Remember this awesome Dr. Fauci impressionist? He reportedly got penalized by Chinese-owned TikTok for mocking the good doc

May 19th

A few days ago, we shared this A+ impression of Dr. Fauci by comedian Tyler Fischer, who mocked the doctor's incessant devotion to masks. The clip received more than 400,000 views on TikTok alone.

A few days later, Fischer reported that TikTok is censoring his clips:

You've gotta love that a tech company can just say you are "violating community guidelines" as a no-questions-asked excuse for limiting free speech.

Here was Fischer mocking TikTok for the censorship on TikTok while in character.

I watched the two videos on YouTube to see what guidelines he might have violated. The first is the one shared above, which talks jokingly about wearing masks in the shower.

In the second, Fischer jokes in character about making your kids even safer from the 'Rona by duck-taping plastic bags over their heads.

This is a common joke that's been widely used by the best of comedians out there:

It's 100% clear that Fischer is not actually advocating for any such stupidity, but censors gonna censor!

The Federalist tried to reach out to TikTok owner ByteDance, but didn't receive a reply. They must have been too busy pledging their daily devotion to genocidal maniac Mao Zedong and the glorious communist revolution!

What's even more interesting is that the videos in question have been quietly restored, as they are playable once again on Fischer's TikTok account.

What do you think? Was this a tech glitch or just commies doing their thing?
