Social Media Challenges

TikTok challenges can be fun and harmless, but there are some viral challenges that can be disrespectful and dangerous. The newest trend has the hashtag “Devious Lick”. This trend started with school property destruction and now it includes physical assaults on educators. This challenge is encouraging teenagers to do this behavior and to video themselves doing it.
