TikTok, like any social media platform, has seen its share of controversial trends, some of which have been deemed offensive and even posed potential threats to users’ safety.

TikTokers who are uncomfortable with their beauty marks have attempted to remove them using random chemicals or creams without proper consultation. They showcase these DIY removal methods as tutorials, putting themselves and others at risk.
This dangerous challenge involves intentionally blocking the oxygen supply to induce immediate blackout. People attempt this by suffocating themselves or others, which can lead to serious injury or even death.
Full Face Wax Challenge
The Full Face Wax Challenge involves applying wax all over the face, including the lips, eyes, and nose, and attempting to remove it in one quick motion. However, this trend is not only potentially damaging to the skin but also dangerous as it obstructs the person’s ability to breathe properly.
Skull Breaker Challenge
In this trend, two people would trick a third person into jumping while they kicked them, causing the victim to fall and potentially injure themselves. This challenge has resulted in multiple injuries.

People would dry-scoop pre-workout supplements, thinking it would give them an extra boost. However, this can be dangerous and lead to health complications, as shown in a video where a TikToker suffered brain bleeding.

The Benadryl Challenge, a disturbing and dangerous trend that gained popularity on TikTok, has been alarming parents and authorities.

Tragically, this trend has led to the death of a 15-year-old in Oklahoma and several other incidents across the country.

This trend involved people pretending to have autism and making repetitive movements to a soundtrack. It was seen as insensitive and cringey.

The premise involves placing a cooked corn on the cob onto a spinning drill and trying to eat the kernels while it rotates.
