tik tok is legally banned from ww3 (i blame the hype house)


What’s in the stars for 2020? The horoscope for the new decade has a rare
cosmic lineup. let me guess. Mercury’s going into retrograde, Jupiter
switched to Capricorn, and the Earth is going to crash directly into the sun. That’s the vibe I’ve been picking up ever
since the new decade started. But I think I know how to fix it. TikTok, WWIII and the Hype House is already
ruining my 2020 and here’s why. Barely a week into the new year, and WWIII
TikTok compilations are now a thing. If that’s not enough to prove that this
decade is going to be awful, I really don’t know what is. I feel like the world is a sitcom, and we’re
on season 12. Like the first few seasons were cute at the
time, even though looking back, they’re a little problematic. But at this point, the show’s just been
on for too long. It’s not making as much money, none of the
actors want to be here anymore, and we’re headed to an inevitable and abrupt cancellation. But not because of WWIII. There’s a political subtext behind the WWIII
meme which I will not be getting into in this video, because scientifically speaking, “Ew,
politics, no thank you”. But as an objective fact, nobody is going
to be drafted into WWIII. And as for the war itself? World War III is not gonna happen. But of course that wasn’t enough to stop
Twitter. Tweets started popping up left and right,
and before we knew it, WWIII was trending on Twitter with over 1 million tweets. But then one of those tweets turned out to
be a meme. And another. And another. Within less than 24 hours, World War had become
a meme. Some of them were even funny. Even I posted World War 3 tweets, like this
one. Wait, that’s just my username. I guess you should follow me on Twitter if
you want to see them. And like all good Twitter discourse, it eventually
trickled up to TikTok. Everyone joined in, and the WWIII hashtag
on TikTok quickly racked up over 400 million views. So basically that’s the story of how for
a brief second, everyone thought we were going to be drafted into the third world war, and
then once we realized that wasn’t the case, we just memed it into oblivion on TikTok. This all happened within the first week of
the year by the way. That’s how we set the stage for the new
decade. But like I said, I know exactly how to fix
this situation. But first there’s an even deeper level of
irony to all of this that nobody has talked about so far. Legally speaking, TikTok wouldn’t even be
allowed in WWIII. It’s been banned by the United States military
as a security risk. See the real cringe on Tik Tok isn’t the
people on the app. Then again, I may be biased because I’m
on the app, but we don’t talk about that. No, the real cringe is Tik Tok itself. Because TikTok is owned by a Chinese compnay
called ByteDance. And ByteDance is bad at everything. For example: security. Last year, the United States conducted a security
review, and their conclusion was that government personnel should remove the app from their
phones because it was a “cyber-security threat”. They didn’t go into detail about what exactly
was wrong with the app, but this year we got the information. Check Point Research conducted their own,
independent review of the app in December, and they published the whole thing this January,
including screenshots. Apparently, anybody who knew how could mess
around with some of the code on TikTok’s website, and get access to any user’s real
name and date of birth. In addition to that, hackers could send a
text message directly from Tik Tok’s verification number, leading to fake links which would
then give the hackers control over people’s accounts, whether that’s viewing and deleting
videos, making accounts accept unwanted followers, or worst of all: making private videos public. Now generally I would say if you click on
a shady link and wind up getting your account hacked, that’s pretty much natural selection. Like come on. You know that email was worded a little to
strangely to be official. But the thing is, these aren’t email links,
these are text messages coming directly from the same number you used to set up your Tik
Tok account. You can’t blame anybody for not realizing
it’s unofficial. When you take that into consideration along
with the fact that the majority of Tik Tok’s users are kids, suddenly things are starting
to seem a bit more sinister. You think you’re just lip-syncing to Ariana
Grande, but some guy in a basement somewhere has your real name, date of birth, and private
videos. It’s trash. Now to their credit, ByteDance allegedly fixed
all of these Tik Tok security issues in December. But that was literally last month and Tik
Tok has been around for a couple of years. If the security bugs weren’t scary enough,
ByteDance is also extremely unethical, as they were actively hiding videos from disabled
creators. According to the German tech blog Netzpolitik.org,
they got their hands on leaked documents where ByteDance instructed their moderators to look
at TikToks to see if the users had disabilities such as autism or Down’s Syndrome, and to
flag those viewer’s accounts and hide them from view. This was apparently done to “limit cyberbullying”. But for some reason, the moderators were also
instructed to hide accounts from users that were overweight or LQBGT. Where do I start. You know what, I’m not going to start. I’m just going to say there’s a word for
this, and it rhymes with discrimination. And is discrimination. How are you going to limit cyberbullying by
