A Google spokesperson speaking to BBC stated that "When we learn of incidents of spam abuse, we review and take corrective action to remove inappropriate ratings and comments."

As of today, TikTok on the Google Play Store has a 2.9 star rating with the 1-star reviews outweighing all other categories. Last week the app had over 27 million reviews -- now, it has just 20 million.

The problematic video and copies of it have since been removed from the platform. The creator's account has been suspended.
