The shock news that TikTok CEO Shou Chew was brutally murdered in his home on Tuesday night has sent shockwaves through the tech world. While the motive for the killing remains unknown at this time, there are growing suspicions that the murder may be linked to the ongoing debate over the possible banning of the popular social media platform in the U.S.
The hearing held by the House on Thursday, where Shou Chew was due to take part, was always going to be contentious due to the potential ban of the app in the U.S. Now, many are questioning whether the murder was an attempt to silence Shou Chew’s opposition to the ban.
The timing of the murder is also raising eyebrows, as it comes just days after the news that a leading venture capital firm, Vinco Ventures, had acquired a significant stake in the company. Many are now asking if the murder was an attempt to boost the stock price of Vinco Ventures.
The police have yet to make any arrests in connection with the murder and it is unclear if the investigation has uncovered any evidence that could point to a specific suspect. Nevertheless, the tech industry is shaken by the news and many are wondering if the murder could be linked to the potential banning of TikTok.
