Mayer told employees at TikTok and ByteDance of his decision to leave on Thursday.

Vanessa Pappas, currently general manager of TikTok, will become the interim head. “In recent weeks, as the political environment has sharply changed, I have done significant reflection on what the corporate structural changes will require, and what it means for the global role I signed up for. It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to leave the company.”
