Soulja Boy Offers To Buy TikTok Following The Possible Ban of The App

President Joe Biden recently signed a bill that would ban TikTok if there’s no change in ownership in nine months.

After President Joe Biden signed a bill that includes banning TikTok if there’s not a change in ownership, Soulja Boy is offering to purchase the popular app.

Taking to X (formerly Twitter), the Atlanta rapper chimed in on the debate about the possibility of TikTok being unavailable.

“I can’t believe yall just gon let them ban TikTok like that. And yall think it’s funny. If they do it to this app they can do it to any app or site. Not cool fr yall will see later,” Soulja Boy’s post read.

“How much yall want for TikTok?,” Soulja Boy added. “I’ll buy it.”

Also taking to X, the policy department from TikTok issued a statement about the signing of the bill and the potential ban of the app.

“This unconstitutional law is a TikTok ban, and we will challenge it in court. We believe the facts and the law are clearly on our side, and we will ultimately prevail. The fact is, we have invested billions of dollars to keep U.S. data safe and our platform free from outside influence and manipulation,” the statement read.

“This ban would devastate seven million businesses and silence 170 million Americans,” the statement continued. “As we continue to challenge this unconstitutional ban, we will continue investing and innovating to ensure TikTok remains a space where Americans of all walks of life can safely come to share their experiences, find joy, and be inspired.”

According to the details of the legislation, ByteDance has 9 months to divest TikTok in order for the app to operate in the United States. Although a stand-alone bill was passed by the House in March, it only gave ByteDance six months to divest. The latest measure combined the banning of the app with foreign aid support to Israel and Ukraine who are U.S. allies.

Following President Biden's signing off on the bill, Shou Zi Chew, TikTok’s CEO, described it as a "disappointing moment" for the company and plans to take legal action against the passage of the measure

“Rest assured, we aren't going anywhere," Chew said. "We are confident and we will keep fighting for your rights in the courts. The facts and the Constitution are on our side, and we expect to prevail again."
