She said that she was subjected to included videos of “freakish cannibalism, crushed heads, school shootings, suicides, and even a fatal fall from a building, complete with audio.”
The ex content moderator stated that she couldn’t sleep and “when she does sleep, she has horrific nightmares,”
“Due to the sheer volume of content, content moderators are permitted no more than 25 seconds per video, and simultaneously view three to ten videos at the same time,” the lawsuit reads. Candie had only 15 minutes lunch break to clear her head of the videos.
“Our safety team partners with third-party firms on the critical work of helping to protect the TikTok platform and community, and we continue to expand on a range of wellness services so that moderators feel supported mentally and emotionally,” her statement says.
The RT reported that it wasn’t “not the first time a tech company has been sued for exposing content moderators to graphic content. In September, a former YouTube content moderator sued the Google-owned platform, alleging she had been left with symptoms of depression and PTSD after being made to watch videos of murder, suicide, bestiality, and torture. The moderator said ‘chronic understaffing’ meant she was forced to watch between 100 and 300 videos in just four hours.”
“In May, it was also reported that Facebook would be paying $52 million to moderators who allegedly developed PTSD from their work.” The report added.
