TikTok has taken down “ngemis (begging) online” content at the request of the Communications and Information Ministry in Indonesia following criticism of a video of an elderly person bathing in mud and begging went viral.
The content was seen as exploiting the elderly and was removed based on a letter from the Social Affairs Minister. A representative for TikTok confirmed that the company had taken action in response to the request. Sari, an “online beggar,” reportedly made over $600 in a single session by bathing in mud for two hours.
The account owner, Sultan Akhyar, has apologized for his actions and encouraged others to refrain from similar content of elderly begging videos.
