Eldorado Posted July 6, 2022 #1 Share Posted July 6, 2022 Parents of two girls who died in a 2021 “blackout challenge” on TikTok, which encouraged users to choke themselves until they passed out, filed a suit on Tuesday in the Los Angeles county superior court. Represented by the Social Media Victims Law Center (SMVLC), a legal resource for parents of children harmed by social media addiction and abuse, they allege the platform’s “dangerous algorithm intentionally and repeatedly” pushed videos of the challenge into the children’s feeds, incentivizing them to participate in the challenge that ultimately took their lives. “TikTok needs to be held accountable for pushing deadly content to these two young girls,” said Matthew P Bergman, founding attorney of SMVLC. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/families-sue-tiktok-after-girls-died-while-trying-blackout-challenge/ar-AAZfj5k? 3 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
