Apple has taken down an app called Vybe Together as it was promoting private parties during the pandemic. There are strict restrictions in many states and counties across the nation. It uploaded a video on the popular short video platform “TikTok” to promote a New Year’s Eve party in New York.
In New York state there are several restrictions to combat the spread of the coronavirus. They include limited outdoor and indoor gatherings with a maximum of 10 people. Bars and restaurants are shut.
Although Vybe Together did not respond to a request for its side of the story a page on its website had said that they were aware that COVID-19 was a major health problem and that large scale parties were dangerous. They also said that Vybe was a compromise “no big parties but small gatherings.”
TikTok had told BBC that the account had been taken down from the platform as it had broken community guidelines. There were 3 videos with 139 followers. Their Instagram accounts says that the App Store removed them, and they would be back and asked its followers to stay updated.
The Verge had reported that app users had to submit a profile, photos showing them partying and an Instagram handle to become active members on Vybe. Members would be chosen and sent an event address a couple of hours before it started.
