White house Commerce advisor Peter Navaro designates Kevin Mayor as “American Puppet” for being working as a new CEO at Chinese owned social media app, TikTok, in a recent interview with Fox Business on Sunday.

Kevin Mayor, who previously serves as Disney Executive, was hired by ByteDance to work as TikTok’s CEO earlier this year.

NAVARRO’S STATEMENT

TRUMP ADVISOR NAVARRO

Now what else Navarro has to say in his Recent Interview?

Navarro also used the interview to put an emphasis on his accusations that Chinese Apps are gathering data from Americans and sending them back to Beijing.

He also mentions expecting swift action by Donald Trump against TikTok and other Chinese Apps.

“What the American people have to understand is all the data that goes into those mobile apps that kids have so much fun with and seem so convenient, it goes right to servers in China, right to the Chinese military, the Chinese Communist Party, and the agencies that want to steal our intellectual property,”

AMERICA IS GOING TO BAN TIKTOK?

TikTok has been on Washington’s Radar for some months.

But it rose high after the statement by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the Government is thinking of banning the viral app, increasing the pressure on TikTok.

TRUMP AND HIS ADVISOR NAVARRO

Navarro is determined that the Trump administration maintains that Chinese Apps are spying on US individuals and sending information back to Beijing. He further added that those apps can be used for stealing personal, financial, and confidential information, by blackmailing. They can also be used to steal property and assets of secret data.

The Ministry for Information and Technology was not available to comment when contacted. Navarro also mentions WE CHAT, China’s largest messaging app owned by Tech giant Tencent.

In the light of India’s ban on TikTok, he accuses;

“We Chat and TikTok are the biggest forms of Chinese Mainland, so I expect to take action on these apps, I suspect that president trump is going to start from these two apps”

Navarro’s allegations and recent claims are striking a hint that America will also proceed in banning the Chinese Apps.

TIK TOK RESPONDS

TIK TOK RESPONDS

In response to the accusations, TikTok’s spokesperson said they always protect user’s data as Priority.

“We have never shared TikTok user data with the Chinese government, and would not do so if asked. Period”

He further added that our Chief information security officer has decades of US Law enforcement experience, Tiktok is a private company, backed up by some of the best US investors who have four out of five board seats.

TikTok is available all over the world, but not In China. Tencent, who owned WE CHAT, declined to comment on this matter. TikTok has always faced allegations regarding privacy. Tik Tok previously said All of the U.S user databases are stored in the United States, with a backup in Singapore.

On the other hand, WE CHAT, Operating at Chinese land, censors the data which might be found sensitive by the Chinese Government.

Why is Kevin Mayor, who was recently appointed as Tik Tok’s CEO, regarded as an American puppet?

Kevin Mayor

Navarro criticized him by saying that even if they put a US citizen in charge, this is not going to work. Any plans to spin off TikTok into an American company will also not help us. Because then we have to pay billions of dollars to China just because it’s App operates on U.S Soil.

The Most Viewed YouTube Videos of all time

From music videos to hilarious viral videos, the social media platform YouTube has one of the most -viewed videos of all time. Music videos in fact have enjoyed much popularity and attention from the users by being successfully streamed on the YouTube site. A diversity of topics are uploaded on YouTube every day and people post more than 300 hours of video on average every minute on the site.

YouTube is an American online video-streaming platform which is headquartered in San Bruno, California. It was created back in 2005, with its first video being ‘Me at the Zoo’, and ever since then, YouTube has set up more than 1.3 Billion accounts. It is a video sharing site that provides millions of users the opportunity to make content and share it with their fans and friends. 

It gives you a chance to subscribe to a channel if you enjoy its videos, or like and dislike it. The available content on YouTube includes TV Show clips, Music videos, documentary films, video vlogging, original videos, and many more. The video-sharing platform is estimated to have a $15 Billion USD in annual revenues. The website is also ranked as the second-most-popular site in the world. 

If we look at the most- viewed YouTube videos of all time then almost 90% would be music videos and the other 10% would be from famous YouTubers and children’s programming. If you are looking for the Top Most- Viewed YouTube videos of all time then you’re in luck because we have rounded up the list for you! Take a look:

1. Despacito- Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee (6.9 billion) 

It’s a surprise to see that for a website that is run by an American company and is dominated by English speaking content, the most popular YouTube video of all time is sung almost completely in Spanish. The song Despancito hit YouTube back in 2017 and if you look at the Billboard top 100 of 2017, you will find it there. The song is sung by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and it also features Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee.

The Spanish song which means ‘Slowly’ has topped the charts of over 47 countries and had broken several records. Despicato has the trademarks of popular music videos including dance sequences, club scenes, and good-looking people and no doubt are one of the catchiest songs to sing to. Interestingly, the famous pop- artist Justin Bieber released a remix version of Despacito after a few months which clearly helped the original version. 

2. Baby Shark Dance- Pinkfong (6.4 billion)

Baby Shark do do do do! Let’s be honest, if you haven’t been living on Mars then you have definitely heard this too. Sometimes a song becomes so popular solely because of the reason that it is super catchy and is an earworm. It once happened with Barney back in the early days and now it has happened with the shark family.

