TikTok Suspends HRC 2 Days Over Saying 'Gay'

Recently, a TikTok user posted a video showing a teenager driving past the 'Welcome to Florida' sign and yelling "Gay!" The HRC responded with yellow and blue hearts and the word "Gay!". TikTok suspended the HRC for the comment after it was reported by users. The HRC appealed the decision and their account was restored a couple of days later. A TikTok spokesperson told The Advocate, "We restored the comment as soon as we were made aware of this error and will continue to provide ongoing training to help our moderators make consistent and accurate decisions. We are proud that LGBTQ+ community members choose to create and share on TikTok, and our policies seek to protect and empower these voices on our platform."
