Bavaria: Police are investigating racist insults online

Passau (dpa / lby) - the criminal police and the public prosecutor's office are investigating in Passau because of racist insults in a Tiktok video. Because of the clip on the platform, there are several ads, said the police headquarters in Lower Bavaria on Tuesday. The investigation ran against several alleged participants. The clip shows a video call in which two people racially insult their black conversation partner, according to the investigators.

The police are now investigating a 22-year-old and a 20-year-old from Passau, but also against the person concerned. The police explained that he recorded the video call without the knowledge or consent of his chat partners and published it on his Tiktok channel. In addition, he is said to have insulted his interlocutors in the video call made in January, but this cannot be seen in the excerpt published in May.

Police found the video about a user tagged in the video who called for ads in another video. In this she also shows two Facebook profiles that should belong to the two suspects. "Investigations revealed, however, that a 19-year-old from the Passau district was wrongly marked there," the police said. The criminal police are therefore investigating the user for false suspicion.

The 22-year-old suspect and the 19-year-old, who was wrongly suspected, had filed a complaint "because they were insulted and threatened several times as a result of the shitstorm that ensued," the press release said. Both should have deactivated their publicly known Facebook profiles.

This case shows the consequences of careless actions on the Internet, the police said. "The "fun" of insulting one another late at night with strangers via a chat platform can obviously very quickly turn into a serious investigation."
