  • Aziz's eye roll: "Do I believe they took it away because of a unrelated satirical video that was deleted on a previous deleted account of mine?" the Afghan American writes on Twitter. "Right after I finished posting a 3 part video about the Uyghurs? No."
  • 'Marry a terrorist': Aziz says she used the bin Laden image to mock Islamaphobic remarks she's heard in America. "I'm sure that a lot of Muslims have been told that they should go marry a terrorist. ... This happened to me, and I'm sure it's happened to other people," she tells Business Insider, so "I thought, why don't I just make a lighthearted joke out of this?"
  • Unamused: "While we recognize that this video may have been intended as satire, our policies on this front are currently strict," TikTok said, linking to Community Guidelines that say "it's important that users feel safe and comfortable in this community."
  • Aziz's China video: She began it with beauty tips on eyelashes, then: "Use your phone that you're using right now to search up what's happening in China, how they're getting concentration camps, throwing innocent Muslims in there, separating their families from each other, kidnapping them, murdering them, raping them, forcing them to eat pork, forcing them to drink, forcing them to convert to different religions or of course they're going to get murdered," she said in part. "People that go into these concentration camps don't come back alive."
  • Not backing down: "I will continue to talk about it, and I will talk about it on Twitter, on Instagram, on any platform I have, even TikTok," she told the BBC after her video was viewed over nine million times. "I'm not scared of TikTok, even after the suspension. I won't be scared of TikTok."
  • National security: Washington had already opened a national security review of TikTok's owner, ByteDance Technology, which spent $1 billion on acquiring Muical.ly and rebranded it TikTok, Reuters reported earlier this month. Authorities say ByteDance might be removing politically sensitive content.