bullying people before the cyberbullies can get to them? It‘s almost like it has nothing to do with
preventing bullying, and you’re just bullying. Also, in what world is it okay to look at
someone and just guess whether or not they’re LGTQB, autistic or overweight so you can figure
out if you should treat them differently? TikTok is lierally trash. But once again, ByteDance has apparently stopped
doing this, and said that they realized it was “not the right approach”. I’m so glad they came to the conclusion
that discrimination is wrong. Can we get a round of applause for their bravery? The last thing that’s creepy is that ByteDance
was developing a feature that lets users ceate their own deepfakes, scanning your face and
digitally placing it on someone else’s body. Now, this is the same type of feature that’s
found in any app that allows you to do a faceswap, but my question is, do I really want a Chinese
company notorious for security issues scanning my face and storing that information in their
data. What makes it creepier is that this feature
isn’t even in the app. It’s just in the app’s code. The only reason we knew TikTok could scan
your face at all was because this code was found by an Israeli research company called
Watchful.ai. And do you know what ByteDance said once they
got called out for having deepfake code built-in? They had no intention of using it, and that
they would be removing the code to “avoid confusion”. I’m becoming increasingly convinced that
we live in a dystopian society. The app has over 1.5 billion downloads worldwide,
making it one of the most widely used social platforms, and yet it’s a hotbed for privacy
breaches and unethical behavior. This is literally the plot of any sci-fi movie
where the computers turn on us. We’re not on Season 12 of a sitcom. We’re on movie 6 of the Terminator. Technology is scary but also we’re tired
of this and nobody wanted it. So what’s up on our new decade checklist? Rumors of war? Check. Scary companies watching us? Ccheck. You know, is it just me or it this beginning
to look a lot like . . . the previous decade? All we need now is a group of problematic
influencers to make some giant mistake and- oh look, there they are. The hype house. Now, the hype house is the final thing I want
to talk about in this video, and it’s just a little footnote, because if you want to
watch a deep dive of their content, you should just check out Casey Aonso’s video on them
after this, but there’s still one little point I want to make about them. Basically, the Hype House is a group of “TikTok
influencers”. Okay the term “TikTok influencers” physically
hurt me to say. It physically hurt me to edit. It physically hurt me to write. Anyway these TikTok influencers, there’s
about 20 of them, they all moved into a mansion together called the Hype House, where apparently
all they do is make TikToks all day which in turn makes them enough money to keep living
in a mansion. Now that’s not the issue. Well let’s be honest, that’s definitely
the issue. But that’s not why I’m bringing them up. My real issue is with the members. Daisy Keech, 20 years old. Tony Lopez, 20 years old. Addison Rae, 19 years old. Ondreas Lopez, 22 years old. Charli D’Amelio. 15 years —oh no, she’s literally a child,
why . . . would you do– why would you ever do this. Please stop. New wave, new freaking wave. Either this girl’s parents let her move
into a house with a bunch of adults so she could make more TikTok money, or her parents
moved into the house with her, meaning they’re paying to live there . . . using their 15-year-old
daughter’s TikTok money. I derive no enjoyment from my continued existence
on this planet. In conclusion. There’s something disturbing about seeing
a bunch of teenagers celebrate themselves on an app designed to silence them. There’s something weird about making United
States military jokes on an app banned by the United States military. And it’s not even slightly weird that we
have adults moving in with teenagers into mansions that they afforded from making 15-second
videos on a Chinese video app. But you know what? I think it’s time for us to finally admit
that it’s not the kids that are weird. It’s TikTok. So now at this point you may be wondering
what my grand solution is. How can I solve WWIII, get rid of the Hype
House, and make TikTok worthless by taking away its most popular users. Simple. I think we should draft the Hype House into
WWIII. See, it’s that easy. Complex problem, simple solution. That’s what I do here on my channel. I fix entire decades. I literally deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. Anyway, all that being said, follow me on
TikTok, my TIkTok username is @Dangelno. There’s a link down below and I too would
love to make TikTok mansion money. TikTok if you’re watching this, please sponsor
me, this video is just a light-hearted joke haha. Except for the articles and objective facts. 我爱中国. Anyway, looks like I’ve gotten ten minutes
of content out of this, so leave a like, tell me what you think, and subscribe if you haven’t
already. Thank you for watching and a big thank you
to my 276,000 subscribers. Okay bye. *desperately tries to pronounce Chinese* Maybe? I tried.

TBF her big sister is living in the hype house too, so it's probably why the parents were OK to let her live there because her sister could watch over her, and she should be relatively safe if the sister is not too dumb.
