Perez Hilton has been permanently banned from TikTok – and he’s launched a desperate plea to reverse the ban.
The sassy, Cuban-American celebrity gossip-monger was banned from the short form video sharing app on Saturday for repeated breaches of its community guidelines, including posting videos containing slurs, nudity, and bullying, losing his 1.6 million followers in the process.
He then posted a weeping, teary, particularly cringeworthy (this is a grown ass man) 10-minute video to Twitter, where he tried to claim that he was the victim of targeted attacks “by people who don’t like me” to take down his videos and trigger TikTok’s algorithm.
“I am feeling numb, and I don’t want to seem overly dramatic, but I feel like my world is crumbling,” he said. “This feels like a death to me.”
He then reached out to Charli D’Amelio and her family on Instagram “begging them for help,” he explained, as he began crying. “I grovel to them and pray they find kindness in their heart to please help me.” Yikes…
I Am Banned From TikTok! Dear Charli D’Amelio…
Please watch! Please help! I am devastated. Truly. I am begging! Please! This is not right or warranted. #FreePerez #PerezHilton@CharliDamelio @tiktok_us @TikTokSupport @tiktokcreators @tiktok_comms pic.twitter.com/NtYLqVabqe
