YouTube Bans Dangerous Challenges and Pranks

By St. John on January 16, 2019

We have all heard of these viral challenges; The “Cinnamon Challenge”, The “Tide Pod Challenge” and most recently… the “Bird Box Challenge”.  What do they all have in common…..You shouldn’t be doing them!

As of today, YouTube is removing any harmful stunts that might cause injury or promote dangerous behavior.

YouTube said in a statement, it will also ban “pranks that make victims believe they’re in serious physical danger, or cause children to experience severe emotional distress.”
