Many of us have had pretty tough years in 2020 for obvious reasons, but please can you all spare a thought for Perez Hilton, who was left in tears today after he was banned from TikTok.

The celebrity blogger recorded a desperate plea to TikTok superstar Charli D’Amelio after he heard that he was permanently banned for multiple community guideline violations – although crucially he’s unaware of just what these community guideline violations are talking about. He thinks they may be related to other videos involving other creators and in particular one where he criticised Charli for wearing a bikini when he was 15, leading to 228,000 people singing a petition to have him removed from the platform.
Do you think that might have something to do with Perez, do you? Anyway, here’s his tearful video:
The reason that TikTok gave me for permanently banning my account without any warning is ‘multiple community guidelines violations’.
I am feeling numb, and I don’t want to seem overly dramatic, but I feel like my world is crumbling. This feels like a death to me.
If anyone could help me right now, it would be Charli D’Amelio’s family. And with all of the humility in the world, I grovel to them and I pray that they could find kindness in their heart to please help me.
But I have not done anything that’s harassing or bullying, and TikTok is claiming that I am, just by sharing news and sharing my opinion.
Please, Charli D’Amelio, please message me back on Instagram. Please. Please help me. I know you don’t owe me that, but I beg of you. I beg of you. I grovel, I beg.”
I feel really empty right now.
Oh awah! I get that cancel culture is on its way out and debatably should never have been a thing, but it’s pretty embarrassing seeing a grown man end up in tears because of being banned from TikTok. Surely he knows a whole bunch of celebrities other than Charli D’Amelio or can contact someone somewhere who can help him with this problem? He must know someone who works at TikTok being a big time influencer you would think? Instead he just makes a video of himself crying. Loser.
