TikTok is removing videos promoting Osama bin Laden’s “Letter to America” due to rule violations on supporting terrorism.

The company is actively removing and investigating the content, countering reports of it trending on the platform.

“Content promoting this letter clearly violates our rules on supporting any form of terrorism. We are proactively and aggressively removing this content and investigating how it got onto our platform,” a TikTok spokesperson stated. (Trending: Jury Reaches Verdict In Paul Pelosi Hammer Case)

“The number of videos on TikTok is small and reports of it trending on our platform are inaccurate,” they added.

The letter contains anti-American and antisemitic sentiments, denouncing the creation and support of Israel.

Rep. Mike Gallagher called for a TikTok ban after the letter went viral, expressing disgust at the suggestion that bin Laden was right.

“These people are, of course, massive idiots. I just came from watching the footage that the Israeli Embassy compiled about the Oct. 7 attack, it is horrific,” he stated.

“For someone on TikTok to suggest that this is America’s fault, or that bin Laden, who killed thousands of innocent Americans, was right, is absolutely disgusting and further evidence that we need to ban TikTok.”

TikTok’s actions come after social media users unearthed the letter, prompting concern over its content and the need to ban TikTok.
