In response to the ban, Wakey Wines posted the following statement on his Instagram: I am now banned from TikTok with 500k. I have worked hard for this.
“All my videos are for fun. Like any businessman, I saw a business idea with sweets from WFD and took advantage of the opportunity. Some jealous and horrible people. These Please help me by reporting this post! Thank you to all the fans.”
Following his ban, KSI also reacted angrily to a post on Wakey Wines’ own TikTok page.
“Holy shit! He can’t keep avoiding it. Stop buying at these prices,” he said.
