Tik Tok has taken down Bryson Gray’s latest song “God’s Soldier,” according to the conservative rapper.
“I literally quoted scripture in my song,” Gray said on an Instagram live video with his followers. “It had 43,000 likes on Tik Tok. And they removed my Tik Tok because of ‘hate speech.'”
Gray’s latest release ‘God’s Soldier’ was the song that was taken down on the platform. The rapper accused Tik Tok of a moral double standard.
“So I just wanna let y’all know in 2020 you can’t even quote Bible scriptures. But you surely can talk about WAP. You can talk about your wet A-P. I can’t talk about that scripture though,” Gray said.
Gray’s song, ‘God’s Soldier,’ includes lyrics that illustrate his beliefs are that marriage is between a man and a woman — which is likely why it was removed, as Tik Tok has grown very defensive on videos critical of same-sex marriage.
“Tell the LGBT that they can’t control me. Cuz Somebody gotta tell the world the truth. You know it’s an abomination. And I ain’t the one to say it. Look in Leviticus, you can see the proof,” ‘God’s Soldier’ lyrics read.
Gray included Matthew 10:32 as the quoted scripture in ‘God’s Soldier’ that he referenced in his live video — which reads: “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven,” per the King James Version.
Free speech advocates have been criticizing big tech platforms, such as Tik Tok, for their censorship — claiming that they have now become “publisher networks” instead of “social networks.”
Even in the chaos of being censored on Tik Tok, Gray stated that he will “post it again.”
