Top TikTok Accounts Banned For Violating Community Guidelines
Faizal Siddiqui is not the only TikTok user banned for violating community guidelines
TikTok has landed in hot waters due to the nature of its content again. A TikTok creator Faizal Siddiqui was accused of glorifying acid attacks on women through one of his videos. This has led TikTok to ban the account for violating multiple community guidelines. However, the damage may already be done as TikTok has been bombarded with 1-star reviews after the controversy. In fact, the popular video-sharing app’s rating has gone down to 1.2 stars from 4.5 in a matter of days.
Earlier, Faizal’s brother Amir Siddiqui also started a war of words with YouTuber CarryMinati. This led to CarryMinati roasting TikTok and Amir Siddiqui. However, the video was taken down from YouTube on account of cyberbullying. This also prompted angry CarryMinati fans to downvote TikTok.
However, Faizal Siddiqui is not the only TikTok user banned for violating community guidelines. Here are the top TikTok accounts that have been banned for violating community guidelines.

1. Mr. Faisu
Mr. Faisu is a popular TikTok creator who’s real name is Faisal Shaikh. He has over 28 million followers on TikTok. However, TikTok banned the account of Mr. Faisu for violating community guidelines after he posted a video on Tabrez Ansari.
The video about Tabrez Ansari was uploaded on TikTok by Mr Faisu, Hasnain, Faiz, and Sadhan. In the video, team 007 was seen enacting a message that says, “Innocent Tabrez was killed, but if Tabrez’s son grows up and takes revenge then Muslims shouldn’t be branded as terrorists.”
Shiv Sena activist Ramesh Solanki had filed a complaint against Mr Faisu and his five other friends.
