Ying then went on to apologise for the fact that an “incorrectly sized sleep bag” was used in one of the videos and said: “I want to ensure you that sleep safety is of the upmost importance to Kyte Baby.”

“In the future, we will pay a lot more attention to the products that are used in any partnership and any social media video and we will also do a lot more due diligence before we partner with anyone,” she added.

She then revealed that they have decided to “discontinue our professional relationship with this individual,” meaning that the individual no longer works for the company.

What did the TikTok employee post?

It is understood that the TikTok employee who worked for Kyte Baby, McCall Deason, posted a video that was slammed on TikTok.

In the clip, she used the wrong-sized sleep sack on her baby, which many deemed unsafe.

She then posted a video on the Kyte Baby TikTok apologising for doing so.

Following that, people uncovered one of her old tweets in which she said that black girls have an attitude because they don’t have fathers.

Many of Kyte Baby’s followers deemed this ‘racist’, offensive and unnacceptable.

McCall has addressed the drama on TikTok

McCall Deason, who worked with Kyte Baby on TikTok and promoted its products, has taken to TikTok to address the drama.

Speaking to her 1.4 million followers, she said that she is doing the “best she can” to look after her baby and asked people to “stop bashing” her.

Then, she went on to address the old tweets that her followers have uncovered from when she was “13 or 14 years old”.

She said: “I was literally amazed and shocked just like everyone else because I honestly cannot remember tweeting those things. At the age I was, why was I even on Twitter? Why did I even have Twitter?”

“When I think about it, I don’t know why I made those tweets, because I 110% promise you that I am not that person. I’m not only 22-years-old but I’m a mother of two kids,” she continued.

“I just know for a fact that if you know me personally, you would not think I am that person,” she added.
