In the wake of the ongoing YouTube Vs TikTok controversy, a lot has been going on. And much to many of our surprise, Faizal Siddiqui’s TikTok account seems to have come under the radar, not for the right reasons. The deletion of CarryMinati’s TikTok roast on YouTube seems to have started a raging war online.
Not many are in favour of TikTok and the kind of content it allows people to promote. None the less, while not everyone finds it wrong, certain things seem to be horrible with the app. And so, Faizal Siddiqui’s TikTok account seemed to have come under the attention of many due to a video, promoting acid attack.
In the video, it is seen how he throws a liquid (supposed to represent acid) upon a girl because she left him for someone else. Before throwing the liquid, his dialogue says, “Tumhe usne chhor diya jiske liye tumne mujhe chhora tha?” Post the dialogue and the liquid, we see the girl’s face full of face art, implying a disfigured face due to the acid.
After constant slamming for the video, Faizal Siddiqui’s TikTok account has now been banned. He enjoyed a following of 13 million-plus on the app. TikTok stated the reason for his account being banned as violation of multiple community guidelines.

In fact, Faizal Siddiqui’s account also seemed to receive a lot of slamming from people across the industry. Acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal also took to Twitter to thank NCW for taking cognizance of the said viral video.
Also raising their voices against the video are the likes of Pooja Bhatt, Swara Bhasker, and many others. Swara wrote, “Hey @TikTok_IN why and how are you allowing this kind of content -which is SO obviously celebrating and promoting aggression and violence against women, and perpetrating false misogynistic stereotypes -to be published & viewed freely on your platform??? #Shame”
