US pastor Mark Driscoll has been temporarily suspended from TikTok after one of his posts received several complaints from users.
Driscoll, who is no stranger to controversy following accusations of bullying staff members, elders, church leaders and congregants during his more than 20 years in ministry, took to Twitter to complain about his sanction.
"What happens on TikTok when you say that men can't have babies," Driscoll wrote alongside an image of his TikTok account status.
The image indicated he has been banned until 22nd September from posting following "multiple violations" of TikTok's guidelines.
The social media platform also warned the current pastor of Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, that if he receives another violation notification, his profile could be restricted to view-only mode.
Driscoll also accompanied his post with a Bible verse from the book of Romans: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth."
The 51-year-old leads a weekly men's ministry which aims to "build each other up to be more like the true real man, Jesus Christ," according to the church's website.
The group has recently started a nine-week series titled "Real Men: ACT LIKE A MAN".
In an Instagram post, he said: "In a world void of strong men and fathers, we want to build you up to bless women and children, and transform legacies for generations to come," the caption read.
"At 'Real Men: ACT LIKE A MAN', I will take you through exactly what the namesake says; how to act like a man," Driscoll explained.
