“TikTok is committed to fostering a positive and inclusive environment where users can express themselves safely,” said John Castro, Community Operations Manager, TikTok Philippines. “While many turn to the platform to laugh, learn, and engage with their community, some users will inevitably post content that promotes harmful behaviour such as amateur stunts or dangerous challenges. As such, we’re encouraging users to take a moment and think about the implications of posting such content, as well as follow our robust policies and tools in place to help stop these issues.”
