Why Was Minecraft YouTuber GeorgeNotFound Banned from TikTok?
GeorgeNotFound has been surprisingly banned on TikTok. Is this related to TommyInnit's recent ban?

GeorgeNotFound has been a popular YouTube sensation in the Minecraft scene ever since his channel started back in 2019. His collaborations with other Minecraft YouTubers such as Dream and TommInnit have pushed him to the forefront of the platform and the community.
Why Has GeorgeNotFound Been Banned On TikTok?
At the current time of writing, GeorgeNotFound’s TikTok ban is a little puzzling. He’s not one to be explicit or graphic on his channels, so what did he do to deserve the ban? Right now it’s tough to say as he hasn’t made any public statements regarding the ban other than his initial brief Tweet. When accessing his now removed TikTok account, the app says “This account was banned due to multiple community guidelines violations.” Because the rules for the platform are oftentimes vague, the nature of GeorgeNotFound’s ban is still up in the air. Hopefully, he clears things up soon.
This happens in the wake of TommyInnit’s ban and unban from the same platform. TommyInnit is a frequent collaborator with GeorgeNotFound who, last week, had a similar problem with TikTok. Fortunately for TommyInnit, he got #FreeTommy trending on Twitter and TikTok quickly unbanned him. TommyInnit hasn’t made any official statements regarding the nature of his situation with the app either.
It makes you wonder about what might be going on behind the scenes of both TikTok and the community of popular Minecraft YouTubers. As the story progresses, you find updates right here on DualShockers.
