ACLU Urges Senate to Reject TikTok Ban Bill Following House Passage

WASHINGTON — The U.S. House of Representatives today passed H.R. 7521, a bill that would effectively ban TikTok in the United States. The vote comes just one day after the American Civil Liberties Union and partners expressed serious constitutional concerns with the bill.

Jenna Leventoff, senior policy counsel at ACLU, had the following reaction:

“Make no mistake: the House’s TikTok bill is a ban, and it’s blatant censorship. Today, the House of Representatives voted to violate the First Amendment rights of more than half of the country. The Senate must reject this unconstitutional and reckless bill.”
