Cultural Appropriation? Woke Black Creators Strike, Demand Credit For Work - www.Socialnetworktrends.com
Another big reason why TikTok is so hugely popular is because of the prevalence of trends, such as dance challenges for popular songs or videos aligned with popular in-app filters. The algorithm prioritizes content that fits certain online trends that are popular at the moment.
Included in the TikTok dance compilation were:
- “Do It Again” (recorded by Pia Mia, choreographed by @noahschnapp)
- “Savage Love” (recorded and choreographed by @jasonderulo)
- “Corvette Corvette” (recorded by Popp Hunna, choreographed by @yvnggprince)
- “Laffy Taffy” (recorded by D4L, choreographed by @flyboyfu)
- “Savage” (recorded by Megan Thee Stallion, choreographed by @keke.janjah)
- “Blinding Lights” (recorded by the Weeknd, choreographed by @macdaddyz)
- “Up” (recorded by Cardi B, choreographed by @theemyanicole)
- “Fergalicious” (recorded by Fergie and will.i.am, choreographed by @thegilberttwins)
(The choreographers’ names have been shared by Twitter users and confirmed by Buzzfeed.)
"I think Black creators should just stop creating content for like a good 6 months and just observe what these people come up with,” wrote another in a tweet that had amassed more than 261,000 likes.
Representatives for “The Tonight Show” and Rae did not immediately respond to The Times’ requests for comment.
Our opinion, Tiktok is built on copying. And unless one catches the first one who copied someone's dance it's unreasonable to expect that people will go search for whoever made the dance first. Don't like Tiktok? Don't put your dance there.
