TikTok will add PSAs to Holocaust-related content

In order to combat antisemitism, TikTok is adding PSAs and information about the Holocaust. When users search for Holocaust-related content, TikTok will link to aboutholocaust.org. Along with a brief PSA, Holocaust-related hashtags will link to the website.

While browsing this topic, we recommend you verify facts using trusted sources, such as the multilingual website (aboutholocaust.org) for essential information about the history of the Holocaust and the legacy. There will be a permanent banner at the bottom of Holocaust-related videos in the coming months.

TikTok has faced criticism in the past for allowing antisemitic content to spread on its platform, despite the app's rules prohibiting hate speech, Holocaust denialism and other forms of antisemitism. The Anti-Defamation League urged TikTok to address this after they published a number of examples of antisemitic and conspiracy theories in a post.

TikTok is adding educational resources to searches for Holocaust-related content.

In its latest statement, TikTok notes that it blocks search results about the Holocaust that may break its rules, and that it uses a combination of technologies and moderation teams to remove antisemitic content and accounts from its platform.
