Video-sharing social media platform, TikTok has taken action on a viral crate challenge, which has caused a stir on the internet recently.
A statement from TikTok read, “TikTok prohibits content that promotes or glorifies dangerous acts, and we remove videos and redirect searches to our Community Guidelines to discourage such content. We encourage everyone to exercise caution in their behavior whether online or off.”
TikTok also warned users to desist from acts that will endanger them.
The platform spoke against “dangerous acts” and noted that it will remove content that glorifies such acts, Fast Company reported.
The viral crate challenge has caused a stir on social media as the challenge appears to be causing more pain than fun.
The challenge involves stacking some milk crates into stairs and forming a pyramid with it.
The participant is expected to climb up to the top of the pyramid-shaped crates and climb back down without destroying the structure.
Unfortunately, it appears that people are destroying their rib cages rather than the structure, as most participants landed with a crash while attempting the challenge.
Only a few participants were able to go up and down the shaky structure while maintaining their balance.
Asides TikTok, the challenge has caused a wave on Instagram feeds and reels, as people from different countries attempted the challenge.
