TikTok’s Toxic Trade
How TikTok promotes dangerous and potentially illegal steroid-like drugs to teens.
New research shows that TikTok videos glorifying potentially deadly bodybuilding drugs and in some cases directing users to sites selling them have been seen at least 587 million times in the US in three years – including 420 million views from users aged 18-24 years old. TikTok must enforce their own rules and protect vulnerable users from harmful content. And Congress must hold the platform responsible and accountable if failing to do so.
