Tiktok Banned The Milk Crate Challenge Because So Many People Were Getting Hurt

This summer’s viral craze of stacking milk crates in a pyramid and trying to climb them like stairs has been banned in the app that helped give life to it.

TikTok has deleted search results for the hashtag “milk crate challenge” and explained in a statement that the challenge was publicizing a dangerous activity.

“TikTok prohibits content that promotes or glorifies dangerous acts, and we remove videos and redirect searches to our Community Guidelines to discourage such content,” a spokesperson said.

“We encourage everyone to exercise caution in their behavior whether online or off.” The challenge, like so many viral internet dares, began as a simple premise with often funny results:

Someone gathers a bunch of milk crates and stacks them in a pyramid formation, then attempts to step up one side and down the other without the crates faltering underneath them (but the crates always topple, and the person walking them goes down with them).
