Petition for TikTok to Ban All Seizure Challenge Related Content

Mon, 04/27/2020 - 06:17
Hi all! I recently became aware of the #SeizureChallenge on TikTok that has gone viral. It is dance videos that end in a fake seizure with water drooling out of the mouth. As an epileptic myself, I found this to be repulsive and insulting. TikTok should have this hashtag and all related content banned from their social media platform. I created a petition with the intent of gaining as many signatures as necessary for TikTok to become aware and to ban this content. Please visit the link below for more information or to sign.
