There is another online dare that has young people not only getting hurt, but also dying as well.
Johnson & Johnson is urging parents to be mindful of a Benadryl TikTok challenge that has resulted in at least one death and several hospitalizations. The viral challenge pushes participants to take enough of the over-the-counter allergy medicine that they start to hallucinate and then post their experience on TikTok.
A 15-year-old girl in Oklahoma has died from performing in the challenge.
Three teenagers in Texas were “hospitalized in May” after they took part. This all lead to Johnson & Johnson to issue a statement.
