Because we live in an age of social media, the “challenge” aspect of this dangerous game comes from sharing your scars on social media.
What’s most terrifying is that it would seem from the pics that the kids are actively trying to inflict the most harm for attention.
But as you would imagine, there’s no upside. It’s senseless self-harm performed in the name of peer pressure and boredom.
Some are saying the game has been around for generations, but the ability to share the gruesome photos on social media has given this trend new legs and a bigger audience.
