Livestreaming App Apologizes After State TV Exposé of Teenage Mothers
The head of one of China's most popular video platforms has apologized for allowing mothers allegedly as young as 13 to livestream broadcasts of their babies and daily lives after a state television program accused the company of promoting teenage pregnancy, triggering an outcry on social media.
Su Hua, chief executive of Tencent Holdings-backed Kuaishou, said users posting inappropriate content related to teenage pregnancy will have their accounts shut down. The company has also changed its algorithms so that they only recommend content that is “in keeping with the country’s laws and regulations, and with social norms.”
