The House of Representatives has finally made the move that America knew needed to come eventually.
The TikTok app has been banned from ALL House of Representatives-controlled devices.
NBC was one of the first to report the story:
"House staff are NOT allowed to download the TikTok app on any House mobile devices. If you have the TikTok app on your House mobile device, you will be contacted to remove it."
The move is huge because of how popular TikTok is becoming not just in America, but around the world.
There's also a problem with the app's popularity, because a record number of downloads are allowing the creators to cause a record number of problems.
First of all, TikTok is owned by a Chinese parent company called ByteDance. ByteDance has already admitted that their employees have been illegally nosing through the data of its users, including two American journalists specifically.
As if that's not a big enough problem, the Chinese company is using the app to attempt to make American citizens dumber.
You see, the creators have two versions of the app. One is meant to encourage things like learning and education, setting the next generation up for a bright future. The other version is meant to degrade young people's minds with violent, pornographic, and mindless entertainment.
They give the first version to their citizens in China, and the latter version to young people in America in an attempt to get them to fall behind even further.
At least in the House of Representatives, that won't be tolerated any longer.
