A Tik Tok user named Lacey May Jones is under siege after she used the platform to launch a horrific attack on the black community.
There are now calls for the platform, and law enforcement, to step in to combat racism on the platform. Full story below…
In a message directed at a young black girl she was feuding with, Lacey (who is believed to be a student at Oxted School in Surrey, England) made several racist and slavery-based remarks designed to disrespect and enrage the black community.
The video has been streamed over 1 million times worldwide since it was uploaded.
This is Lacey May Jones of the UK.
She thinks black people should get back to the cotton fields and make her another t-shirt
I say we should make her life so she is picking her own cotton and making her own t-shirts.

The horrific visual arrived shortly after another racist teen was expelled from their high school after uploading a video targeting African-Americans.
Oxted is yet to respond to the surfacing of the upsetting video, or condemn its student’s actions.
Unfortunately, the young girl targeted in May’s video is just one of many people of colour who have been subjected to racial abuse on social media platforms.
The clip below was allegedly prised from an account ran by social media user @bellamarwood.
These 2/3 racist girls has been spreading racial slurs towards black people. I’d like yous to share this on around social media to expose these racist English Caucasians and to stop the normalisation or racism. #BlackTwitter #SayNoToRacism #laceymayjones pic.twitter.com/x4DyqZ8bDz
