TikTok Cautions Parents Over Suicide Video That Has Been Embedded In A Chip

Tiktok has taken to social media to caution parents over suicide video that has been embedded in a chip.

The video circulating, The video shows an American man taking his own life which came from a Facebook live stream and has been uploaded to various social media platforms, sometimes edited into other, unrelated videos.

On Monday in a tweet, Tiktok said:

“We’re aware that clips of a suicide that was livestreamed on Facebook have recently circulated on other platforms, including TikTok,”

“We’re removing content & banning accounts that repeatedly try to upload clips, and we appreciate our community members who’ve reported content & warned others against watching, engaging, or sharing such videos on any platform out of respect for the individual & their loved ones,”

According to Kirra Pendergast, CEO of Australian cyber safety provider Safe on Social, advised parents to keep young children off the site for the next couple of days until all the clips had been found and removed.

“This content is being quite widely shared so we want to minimise the damage as much as possible,” it said on Facebook.

Pendergast said the clip was being shared on TikTok disguised as a video about kittens.

“It’s woken a lot of parents up to what their kids can be exposed to, when kids as young as eight are using TikTok and could see this while thinking they’re watching a video of a kitten. It’s terrifying for parents,”
