Indiana is part of a new multistate investigation of TikTok by a bipartisan coalition of state attorneys general over how the platform may cause harm to children. Attorney General Todd Rokita (R) joins his colleagues, tweeting, “I’m investigating Chinese-owned TikTok over its efforts to reel in children despite known harms to physical and mental health. We are staying tough on China while protecting kids and families!” Over the graphic “TAKING ON THE CCP,” General Rokita appeared Thursday on Fox Business’ Mornings with Maria, telling Maria Bartiromo that Tik Tok is “taking a lot of our data. We don’t know what it’s doing with it. And then to our kids, we’ve opened up an investigation. So have other attorneys general to look into the intent, right? So we all have Deceptive Consumer Sales Practices Acts in our states, and they basically protect consumers – us – from the bait and switch. You’re saying your product does one thing, but it’s really doing another. Well, we’re going to find out whether or not the Chinese, and by definition, if you’re a Chinese company, then the CCP is a part of it, is intentionally grooming our children because one-third of TikTok users, Maria, are between 10 and 19 years old. If they’re grooming our kids to get hooked on porn, drugs, alcohol – because the burner phones that we set up certainly indicate that they’re trying to do that.”
