    Sensationalism.

    Seems to be our culture. At least in America. I mean, it's the same with the news media.

    We are fed snippets the most extreme situations, without any idea of the background and the full story. They are replayed over and over again with hyper-focused commentary. You would think nothing else is going on in the world.

    Various celebrities and politicians are followed around and made fun of. And people--ADULTS--love it. Most seem to believe that celebrities and politicians deserve this treatment because they enjoy publicity. Meanwhile, nobody is connecting the behavior that the media is modelling with the supposedly big bullying problem that is ongoing in schools.

    Ratings, baby.

    I dont believe for a minute that it is ok for anyone to hit anyone. This sounds like yet another stupid show with immature people acting out for the camera.

    I have a 32 yr old son and I would never be ok with him hitting anyone.

    I agree with it's never ok to hit anyone, however a man has much more strength than a woman, and can cause more damage. Of course, that's a different topic for a different day. JMO...

    Either way, I have no idea how "Tic Tok" works.

    TikTok is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service. It is used to create short dance, lip-sync, comedy and talent videos.

    "In the United States, 52% of TikTok users are iPhone users. While TikTok has a neutral gender-bias format, 44% of TikTok users are female while 56% are male. TikTok's geographical use has shown that 43% of new users are from India. TikTok has proven to attract the younger generation, as 41% of its users are between the ages of 16 and 24. Among these TikTok users, 90% say they use the app on a daily basis."

    I'm having troubles adding a link. Haven't had success with it here for a while?
    Anyways, just search TikTok as there's other controversy surrounding it. They've been accused of data mining without consent. Lots of articles if anyone is interested.

    Violence is not acceptable.

    To be honest, I'm amazed at how many challenges are absolute nonsense; yet, they've got heaps of followers. Thinking is apparently too much work, lol! In fact, there was a meme saying: "If they had called it the 'Stay at Home Challenge' and posted it on Facebook, the virus would be gone by now."
