What Is the Tiktok Stealing Challenge?
It is an effort to steal school property, such as toiletries in the restroom or tools in the science lab, as the term implies. According to Newsweek, the ludicrous phenomena began with @jugg4elias snagging a box of disposable face masks, which are desperately required as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to establish a new normal—something @jugg4elias should have thought of.
This new trend also inspired some new jargon among platform users, as is customary. Along with the stolen face masks, @jugg4elias tweeted, “A month into school wonderfully devious lick.” “Devious licks” refers to stolen stuff, as you could expect. After 300,000 views, more students are itching to join the “devious licks” craze with their own plans.
@dtx.2cent decided to follow suit, entirely disregarding the world’s present health situation by stealing hand sanitizer, which isn’t exactly a sensible action, but hey—anything for viral fame, right? “I’ve only been in school for a month and have already received this really devious lick,” the user stated. The video has over 2.5 million views, but it doesn’t appear to be available on the feed right now. A “devious lick” laptop monitor appears out the user’s backpack in another viral video the user-posted—which received barely 2.3 million views.
TikTok has provided warnings against hazardous trends, such as the recent Milk Crate Challenge, in which people were climbing stacks of boxes and getting wounded in the process, yet the warnings don’t appear to deter many users…until their content is removed.
The TikTok community guidelines address a variety of topics, including how the service handles violent and abusive content, unlawful activity, and integrity issues. The theft appears to be another topic that the company’s executives must address. The TikTok theft challenge videos appear to be still active on the platform at the time of publication. If anything changes, we’ll be sure to let you know.
