TikTok is ceasing operations in Hong Kong ‘in light of recent events’

Viral video app TikTok says that it is ceasing operations in Hong Kong.

“In light of recent events, we’ve decided to stop operations of the TikTok app in Hong Kong,” a TikTok spokesperson told Business Insider.

China last week unilaterally passed a new national security law for Hong Kong, a move that experts say further erodes the city’s waning freedoms. The new law has already been used to arrest at least ten pro-democracy protesters.

TikTok, one of the most downloaded apps in the world, is owned by Chinese company ByteDance.
