TikTok’s chief executive has vowed to ‘keep fighting’, after the US House of Representatives passed a bill that could see the app banned in the US.

Shou Zi Chew warned that if the bill becomes law, it will mean the end of the app for its 170 million users in the US.

While the bill passed overwhelmingly in the vote, it still needs to clear the Senate and be signed by the president to become law.
