A few days ago we told you about how some students had destroyed their school for a TikTok challenge without any sense. The students were arrested after breaking tables and chairs, breaking doors, ripping out toilets … They even dared to get behind the wheel of the school bus! Well, now the authorities are concerned about another challenge that has become fashionable in the social network and that is running like wildfire through the schools of the United States. The challenge in question is called ‘Slapping a Teacher’ .
As its name suggests, it is about slapping a teacher or school worker, and then running away . Of course, all while someone is recording the scene and then sharing the video on TikTok.
The California Teachers Association assures that there are those who are taking the challenge of ‘Slapping a teacher’ to the extreme, even going so far as to coerce other students into carrying out the aggression . Regardless of whether the teacher or the center worker is injured, assault itself is an illegal act. To this we must add that it is not allowed to record in the center without permission.
Therefore, students who carry out these types of acts face very serious consequences, such as expulsion from the center and even criminal prosecution .
Those responsible for TikTok are already aware of the matter. They assure that, for now, the challenge has not become a trend and, unlike what has happened on other occasions, it has not spread throughout the world. To date there have only been attacks in the United States. Even so, they will be very vigilant to detect these videos as soon as they are detected.
The most absurd and dangerous challenges of TikTok
As a result of this news, it is worth remembering some of the most absurd challenges of the social network, some of which even put health at risk.
One of the most viral in recent months is the tooth file. It consists of filing the teeth using a nail file so that they are all the same. Something that dentists do not recommend doing under any circumstances because what is done is filing the enamel of the teeth, which does not regenerate.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the “Corona Challenge” also went viral. A challenge that consists of licking the public toilets to get Covid-19.
