American lawmakers have passed a bill which could lead to a ban on TikTok. The bi-partisan legislation forces the popular social media platform to divest itself from its Chinese parent company Bytedance or face a nationwide ban.

Supporters of TikTok question the constitutionality of the bill. The popular video app has an estimated 170 million users in the US.
