In Mid 2020, the Twitter army was on a mission to reveal about the Happiest Person. If you haven’t heard about this person yet, here is all you need to know.
TikTokers and YouTubers have always remained in a cold war as the YouTubers think the Chinese application users lack talent. So, in some recent years we have witnessed hundreds of videos created only to roast TikTok users.
Similar to any other country, the YouTube vs TikTok war also prevails in India. In the first half of 2020, before the Government banned TikTok along with other 59 applications, the YouTuber Carry Minati was on a mission to roast TikTok content creators. As the ban on TikTok was announced, this YouTuber was trending on Twitter as the happiest person of 2020.
Carry Minati aka Ajey Nagar is a YouTube content creator who started a series of ‘YouTube vs TikTok’ videos. In this series of videos, he reacts to TikTok videos and usually roasts them. One of his videos that went viral, featured him roasting a famous TikTok star Amir Siddiqui.
He brutally roasted the viral video of Amir Siddiqui after which this video was taken down by YouTube because it seemed to spread hate speech.
Soon after this incident, the Government issued a notice for banning 59 applications, among which was the most viral Chinese application TikTok.
Other applications that were banned for safety, security, defense, sovereignty, and integrity of the country included, UC Browser, Helo, Likee, CamScanner, Vigo Video, Mi Video Call – Xiaomi, Clash of Kings as well as e-commerce platforms like Club Factory and Shein.
