On Apr 17, 2019, the popular video sharing app TikTok was taken off Google Play and Apple’s App Store following a court order. The app was popular in India, especially among young internet users whose first language was not English. While some users found the content on the app ‘cringeworthy’, it was nevertheless popular.
Unfortunately, the ban put a premature end to the app’s foray into India’s internet space. The aforementioned users who mocked the cringeworthy content found this to be a reason to celebrate by sharing some of their ‘favorite’ TikTok posts.
Check out some of the popular memes on the topic:
