It was a 10-second clip on the Tiktok video platform that finally put an end to the up-and-coming party app Vybe Together. In the video, which has since gone viral, the startup introduces itself as an “app for secret parties” and uses pictures of alcohol bottles and young people dancing – without a mask – to advertise weekly “get-togethers” that look like illegal corona parties.
After the network reporter for the “New York Times”, Taylor Lorenz, drew attention to the promotional video for Corona parties in a tweet, Tiktok banned the app from its platform on Wednesday. Apparently because it violates community rules. The clip had previously had 11,000 views.
