In a video on her social media account, Kim chided her nine-year-old niece for being too popular with teen viewers, claiming that her younger sister could make Kim’s young daughter North misbehave.

“Your auntie said ‘go TikToking’, and now your niece North is on TikTok … and she’s like 14!” said Kim.

Disick seemed somewhat bemused by the accusation. “Not everybody’s going to like you and I think it’s wrong,” he said to Kourtney. “I think that it should be only for like my friends and if they don’t like it, they can choose not to watch it. Like if I love something, it’s my choice to watch it.”

While it is widely accepted that young people can be moody and anti-social on video-based social media sites like TikTok, many users under the age of 18 are gaining popularity thanks to the service. Although little evidence is publicly available of children actually being harmed by the videos, the fact they remain under the management of small brands means that they could eventually fall prey to bad actors, whether on the site itself or those authorised to manage the app itself.

According to TMZ, a recent case has emerged of a nine-year-old girl being taken under the care of child protective services after she allegedly spoke of being inappropriately touched on the TikTok app.
