TikTok rejected the EU’s decision Wednesday to include the video sharing platform on a list of “gatekeeper” companies that must comply with tougher curbs on how they do business online.

“We support the DMA’s goal of creating a competitive playing field in Europe but fundamentally disagree with this decision,” a TikTok spokesperson said in a statement.

“We’re extremely disappointed that no market investigation was conducted prior to this decision and are evaluating our next steps.”
