Viral content creating platform TikTok allows netizens to make their own short videos and share it with others on the social space. There are plenty of lip-syncing and dance videos on it that become viral in no time. And now, the latest addition to the list is the #HornChallenge that has caught the attention of users. From the looks of it, the trend is sure to leave you in splits as it is all about the sound of a bus horn, wherein the user has to target one other person and press their face, the same way they do to a horn.
Meanwhile, TikTok has been fighting one crisis after the other in India for quite some time now. Of late, the viral video-making app has caught massive attention for its excessive addiction among the youth, leading to tragic incidents and controversies across the country.
Every now and then, netizens seem to hold TikTok accountable for the kind of videos, especially those violating TikTok's community guidelines, being uploaded by its users on the platform and demand a ban on the app.
Earlier, TikTok was briefly banned by the Madras High Court's Madurai bench over the concerns of "encouraging pornography" through its platform. The ban was later revoked and TikTok promised to improve the overall app experience and environment. TikTok also has community guidelines in place to prevent users from uploading videos that are harmful, shocking, hateful, discriminatory, pornographic, misleading, etc. You can read TikTok's full community guidelines here.
