TikTok under fire for banning 'pro-America' company: 'Blatant move of conservative censorship'
TikTok bans conservative veteran-owned company
Mammoth Nation national spokesperson Drew Berquist joined ‘Fox & Friends First’ to discuss why the platform took action to censor the company and how it is responding to the ban.
Chinese-owned TikTok is under fire for banning and seizing funding from conservative-owned Mammoth Nation over what it dubbed suspicious activity, a move the company's spokesperson is slamming as "conservative censorship."
The social media platform reportedly pre-approved an advertisement from Mammoth Nation but flagged it as suspicious activity shortly thereafter, claiming it was selling ammunition.
National spokesperson for Mammoth Nation Drew Berquist denied those claims on Fox News' "Fox & Friends First" Thursday, saying TikTok then proceeded to press the company for advertising funding to keep it running.

"They paused it, and they said, 'Hey, we're shutting this down. You need to now pre-load your account if you want to do this,' which we did, we complied," Berquist told co-host Todd Piro. "We went along with everything they were asking of us, got things back up and running, and then they just straight up shut the account down in yet another blatant move of conservative censorship."
Berquist explained Mammoth Nation, which connects consumers with pro-America companies, is now battling TikTok to get their money back since the account is now banned from the platform.
