TikTok is TikToxic


Editorial Cartoon by Felicity Bentley

It has come to the attention of many that the widely popular platform ‘TikTok’ is toxic. This app promotes dangerous challenges and unachievable beauty standards. Countless families have lost their children because of this app, and some children have even lost sight of what truly matters. The app is also infamous for being responsible in the ridiculous cancellations of varying media, even claiming that multiple cartoons are offensive rather than acknowledging their own toxicity. I believe that ‘TikTok’ should release its destructive lens rather than promote it.
