(WFLA) — The 2024 Paralympic Games are still over 450 days away, but that hasn’t stopped the official TikTok account of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) from making headlines — and drawing criticism.

The account, which boasts an impressive 3.4 million followers, shares emotional highlights of Paralympic athletes who fall into six main disability categories including amputee, visually impaired, and spinal injuries.

Some of the IPC’s TikTok videos explain how equipment or adaptions serve athletes in a given sport. Blind swimmers are “bopped” in the head with padded poles notifying them they are getting close to a wall. A teammate guides a blind sprinter to the finish line with an elastic wrist strap while running in “synchronicity.”

But not all of the videos serve to inform.

One video, which has amassed 41 million views, shows Australian Paralympic cyclist and gold medalist Darren Hicks crossing the finish line set to music edited to say “Left…Left…Left…” Hicks’ right leg was amputated above the knee following an accident in 2014, leaving only his left leg.

A comment posted by the IPC page says, “Made a slight edit to the original sound, you’ll hardly notice it.”

Another video showing a wheelchair basketball player fall out of her chair is accompanied by the Family Guy cover of “Walk Like An Egyptian,” where a character set in a wheelchair sings, “My back is hurting from the chair I’m sitting on … if I lay down flat on the floor it usually kinda fixes it.”

In response to the video, one user commented, “Imagine how mad [the athletes] feel when they see this TikTok.”

Another questioned, “How is this the real Paralympics?”

Other videos show disabled athletes set to humorous music.

In a statement to WFLA.com, the IPC said its TikTok account is run by a Paralympian who “fully understands disability.”

“We have created a strong following through edgy and unique content that allows us to educate an audience who might be less aware of Paralympic sport and the achievements of our athletes,” the IPC said. “We appreciate that not everyone will like the content and sometimes we don’t get it right, but we do closely monitor posts, always converse in reactions to them, and learn from all feedback.”

In a message to NBC News, Hicks said he wasn’t aware of the video but didn’t see the problem.

“I don’t feel like they are mocking me, rather just using a song which uses the word left, and I happen to be pedaling with only my left leg,” he told NBC News.

IPC officials told WFLA.com “a more measured explanation” of its TikTok strategy can be found in a video interview with Adweek.
