crate challenge fails tiktok

“TikTok prohibits content that promotes or glorifies dangerous acts, and we remove videos and redirect searches to our Community Guidelines to discourage such content,” a spokesperson said. “We encourage everyone to exercise caution in their behavior whether online or off.”

This ban comes after many responses from health workers online sharing their concerns to people about the damages it has caused and can cause and how fatal it will be for people if they eventually wound their selves from this particular challenge.

Mentally, the challenge does not suit a normal person, something you know how dangerous it is, something you know you can wound or kill yourself with and still people take their time not minding the consequences that might arise from it to do it.

In most of the tiktok videos, it is the fall of the people that people are eager to watch and laugh at it whereas it is killing the person without them knowing, in fact some people started to do comedies with the challenge falling intentionally from crates, does it even make sense? no.

Dr. Shawn Anthony, an orthopedic surgeon at Mount Sinai in New York, advices parents of today that the crate challenge is :very, very dangerous” and has resulted in damaging many people’s health like orthopedic injuries.

The doctor added that it can cause many injuries like “broke wrist”, “shoulder dislocation” and even some serious life threatening injuries like spinal cord and others.

The best is to stay away from this very challenge to keep ourselves safe from unnecessary injuries. May God help us all.
