School Warns Parents About New TikTok Challenges, But They’re All Totally Fake
With the rise of the 'Devious Lick' TikTok challenge sweeping across the nation, inspiring kids to steal random things from their schools, school districts everywhere are trying to get ahead of the curve so they don't get caught off guard again by a new challenge.
Loudoun County Public Schools sent out a letter to the school district warning about what the consequences of challenges that push students to vandalize, harass, and steal from schools and staff.
The Virginia school district wasn't hit hard by the 'Devious Lick' challenge, but they say the upcoming challenges and trends are dangerous and criminal.
So far, they've accumulated a list of TikTok challenges the school system has found in their research:
- October: Smack a staff member on the backside.
- November: Kiss your friend’s girlfriend at school.
- December: Deck the halls and show your balls.
- January: Jab a breast.
- February: Mess up school signs.
- March: Make a mess in the courtyard or cafeteria.
- April: Grab some “eggs” (another theft challenge).
- May: Ditch Day.
- June: Flip off the front office.
The school system is asking parents to have a conversation with their kids about these challenges, and thinking twice about doing dangerous or criminal things they see on the internet.
What really needs to be discussed, is how absolutely, and obviously fake every one of these challenges is. I don't know who is screwing with this poor school district, but come on.
The "Smack a staff member on the backside" challenge? That's 100% what a bunch of kids are going to call this thing. No. It's way too proper.
I mean, think about it; the 'Devious Lick' challenge wasn't called the 'Abscond with random items from your educational facility' challenge.
Admittedly, the phrase 'Deck the halls and show your balls' is pretty catchy.
Don't worry about these, as a parent. There's no way they're real.
