India vs China

YouTube creators are moving against TikTok creators which also fought back. However, the situation has quickly escalated after the video published by Carry Minati. The video became viral in India breaking several records during its first week. The video got a massive amount of likes and dislikes. After amassing over 74 million views in 7 days, YouTube deleted the video. The streaming platform made its decision after many complaints from TikTok users. According to YouTube, the video went against the privacy policy and was also violating the terms & conditions imposed by the platform. As a result, Carry Minati’s followers are promptly responding with a wave of 1-star reviews on the TikTok App in the Play Store. Yeah, this seems like the most reasonable way to fight against YouTube’s decision, right?

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.
