Soulja Boy, an American musician, has expressed interest in owning TikTok, a famous social networking app.

He is the first individual to express an interest in acquiring TikTok since US President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package into law that will prohibit the Chinese-owned social media platform from operating in the United States if it is not sold within nine months.

Soulja Boy blasted the new regulation on his X account, claiming that if the US government bans TikTok, they may prohibit any other app or site in the future.

“I can’t believe yall just gon let them ban TikTok like that. And yall think it’s funny. If they do it to this app they can do it to any app or site. Not cool fr yall will see later,” he wrote.

In another post, the rapper jokingly suggested that he will buy TikTok.

Soulja Boy wrote: “How much yall want for TikTok? I’ll buy it. @tiktok_us.”

TikTok has vowed to take legal action against the new law.

The app spokesperson, Alex Haurek called the law “unconstitutional” in a statement and vowed to “challenge it in court.”
