Well-known Content Creator Pluto has delivered some disappointing news to his followers.
The artist, recognized for his entertaining material on different social media platforms, revealed that his TikTok account, which had 977, 000 followers, had been banned.
Thee Pluto voiced his sadness in a YouTube video posted on Wednesday, but assured his viewers that he is handling it in stride.
He stated that while he normally avoids sharing unpleasant news with his supporters, this situation pushed him to do so.
“It’s not likely of me to share sad news with my fans, lakini leo situation inabidi i have to share this with you guys. Nafeel vibaya but siwezi lia. My TikTok account of 977K followers has been banned,” he said.
Thee Pluto shed light on the reason behind the sudden ban. He revealed that the ban stemmed from a seemingly innocent action, which he was unaware was against TikTok’s policies.
He mentioned that in one of his TikTok videos, he had casually shared his phone number in response to requests from a few friends. Unbeknownst to him, this violated TikTok’s guidelines.
He admitted to not being aware that sharing personal contact information directly on the platform was against the rules.
“I never knew until it was banned that makosa ilikuwa yangu. So now there is something i had shared on my TikTok and some o my two three friends walikuwa wameitisha my number. Nikasema WhatsApp me na nikaeka number yangu. Sikujua you are suppossed to do that,” he said.
Thee Pluto expressed his frustration and disappointment, acknowledging the emotional toll that losing an account with such a massive following has taken on him.
He mentioned that he had been nurturing this account since 2018 and was on the verge of reaching a million followers.
Feeling as if he had been suddenly thrust into a realm of intense heat, Thee Pluto urged his followers to be cautious and avoid falling into similar traps.
“It is an account that i opened way back in 2018 na i was almost a million. Ilibidi nitoke kwa ofisi nitoe stress. Nimefeel ni kama nachomeka manze,” he said.
He shared this experience to educate others about the importance of adhering to platform rules, cautioning against blindly sharing personal information, and reminding everyone to remain vigilant against potential scams.
