Man Training to Become TikTok Moderator Reveals What Platform Does After ‘Removing’ Child Sex Abuse: Report

Uncategorized

TikTok is allegedly saving and sharing uncensored, sexually explicit images and videos of children, according to a report.

A number of sources familiar with the inner workings of the company reported as much, revealing such material is used to train content moderators.

Surely, there’s a way to train moderators without continuing the exploitation and distribution of child pornography. Surely, there’s a way to police child porn without re-victimizing the kids involved. If you were a parent or grandparent of one of the victims, wouldn’t you be asking TikTok those very questions?

A number of former TikTok moderators certainly thought as much.

“I have a daughter, and I don’t think it’s right — just a bunch of strangers watching this,” Nasser, one former TikTok content moderator, told Forbes.

Nasser worked for Teleperformance, a third-party company responsible for moderating TikTok content. He left the company in 2020.

“I don’t think they should use something like that for training,” Nasser said.

Another Teleperformance moderator who left the company in 2021, Whitney Turner, confirmed Nasser’s story. When she saw the material, Turner’s mind went to the same place as Nasser’s: What would the parents think?

“I was moderating and thinking: This is someone’s son. This is someone’s daughter. And these parents don’t know that we have this picture, this video, this trauma, this crime saved,” she said. “If parents knew that, I’m pretty sure they would burn TikTok down.”

She then went on to detail exactly how the material is distributed to employees, Forbes reported.

“Whitney was given access to a shared spreadsheet that she and other former employees told Forbes is filled with material determined to be violative of TikTok’s community guidelines, including hundreds of images of children who were naked or being abused.

“Former moderators said the document, called the ‘DRR,’ short for Daily Required Reading, was widely accessible to employees at Teleperformance and TikTok as recently as this summer,” Forbes reported.
