Late Los Angeles rapper’s widow, Lauren London shared a new post on Instagram Stories and reacted to TikTok’s controversial decision following George Floyd’s death.
It was claimed TikTok had blocked the ‘Black Lives Matter’ tag and every single tag related to George Floyd who was killed by a white police officer on May 25 after the officer pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck in public.
Lauren London broke her social media silence and disapproved by leaving ‘an unamused face emoji’ after TikTok’s controversial decision which changed by the authorities of the application.

On the other hand, TikTok Support defended the application and said this glitch affects a range of non-political tags. They also said these tags relate to George Floyd are still all searchable. However, TikTok users don’t load when they in the midst of uploading and tagging content.
Here’s the statement:
“We are aware of an issue that is impacting the view count displayed on hashtags in the upload stage. This bug is affecting view count displays on hashtags at random in the Compose screen only but it is not affecting tags, videos, or discovery of uploaded content. Our team is investigating and working quickly to address the issue. We apologize for the confusion this is causing.”
