There is an ongoing battle between TikTok and YouTube video platforms. The Chinese social media is breaking records continuously and this isn’t pleasing YouTube fans. In a new advancement, TikTok & YouTube users are giving 1-star reviews to each other’s app in the Play Store. Everything started with YouTube’s controversial decision of deleting the viral video of Carry Minati’s “YouTube vs TikTok – The end” in which he roasted the Chinese social media.

1-star reviews are really the best weapon in this YouTube vs TikTok war?
If you check recent reviews in TikTok’s PlayStore page you’ll notice that all these 1-star reviews are complaining about YouTube’s decision of taking down Minati’s video. Instead of going against YouTube to complain about the decision, they are putting all the guilty on TikTok’s shoulders. The fans are also blaming YouTube. According to them, the platform didn’t defend Carry Minati since he was defending YouTube during the struggle. The support for Minati is also trending on Twitter and Instagram with #justiceforcarry hashtag. The support is also growing in Facebook & YouTube where posts and videos are recommending users to delete the Chinese social media app or to at least give it a 1-star review.
We are sure that this situation will continue in the coming days, so we’ll stay tuned to see how YouTube, TikTok, and Google Play Store will react to this. In the case of the Play Store, we don’t think that the company should allow these reviews. After all, they’re coming from a silly fight between app supporters and not from actual users of the platform.