Baby Shark Dance is produced by a Korean pop manufacturer named, Pinkfong and you’d be surprised to know that the song isn’t even that complicated, just repetition of lyrics and a whole family of sharks including mommy, daddy, grandpa, grandma, and of course, the BABY SHARK.  The song has the power to calm a toddler down if played 12 times in a row and every mother who uses YouTube is doing the exact same. 

3. Shape of You- Ed Sheeran (4.9 billion)

There is no doubt that Ed Sheeran had a very successful 2017 and where ever you go, you will hear an Ed Sheeran’s song on the radio. The song Shape of You was released digitally in early 2017 and was also a part of the singer’s third studio album. 

Ed Sheeran also released a lyric video of the song and people have viewed it more than 750 times on his YouTube channel. The shape of You was nominated for many awards including a Grammy Award for the Best Solo Performance and has topped to Number 1 on the singles charts in almost 44 countries.

4. See You Again- Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth (4.7 billion)

The Fast & Furious 7 soundtrack which served as a tribute to the former star of The Fast Saga, Paul Walker who passed away in 2013, has managed to get more than 4 billion views since it was released in April 2015. The song dethroned Gangnam Style by being the most- viewed video on YouTube but was later eclipsed by Despacito.

See You Again has spent 12 weeks at the top of the US Billboard 100 and has broken records in many countries. It was also the Bestselling song in 2015 worldwide. The sad tone and the powerful meaning behind it made it worth watching over and over again. 

5. Masha and the Bear: Recipe for disaster (4.3 billion)

It’s safe to say that this one is the most unusual video on the entire list. Recipe of Disaster is just like the many episodes of this Russian animated television series which is based on oral children’s folktales. The show known as Masha and Bear is widely popular amongst kids all across the globe and its episodes have made huge view counts on the YouTube site.

The show is also broadcasted on Netflix and NBC Universal. All of its episodes are posted on YouTube and almost 3 of them have topped a billion marks. It’s the most popular and viewed non-music video on YouTube of all time. 

6. Uptown Funk- Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Marks (3.9 billion) 

Mark Ronson video made its YouTube debut in November 2014 and ever since then, it has managed to gain new views to remain on the top of the charts. This song swiftly became one of the most- liked and viewed video after it was released. Uptown Funk was recorded by the British Record Producer, Mark Ronson featuring singer& songwriter Bruno Mars.

The song broke the records when it spent more than 14 consecutive weeks on US Billboard 100 as Number 1 song. The ‘funky’ song was also nominated for two Grammy awards, one of which included the Record of the Year award. Other than that, Uptown Funk also became the second best-selling single of the year 2015. The video became so popular that it now has more than 3 billion views just on YouTube.

7. Gangnam Style- PSY (3.7 billion)

Gangnum Style is definitely a true icon in YouTube’s music video history. The song broke the record of being the most viewed video by getting streamed more than a billion times. The video of PSY’s Gangnam Style was released on the YouTube channel back in July 2012 and it would be fair to say that the popularity of the song was quite unexpected. 

The music video shows PSY making fun of Seoul’s Gangnam-gu style and it claimed to be, “a flashy district with high rents, high expectations and a focus on a high-status lifestyle”. The music video holds quite some YouTube records and was also the most -rated song in 2017 and most- liked video in 2016 on YouTube and was a mega-hit.

8. Johny Johny Yes Papa- LooLoo kids (3.7 billion)

It’s clear that the Children’s programming is a hit on YouTube as another video for kids has made it into the top 10 most viewed YouTube videos of all time.  Johny Johny Yes Papa is a nursery rhyme for kids and is a short clip about a mischievous baby and his papa.

The concept of the video is very simple, it’s about a baby trying to eat literal sugar cubes and his papa obviously doesn’t approve of it. It has gained massive popularity amongst the kids, considering it has been viewed more than 3 billion times on YouTube. However, the song is considered to be a bit annoying as well, as it has 40% dislikes. 

9. Learning colors Multi- Colored Eggs on the farm- Miroshka TV (3.6 billion)

The children’s educational entertainment is slowly paving its way over the ranking for the most- viewed videos on YouTube of all time. It makes sense that if you are a parent, who wants their kids to learn while they enjoy their screen time, better yet watch educational videos. The video has gained much popularity as it already has over 3 billion views on YouTube.

It’s a short clip that teaches young kids about different colors via animated kids on a farm. The fun video has a slow pace and has some silly moments that are quite appealing to the young audience. 

10. Sorry- Justin Bieber (3.3 billion) 

It is no surprise the megastar Justin Bieber has a video on YouTube Top 10 videos. The song Sorry made its YouTube debut back in October 2015 and it comes from Justin’s Fourth Studio album called ‘Purpose’. This music video proved to be his most popular one to this date and it became one of the fastest videos to reach the 2 billion mark. Sorry topped the charts of 13 countries worldwide and people bought almost 10 million copies of the song. However, Justin Bieber himself was not in the video as it was shot in New Zealand and featured New Zealand’s dancer, choreographer Paris Goebel, and the ReQuest Dance Crew.
