TikTok Postpones Meeting with U.S. Lawmakers as it is Confronting Criticism Over Ties with China

The TikTok head, which is confronting investigation over ties with China, decided to postpone meeting with U.S. lawmakers that were expecting this week, said by social media site. Besides ensuring Congress Members’ questions are addressed fully and transparently, TikTok has no higher priority. We’re looking forward to holding these meetings after the holidays to ensure that these conversations are as productive as possible, the statement given by a spokesperson late Monday. TikTok had requested a meeting with congressmen who suspect the company censors material in line with the Chinese official’s preference and that user data could be acquired by the government of Chinese. TikTok denied the allegations repeatedly. In the first interview of Alex Zhu as chief of TikTok held last month, he rejected all the allegations of political censorship on the app. To the New York Times, he said that if Chinese President Xi Jinping asked him to remove the video or hand over user data, ‘I would turn him down’.
