TikTok CEO: Facebook Is Making 'Copycat' Service 'Disguised As Patriotism'

The CEO of TikTok, the popular app for sharing short-form videos, is attacking Facebook for planning the launch of a “copycat” product, accusing the social media giant of trying to smear TikTok and put it out of business in the U.S.

Kevin Mayer, who left Disney in May to oversee TikTok’s U.S. operation, delivered his sharp criticism in a blog post on Wednesday, just hours before Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before Congress about whether the company’s online dominance squashes competition.
