The video showing an American dying out is from a Facebook livestream and was uploaded to various internet platforms, sometimes added within videos covering other topics.

"We are aware that clips of a suicide that was broadcast live on Facebook have recently circulated on other platforms, including TikTok," TikTok tweeted Monday.

The short format video platform said its systems automatically detected and flagged affected clips.

"We remove content and exclude accounts that repeatedly attempt to download the clips, and we are grateful to members of our community who have reported this content and have advised others not to view, be interested in or share these videos on any other site. platform whatsoever, out of respect for the individual and their loved ones, ”TikTok said.

TikTok, which is very popular with children and adolescents, notably offers its users videos from sources to which they are not subscribed.

Kirra Pendergast, CEO of cybersecurity consultancy Safe on Social, advises parents to prevent young children from accessing the site in the coming days, until all affected clips have been spotted and removed.

“This content is shared fairly widely, so we want to minimize the damage as much as possible,” she wrote on Facebook.

She said the video was uploaded to TikTok in particular by being presented as images of kittens.

“It made a lot of parents realize what their kids can be exposed to, when kids sometimes as young as eight and using TikTok could see it thinking they were going to see a video of kittens. It's terrifying for parents, ”she told Australian newspaper Sydney Morning Herald.
