Tiktok trend where users hide their money from Erdogan investigated
Prosecutors in Istanbul started an investigation against a new Tiktok trend where users post videos of themselves hiding their money after Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s image appears behind them.
The trend that went viral was the latest of a series that protests the government’s economic policy that resulted with a currency crisis and runaway inflation.
In the videos, Erdogan’s recorded voice says "Take out the foreign exchange and gold from under your pillows," when his image appears behind the users as if he was eyeing the banknotes they are counting in their hands.
