TikTok bans Tennessee man on McDonald’s weight loss journey
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WSMV) — A Fairview, Tennessee man had his TikTok account banned after documenting his unusual McDonald's diet.
Kevin Maginnis, who made it his mission to lose 50 pounds in 100 days and eat half a McDonald's meal, said he woke up Tuesday to find TikTok banned for “community guidelines violations.”
“It's not ‘Super Size Me;' it's half my size,” says Maginnis.
Maginnis, who became popular for his diet, said TikTok thought he was promoting “dangerous weight loss” and they didn't want his content to be seen as a challenge to social media. He said TikTok believed that dieting could hurt others.
Maginnis claims he wasn't trying to challenge others to start his diet. Maginnis advises those thinking of trying this diet should consult with their doctor first.
Maginnis said he is confident his TikTok account will be restored. He plans to upload videos of his weight loss journey to Instagram and YouTube at the same time.
