Millions of negative comments were made to the TikTok page in the Play Store due to the campaigns carried out to close TikTok. The bad reviews made TikTok’s Play Store score down to 1.2 stars.
Google intervened after the number of negative comments reached millions. Google explained that the negative comments removed 8 million negative reviews because they are not related to the quality of the application and do not represent the score of the application.
After 8 million negative comments removed by Google, TikTok’s score in the Play Store rose to 4.4 stars, approaching the 4.5 level before the campaigns. After a video of a TikTok phenomenon that promotes acid excretion to women in recent weeks in India, TikTok was the subject of debate again. Although India is one of the countries where TikTok is most popular, there is also a large group in the country that opposes TikTok.
The negative comments made on the social media application were caused by campaigns initiated to close TikTok. Users continue to make negative comments to TikTok even today because of the campaigns that have become an agenda on Twitter.
Commenting to TikTok in the Play Store can actually be considered as the tip of the iceberg in this event. Content that encourages animal abuse, racism, child maltreatment and sexual harassment can be seen at TikTok, which has been brought to the agenda with interesting trends from time to time. This situation causes a significant number of people to react to TikTok against their contents.
