Black TikTok Creators On Strike To Protest Lack of Credit For Their Work

Black creators on TikTok are hanging up their dancing shoes until further notice.

Tired of not receiving credit for their creativity and original work — all while watching white influencers rewarded with millions of views performing dances they didn’t create — many Black creators on TikTok joined a widespread strike last week, refusing to create any new dances until credit is given where it’s due.

The hashtag “BlackTikTokStrike” has been viewed more than two million times on TikTok, with users sharing videos of less inspired dances that have popped up in the absence of Black creators. The hashtag has taken off on Twitter as well.
