NAME: Natasa Nikolaou
PLATFORM & USERNAME: Tik Tok – @niknatt_mua
CENSORSHIP: Shadow & content ban
What reason was given for your ban?
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
It was SFX makeup (without blood) and I think that they believed that was real.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
Yes, but they insisted that was real. Then I posted it again and I had no views at all. I couldn’t even see it from another account.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
In my work for sure. These platforms are my only way to show my work. Now no one on those, knows that I’m into sfx.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
I just want to say that we can’t stay silent, my banned work was just a really bad mask, something natural, not brutal.
