Now the couple is creating headlines as TikTok has pulled down the video as per its community guidelines.

 

As per a report, the video-sharing site restricts posts by users it identifies as disabled, fat or LGBTQ+.

Chakra posted the same video on micro-blogging site Twitter on December 2 after learning that TikTok had pulled her video down.

She retweeted the video and wrote, “TikTok deleted this for ‘violating community guidelines’ so the rumours about homophobia are true.”

“@tiktok_us you wanna explain why this got taken down,” she added.


In the video, the couple can be seen dancing, first wearing casual outfits and then sporting traditional clothes.
