TikTok said it erred in censoring the Acton Institute’s account and content about a pro-democracy activist imprisoned in China.

The China-founded app offered no explanation for what caused the error leading TikTok to remove content and suspend the account from the free-market think tank Acton Institute.

Two videos promoting the film were removed, and the Acton Institute account was suspended this week, according to Eric Kohn, communications director for the institute. TikTok later restored the Acton Institute’s account, and Mr. Kohn said Thursday the videos reappeared on the institute’s account.
