A 17-year-old girl recently had her TikTok account temporarily suspended after she dared to talk about Chinese detention camps in a makeup tutorial video she uploaded to the Chinese-owned social media site.
Feroza Aziz was in the process of showing her followers how to use an eyelash curler when she began to talk about the horrific conditions at the many Muslim internment camps located throughout China, which is the world’s largest communist dictatorship.
As we’ve also reported, Uyghur Muslims who live in China are routinely persecuted for their religious beliefs, which clash with the Chinese government’s atheistic views.
“Hi guys, I made a video about the situation in China with how the government is capturing the Uyghur Muslims and placing them into concentration camps,” Aziz wrote in the caption on her video, as well as two other related videos about the same topic, all of which were posted both to TikTok and to Instagram.
“Once you enter these camps, you’re lucky if you get out,” she added. “Innocent humans are being murdered, tortured, raped, receiving shock therapy, and so much more that I can’t even describe.”
Aziz went on to explain that what’s taking place in China against Uygher Muslims amounts to genocide, and that the communist Chinese government is “getting away with it” because not enough people in the general public are aware of these horrific crimes against humanity.”
“We can’t be another failed generation of ‘what could’ve, should’ve, would’ve,'” Aziz warned her followers. “We are strong people. We can do this. Only if we try.”
It’s the type of youth activism that’s supposedly being encouraged by the establishment, which has been cheering on mainstream youth activists like eco-fascist Greta Thunberg for speaking out and sharing her “voice” with the world. But because Aziz’s voice doesn’t match the deep state narrative that there’s nothing bad going on in China, she was punished by Beijing-based TikTok for committing “wrongspeak.”
According to reports, Aziz discovered that her account had been suspended just hours after she uploaded these “offensive” videos. Aziz told The Washington Post that she found it “very suspicious” that her account was mysteriously deactivated not long after she criticized China for committing human rights abuses.
Aziz admits that she cleverly used these makeup tutorials as a lure to engage the younger generation with important issues like this – issues that they otherwise might never hear about, seeing as how all criticism of China, even here in the United States, is generally seen as off-limits.
When questioned about the suspension, TikTok told the media that it didn’t suspend Aziz’s account because she criticized China, but rather because she had supposedly referenced Osama Bin Laden in an even earlier video, which supposedly violates TikTok’s rules about “promoting terrorist content.”
“TikTok does not moderate content due to political sensitivities and did not do so in this case,” claims Eric Han, head of TikTok’s U.S. trust and safety team.
Han went on to claim in a statement to the Post that Aziz’s current account was suspended because her phone was tied to another TikTok account, and that all she supposedly needs to do is link her current account up to a new device in order to regain access to her content and followers.
In responding to TikTok’s claim that she was “promoting terrorist content” with her references to Bin Laden, Aziz stated that it was merely a “joke” aimed at addressing the racism that she believes Muslims face on a daily basis.
