Parkland high school shooting survivor David Hogg targeted the popular video-sharing social network TikTok in a thread posted to Twitter on Wednesday.

Hogg, who is now a political activist, suggested that TikTok is a “national security threat” and “spyware from an authoritarian regime” that should only be used to “call out the Chinese government”, or otherwise be cancelled.

Hogg tweeted, “Tik Tok is a national security threat that should only only be used to call out the Chinese government (who controls it) for their atrocities and human rights abuses.”

“Seriously y’all memes and jokes are fun but downloading the spyware of an authoritarian regime is not,” he added. “I’m not kidding we need to #CancelTikTok.”

Hogg continued, “Another reason I will not be going on there is because they censor activists voices in Hong Kong and around the world that call out the CCP for their atrocities. I refuse to be complicit in the death of democracy in Hong Kong by supporting Tik Tok.” See Below
