(New York Post) Teenage boys on TikTok are flooded with misogynistic, racist, sexual and violent content — even when they don’t go looking for it, a Post investigation found.
I’m a woman in my early 30s, but I recently created profiles for a fake 14-year-old boy named Jayden on TikTok and YouTube.
My aim wasn’t to use Jayden’s profile to interact with other people online but rather just to see what sort of content the algorithm fed him if he was completely passive.
The Post launched an investigation into how the algorithms of social media sites like TikTok and YouTube curate content for the average 14-year-old boy
Within seconds of opening TikTok and YouTube as him, I was bombarded with a dizzying stream of videos of girls lip-syncing and twerking in mini-shorts.
After about a minute, things took a darker turn.
Mega influencers like stuntman-turned-boxer Logan Paul, 27, started popping up.
