TikTok vs. YouTube Rating Drop refers to an online attack waged on TikTokers by YouTubers in India. The deletion of a YouTube video by Indian comedian Carry Minati, which primarily roasted popular TikToker Amir Siddiqui, caused many fans of Minati to uninstall TikTok and give the app a poor rating in May 2020. The rating dropped significantly overnight and the hashtag #justiceforcarry to trend on Twitter.


On May 8th, 2020, Carry Minati uploaded a video in which he roasts TikTokers, primarily popular TikToker Amir Siddiqui.[8] According to RepublicWorld,[1] "the video, which was essentially a roast of TikTok stars, had managed to cross over 70 million views on the platform and quickly became the most liked non-musical Indian YouTube video." The video (since deleted) was reuploaded by Dev Kumar Vlogs and gained over 1.4 million views and 153,000 likes in a day (also deleted within a day).


Carry Minati's video was taken down shortly after is was uploaded for "violating YouTube’s terms of service after it was widely reported by the community with a number of users calling out the queerphobic slurs used in the video" according to RepublicWorld.[1] On May 15th, 2020, Twitter users began commenting on the fact that Minati's video was removed. Twitter user @Robinsharma91[4] tweeted a meme captioned, "Carry released video in favor of YouTube and it got deleted. #justiceforcarry #carryminatitiktokroast #carryminati" (shown below, left). The tweet garnered over 650 likes in three days. That same day, Carry Minati posted a statement to Instagram[5] thanking his followers for their support (shown below, right). The post received over 2.7 million likes in three days.

Robin @Robinsharma91 This is like you tu didn't support youtubers. Carry released video in favor of YouTube and it got deleted. #justiceforcarry #carryminatitiktokroast #carryminati *carry minati fights for you tube* You Tube* @sarcastic_shubhi 12:11 AM - May 15, 2020 · Twitter for Android Growing up all T ever wanted to do was make videos and entertain people. I started making videos since I was 10 - and I haven't stopped since. I've given my hopes, dreams, blood, sweat - my whole life to my people on YouTube - A UGC platform where the entire content is built by users and creators like myself who somehow believe they can entertain millions of people irrespective of the access to resources they have. It is hard to accept this - but this video will remain banned and won't be restored. This video had already broken several records and we were just a day away from saying that the most liked and the most popular non music video on YouTube Globally belongs to an Indian Creator. Sometimes the biggest achievements become an easy target to be pulled down. Not getting enough answers can be the most disappointing situation to be in. Well all I can say is it has been a very frustrating day. Thank you for all the love and support you guys have shown me. Life has repeatedly taught me and reminded me today that in the end the only thing that matters to me is your love and my commitment to give that love back by entertaining and staying honest with you forever. Thank you for always being by my side. And I do see you "ALL"

> There is an Indian youtuber I have never, ever heard of with a fanbase in India big enough to singlefandomly lower TikTok's rating beneath that of trash-tier mobile games
> A battle that is apparently taking place wholly over in India managing to have an effect that big
> Yet it still proves the concept of "shut down criticism and mockery, get it back tenfold with genuine anger behind it" is universal

Well, color me both baffled and terribly amused.
