Note: This company is likely subject to the influence and control of the Chinese Communist Party, which actively censors speech and denies the freedoms we strive to protect. Therefore, 1792 Exchange urges extra caution when evaluating this vendor for business relationships. ByteDance (and its popular social media platform TikTok) have regularly terminated or censored conservative voices, such as Lila Rose of Live Action and the Babylon Bee, without explanation. TikTok provides a benefits package for employees which covers travel/lodging costs for an abortion. The company is part of the Global Alliance for Responsible Media and does not provide its employees with protections against viewpoint discrimination. The company uses its corporate reputation to support ideological groups such as Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). The company also donates directly to GLAAD. Tiktok is a member of the MCCA, indicating its focus on recruiting, retaining, and promoting employees based on race. For these reasons, ByteDance receives a High Risk rating.
