Montana Has Banned TikTok. Will Your State Be Next?
TikTok is striking back against the State of Montana and its new law that bans the app.
The social media giant filed a lawsuit in federal court on Monday alleging the ban “abridges freedom of speech” and is “in violation of the First Amendment,” TikTok’s attorneys said.
The complaint also says the new bill is “for purely punitive reasons, as evidenced by the State’s decision to single out Plaintiff for harsh penalties based on speculative concerns about TikTok’s data security and content moderation practices” rather than social media companies as a whole,” per CNBC.
