Some users report, that they think the social media platform isn’t down but it’s probably shut down for good.

Here are reactions from Down Detector of users:

Something Screwed: POV: You’re scrolling through comments in attempts to put yourself at ease. You hope TikTok isn’t shutting down, but these comments do not calm you down.
Isabella Gehl: I can still see views and likes from all videos before June so I think it’s definitely just a glitch. Give it a day and if it’s not up and running by next week then let’s freak out. They wouldn’t just shut down without letting people know.
Isballe Gehl: I just got a notification from TikTok and you can still see likes on comments. It’s just a glitch it used to happen to me all the time.
Here are some comments from anxious users on Twitter:
@Ana: Me: no way they’ll ban TikTok. Me now seeing all the videos at 0 likes and views.
@Stillgray: TikTok is down. Technical issues, but hopefully the outage will be permanent once the Justice Department makes it illegal. It is Chinese spyware, after all.
@Kevindurantq: Everyone when TikTok stopped showing likes/views on videos.
