While some find the notion of the ‘Milk Crate Challenge’ to be absolutely hilarious, others find it deeply concerning, including the video sharing app, TikTok.
This dangerous challenge called the “Milk Crate Challenge” recently went viral on social media, and needless to say, most people were enthusiastic about trying it out for themselves.
And the internet’s being enjoying it all. Social media users across the globe were left in stitches after seeing people tumbling while trying to climb a pile of stacked milk crates, and one woman was even brave enough to climb the dreaded ‘stairs’ wearing a pair of stilettoes.
But TikTok has had enough, and has now banned the challenge, encouraging everyone to exercise caution in their behaviour.
While some have suffered serious falls…

While it’s unclear how the challenge first originated, TikTok has been the platform that’s hosted many of these videos.
According to TechCrunch, a spokesperson from the company issued this statement:
“TikTok prohibits content that promotes or glorifies dangerous acts, and we remove videos and redirect searches to our Community Guidelines to discourage such content. We encourage everyone to exercise caution in their behaviour whether online or off.”
