Can we put an end to these Internet Challenges?
The Keke Challenge had kids jumping out of moving cars, so they could dance.
The Tide Pod Challenge had people eating laundry detergent.
The Cinnamon Challenge had people eating a spoonful of cinnamon and trying not to choke.
Now the Fire Challenge has people setting themselves on fire.
Why? So they can post a video on Twitter or YouTube and become an instant celebrity.
This is beyond dangerous. They pour rubbing alcohol on their skin and light a match... film it... then douse the flames with water.
It went horribly wrong the other day... and a 12 year old girl is hospitalized in intensive care. It's not the first time.
HOW do we get people to stop accepting these challenges?

"Beyond people setting themselves on fire, the Internet is the source of bizarre challenges that beg the question: Why? Why eat a Tide Pod? Why rub salt on your arm and put an ice cube on it? Why snort a condom into your nose and pull it out of your mouth?"https://t.co/muUneMlqRJ— Dana DiFilippo (@DanaDiFilippo) August 21, 2018
