Social media platform TikTok has disabled the account belonging to Kyle Rittenhouse, shortly after Rittenhouse made an appearance at Turning Point USA’s Americafest. TikTok also apparently changed the name of the disabled account.
“TikTok has disabled another account of mine, and it looks like they changed my user name to something random and generic- when I type in my old username it won’t work,’ Rittenhouse said on Twitter.
“I wish my own name would stopped getting banned,” Rittenhouse added.

Rittenhouse’s original TikTok account, with the infamous username 4doorsmorewhores, was also banned by the platform in 2020.
Despite being fully acquitted on all charges in the self defense shootings of three BLM rioters in November, Rittenhouse continues to be censored by Big Tech.
In December, video game publisher Ea reportedly began banning people with “Kyle Rittenhouse” usernames:
Video game publisher Electronic Arts is reportedly banning players whose username contains “Kyle Rittenhouse,” citing an “Inappropriate Reference” to “Violence, Terror, and Tragic Events.” Rittenhouse was acquitted in November after shooting three BLM rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 2020.

The message continues, “This name breaks our Positive Play Charter because you may have used words or phrases that harm others or negatively disrupt the game.” The notice does not explain how words or phrases contained in video game username could “harm others.”
