TikTok’s Global Operations Manager is a former Chinese Communist Party diplomat who served in the regime’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism and embassies. Tamer Tang identifies himself as TikTok’s Global Operations Manager, a position he’s held since August 2018, on LinkedIn. He was previously a direct employee of the Chinese Communist Party, serving as an attaché at China’s Egyptian Embassy from 2015 to 2018 and a secretary at the regime’s Ministry of Tourism and Culture from 2014 to 2015. TikTok hired Tang — who counts no other employers besides the Chinese Communist Party — immediately after he departed the Chinese Embassy in Egypt. This connection, unearthed by The National Pulse, follows reporting on TikTok hiring a Tehran-based Chinese Communist Party diplomat to regulate the app’s content in 2020. These revelations come as no surprise: the app censors content that undermines Chinese Communist Party narratives, and its founder has pledged to use his platform to “promote socialist core values” and devotion to the Chinese government.
