The Current Tik Tok Rating on the Universal Google Play Store is as low as 2 Stars. The Tik Tok Rating on the Apple App Store has declined from 5 Stars to 4 Stars in only 3 days. Meanwhile, the ratings on Universal Play Store a couple of days ago was 4.8 Stars.

As the trend is gaining momentum each passing day, it is expected that the Tik Tok Rating on Play Store may fall to 1 star at the end of this week. The Tik Tok Rating on Apple App Store might fall to 3 Star by this weekend.

The Tik Tok Ratings will have adverse effect on the revenue of the application. The Chinese application will also lose its global dignity and popularity as the Tik Tok ratings have fallen below the average on Universal Play Store. 

The current incident has shown the unity of Indians and their appreciation for Youtube content. We too condemn the videos by Faizal Siddiqui and stand strong in support of Youtube and against the Tik Tok. #TikTokRatings; #BanTikTok.
