The Chinese Communist Party-affiliated TikTok “permanently banned” Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America after the Supreme Court on Friday overturned 1973’s landmark Roe v. Wade decision. Later, the platform quietly restored your account.
Screenshots that Susan B. Anthony Pro-life America (SBA) sent MRC Free Speech America indicate that TikTok “permanently banned” SBA’s account “due to multiple violations of our Community Guidelines.”
TikTok ignored MRC Free Speech America’s question of which Community Guideline(s) the account violated. Instead, the platform excused the ban, claiming that “the account was restored within a few minutes.”
“It’s a complete lie that our account was only suspended for a few minutes,” SBA Digital and Creative Director Andrew Moore told MRC Free Speech America. He later added that SBA was “unable to post” and that his team “tried to log in multiple times throughout the day Friday and couldn’t get in.”
Moore also called out TikTok’s “lack of transparency about suspensions” and “lack of communication.”
SBA’s screenshots indicate that the platform restored the group’s account sometime Friday, though it’s unclear exactly what time. It’s also unclear why an immediate restoration would continue to prevent SBA from logging intoHis account.
