Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has issued an emotional message to the world after revealing he had been kicked off TikTok.
The 42-year-old tearfully explained in a video posted to YouTube that he had no clue why he wasn't allowed on the video sharing platform.
"The reason that TikTok gave me for permanently banning my account without any warning is 'multiple community guidelines violations'," he said. "I am feeling numb, and I don't want to seem overly dramatic, but I feel like my world is crumbling. This feels like a death to me.
Hilton said he has reached out to Charli D'Amelio, who has the most amount of followers on TikTok with 100 million, to help him appeal his case.
"Please, Charli D'Amelio, please message me back on Instagram. Please. Please help me. I know you don't owe me that, but I beg of you. I beg of you. I grovel."
His 'Hail Mary pass' at messaging D'Amelio on Instagram is an interesting turn considering he copped severe backlash for slagging off the then 15-year-old after she posted a video of her dancing in a bikini.
A Change.org petition was started after his criticisms went viral and more than 220,000 people signed the online campaign to get him kicked off TikTok.
Hilton referenced that feud in his appeal video, where he said: "Charli is the most-followed person on TikTok, and I think the reason the I have been permanently banned without any warning is because I have been talking about a lot of creators on TikTok because those videos do well.
"But I have not done anything that's harassing or bullying, and TikTok is claiming that I am, just by sharing news and sharing my opinion."
Hilton said his TikTok videos were also flagged for harassment, bullying, nudity.
He tried to pick apart each violation and said he doesn't promote or film anything to do with nudity, but suspects he knows where that claim is coming from.
"I don't post nudity on TikTok!" he said. "The only thing I can think of is, when people make videos about me with my book, holding my book, I've duetted them, and my book cover features a side view of me that shows some glute, but you don't see my whole butt, and it's not nudity.
"I shared on TikTok a video of this man who has lost a lot of weight and posted a shirtless TikTok, and I...made a video featuring that man because I was so inspired by him, and TikTok took the video down for nudity. And I appealed it, and they reviewed it, and they still decided that it was nudity, even though it was a shirtless man."
