Faizal Siddiqui is in deep trouble. The TikTok sensation has been under fire ever since his video allegedly promoting acid attack set the internet on fire for all the wrong reasons.

Faizal Siddiqui had a whopping 13 million-plus followers on his TikTok account. A couple of days ago, he had posted a video where he is seen throwing liquid onto the face of a girl for betraying him. Later, the girl is seen in the clip with grotesque make-up, suggesting a disfigured face.

Soon after the video went viral, several people slammed Faizal Siddiqui for its wicked content. Well-known actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt also lambasted the influencer and called the video depraved. Questioning TikTok India, she asked how can they allow this kind of content on their platform. She added that the man who made the video needs to be taken to task. For the woman in the video, Pooja Bhatt said that does she even realise what immense harm she is causing by participating in it.

Earlier on Tuesday, acid attack survivor and activist Laxmi Aggarwal took to Instagram and lashed out at Faisal Siddiqui. She thanked the National Commission for Women for taking cognizance of the issue at the earliest.

A spokesperson of TikTok said the video-sharing platform had taken down content, suspended the account, and are working with law enforcement agencies as appropriate. In a statement, the company said that keeping people on TikTok safe is a top priority and they make it clear in our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines that clearly outlines what is not acceptable on their platform. As per the policy, they do not allow content that risks safety of others, promotes physical harm or glorifies violence against women.
