stated in a different statement that it felt “the facts and the law” were “clearly” in its favor.

“The fact is, we have invested billions of dollars to keep U.S. data safe and our platform free from outside influence and manipulation,” it continued.
