TikTok Reinstates Live Action Account, Apologizes And Cites ‘Human Error’

TikTok reinstated a pro-life group’s account Friday and cited “human error” after the platform said Live Action was permanently banned from TikTok Thursday.

A TikTok spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation Friday afternoon that the platform determined after a review that Live Action did not violate TikTok’s Community Guidelines, adding that “TikTok is a platform for creative expression that welcomes diversity of users and viewpoints.”

“The issue was the result of a human error by a moderator,” the TikTok spokesman told the DCNF. “We apologize for the mistake and have reactivated the account.”

Live Action founder and president Lila Rose tweeted Friday that “after being banned yesterday for ‘violating multiple community guidelines,’ we reached out & received no response. After publicizing this morning & after media inquiries, TikTok backtracks, claims ‘human error.’ We are back up!”

The news comes after TikTok removed a LiveAction video Thursday and then informed the group that it was permanently banned.

Live Action had published “an educational video to our TikTok highlighting lives saved by our content & raising awareness of the importance of speaking out on abortion,” Director of External Affairs Alison Centofante said in a press statement Friday. The platform reportedly told Live Action around 2:30 p.m. that the video “violated community guidelines.”

Live Action immediately appealed the removal of the video, Centofante said, and around 3 p.m. received an email from TikTok announcing that the Live Action account “was banned due to multiple Community Guidelines violations.”

  1. Today’s general public, as well as the various social media operators are very quick today to demand that people get identified, fired, harassed, and disrespected for this sort of thing. But the report doesn’t say anything about who first instituted the censorship, their home address, that they were fired or any additional derogatory comments you would imaging they would be passing on if this had been an employee of some other outlet. Can it be that TikTok is hypocritical? Or are they granted immunity?
