Properly, it seems like TikTok (in all probability) isn’t going to get banned!! Woo! SUCK IT TRUMP!
To rejoice, I needed to highlight the three funniest accounts I got here throughout this week: Adam Waheed, Drew Talbert and Mary-Alice Farina.
Once I acquired the go-ahead to begin penning this sequence, my boss had considerations that we wouldn’t be capable to discover three new TikTok comedy creators to function each week. I wasn’t fearful as a result of – TikTok has over 500 million lively customers!
Even when I wrote about three totally different TikTokers each week for the remainder of my life (which I’m completely right down to do!), I nonetheless wouldn’t have given the highlight to all of the unbelievable and deserving comedy creators on this app. Nonetheless, for so long as I can, I’m going to function the content material creators which can be going viral on TikTok in the present day in order that after they grow to be large names within the mainstream comedy group, you’ll be capable to say, “Hey – I knew about [INSERT PERSON] earlier than they had been large.”
*P.S. the TikTok ban replace has now completely moved to the underside of the article. Scroll down for that!

It’s truthfully refreshing to see white individuals calling out different white individuals on their unhealthy conduct, and Mary-Alice Farina does it hilariously and flawlessly. She both imitates white individuals in positions of energy to show how discriminatory (each subtly and overtly) these individuals might be, or she impersonates iconic characters to brutally roast white individuals’s flawed logic and actions.

TIKTOK BAN UPDATE
So should you didn’t suppose 2020 might get weirder, it simply did:
- Walmart is partnering with Microsoft to probably purchase TikTok. Oracle continues to be pursuing TikTok, and Trump has publicly endorsed the sale – possible as a result of, Larry Ellison, considered one of Trump’s greatest (and richest) supporters owns the corporate. It’s “humorous” how Trump tried to ban TikTok for being a “nationwide safety risk,” however is now fortunately endorsing the app be offered to considered one of his pals. I scent bullshit and greed throughout this.
- TikTok is formally suing the Trump Administration! The corporate is arguing that the ban was unconstitutional, denied them due course of, and the Trump Administration ignored the big quantity of data that TikTok offered demonstrating the safety of consumer knowledge. Oh, and one other enjoyable reality – Trump made this govt order with out proof that TikTok was a nationwide safety risk or giving consumer info to China.
- TikTok CEO Kevin Mayer abruptly left the corporate (he was excluded from deal talks & additionally… TikTok has been via loads since he began three months in the past… so, I get it. I wouldn’t need his job both at this level both).
What all of it means: It looks as if TikTok might be protected from getting banned now that TikTok has a number of consumers… however we additionally nonetheless don’t know what any of those corporations will do with the app as soon as the acquisition occurs. Issues appear extra hopeful than they did a number of weeks in the past.
We’ll replace you extra because the story develops! #lawsuit #executiveorder
