The Chinese video-sharing application TikTok is very popular, especially among young users. The viral #skullbreaker challenge on the platform has caused many serious injuries, and families are very concerned about their children. TikTok, who wants to prevent the dangers that may occur, has banned this challenge on its platform and now users receive a warning message when they share a post with the #skullbreakerchallenge tag.
TikTok is one of the most popular social media applications today and the number of its users is increasing day by day. This application, which is very popular especially among the Z generation, has begun to warn its users due to the increasing popularity of Skull Breaker Challenge, which can cause serious health problems.
In the Skull-Breaker Challenge, three people stand side by side, jumping in turn, and two people on the right and left sides try to trip the middle person up. This is what the Skull-Breaker Challenge looks like:
The person who falls down inevitably crashes his head on the ground most of the time. That’s why the name of the challenge is Skull-Breaker. Due to this dangerous challenge, two children in the USA, New Jersey and one in England were seriously injured.
TikTok announced that they will remove posts shared with the hashtag #skullbreakerchallenge. The company has also started showing warning messages to users who share posts with this tag.
The safety of users is our top priority at TikTok, and we do not allow content that encourages or replicates dangerous challenges that might lead to injury. In fact, it’s a violation of our Community Guidelines and we will continue to remove this type of content from our platform. More importantly, we encourage everyone to exercise caution in their behavior whether online or off. Nobody wants their friends or family to get hurt filming a video or trying a stunt. It’s not funny – and since we remove that sort of content, it certainly won’t make you TikTok famous.Have Fun – Be Smart – Stay Safe by TikTok
