Dear Colleagues,

There is a disturbing video of a man committing suicide currently being circulated on TikTok and Instagram.
The video can reportedly be hidden in other content (posing as “Cute cats” etc) so our current advice is to warn parents not to allow use of these apps until the harmful content has been removed. TikTok are actively working to resolve this.
For more information, please see https://www.news.com.au/technology/online/social/parents-warned-about-shocking-suicide-video-on-tiktok-that-may-be-hidden-in-other-content/news-story/c135157c5a009fdcaaa7f9d54b146f7a
