Video-sharing platform, TikTok has reacted to the crate challenge, which is the current trend online, causing more harm than good.
The platform spoke against “dangerous acts” and noted that it will remove content that glorifies such acts, Fast Company reported.
TikTok also warned users to desist from acts that will endanger them.
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.”
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.
