Tesla CEO Elon Musk is questioning whether the popular video sharing app TikTok is “destroying civilization.”
“Is TikTok destroying civilization? Some people think so,” he tweeted Friday. “Or perhaps social media in general.”
TikTok has faced heavy scrutiny from U.S. politicians for its Chinese roots. Former President Donald Trump signed an executive order in 2020 threatening to ban the app from the U.S., but President Joe Biden prevented the ban from taking effect soon after entering office.
A TikTok spokesperson did not immediately return FOX Business’ request for comment.
Musk, who entered an agreement in April to acquire Twitter for $44 billion, reportedly told the social media giant’s staff at an all-hands meeting on Thursday that while he does find some TikTok videos to be “offensive,” the platform “does a great job of making sure you’re not bored.”
“I mean, it does just feel like ADD,” he said, according to a recording of the meeting heard by Insider. “But like, next level.”
