Shortly after Joe Biden signed the bill, TikTok’s CEO, Shou Chew took to the platform to react to the bill. According to Mr chew, the accusation of Chinese government control in the law will only lead to a ban on TikTok and the freedom of speech of its users.

He said, “Make no mistake, this is a ban. A ban on TikTok and a ban on you and your voice. Politicians may say otherwise, but don’t get confused. Many who sponsored the bill admit a TikTok ban is the ultimate goal.”

Mr Chew also said he will keep fighting for the rights of the citizens of the United States in courts because he knows the constitution stands with them. He said, “Rest assured, we aren’t going anywhere. We will keep fighting for your rights in the courts.”
