Kanye West has shared his intentions to create “a Christian-monitored” version of the social media platform TikTok after having “a vision” of what the future for the platform may be.
West shared the thoughts through his Twitter account after seeing his daughter play with TikTok, the popular video platform which encourages people to create and edit their own small videos.
Cleverly, West, who is never far away from a genius marketing idea, suggested the first name for his conceptual platform would be “Jesus Tok”. This came after he was upset by some of the content the platform allows.
The producer, rapper and clothes designer stated on his account: “I was watching Tik Tok with my daughter and as a Christian father I was disturbed by a lot of the content but I completely loved the technology.
“We pray we can collaborate with TikTok to make a Christian-monitored version that feels safe for young children and the world. In Jesus’ name amen.”
The platform is currently facing a US ban after President Trump was enraged by the platform demanding the Chinese-owned company sell its US operations to an American company by September 15th. As such, Microsoft are currently in the process of trying to buy the platform.
“Microsoft fully appreciates the importance of addressing the President’s concerns,” the Bill Gates-owned company said. “It is committed to acquiring TikTok subject to a complete security review and providing proper economic benefits to the United States, including the United States Treasury.”
