Some of these challenges have even taken the lives of innocent young TikTok users while thousands have ended up injuring themselves.
The latest dodgy challenge that TikTok users are talking about is, the ‘Porcelain Challenge’, and here we have gathered all the required information about it. Keep reading!
What Is The Porcelain Challenge On TikTok?
Before talking about the phrase ‘Porcelain Challenge’ let us first confirm that this is not a challenge at all. A few users are talking about it to make it go viral besides that no videos attempting any such challenge are spotted on the video-sharing app so far.
This phrase started to become the talk of the town after a TikTok user Sebastian Durfee whose handle goes on TikTok as @childprogeny, rolled a video revealing the trend to be real.
He captioned his video, “Help me make videos with the hashtag #porcelainchallenge to freak out the boomers.”
Sebastian Durfee further continues in the video, “Do you think if we plan it together to boomers to freak out about a fake TikTok challenge and what if we call it the Porcelain challenge and we say like “Oh, Gen Z is like grinding up their parent’s china into a fine powder and snorting it.”
The purpose behind this snippet was to make everyone believe that this trend is a real thing on the app.
Is Porcelain Challenge Real
Sebastian Durfee’s video was not the only thing that made users believe the legitimacy of the trend, there also is a fake Fox News report flaunting across the discover page of TikTok.
The News is fake, we have confirmed it already, but below is what the News headline says:
“What’s the Porcelain challenge? A new TikTok trend encourages teenagers to snort powder chinaware.”
As soon as these videos are being uploaded on the video-sharing app, several other users hopped onto the bandwagon and started rolling videos whilst sharing the hashtag ‘#PorcelainChallenge’. This has added to the popularity of the trend and everyone on social media is talking about it.
Though some people are trying to explain that the trend is not a real thing, these videos are rather aiding the popularity of the challenge.
To tackle such situations and to keep your loved ones safe, you are requested to report all the videos that talk about such challenges. Make sure you are playing your part as an informed social media user.
