YouTube and Facebook Removing 'Tide Pod Challenge' Videos

  • In a Twitter post last week Tide warned that its detergent pods should be used for doing laundry and'nothing else. A video accompanying the statement included American Football star Rob Gronkowski who plays for the New England Patriots

With the potentially fatal Tide Pod Challenge resurfacing and going viral at the end of 2017, many have started to question whether humanity is doomed. Now, YouTube is removing Tide Pod Challenge videos because they encourage "dangerous activities".

The people behind the Vape Tricks Instagram posted a video of a guy playing tricks with vape smoke.

Travis Sarringar, manager of Hurts Donut in Lincoln, said his shop created a doughnut decorated with frosting to look like the white, orange and blue pods that have been in the news.

YouTube is taking action against a freakish and potentially fatal social media craze, where teens are seen eating laundry detergent pods, in an attempt to stop it from spreading further.

After researching how bad they are for you, the man then eats a whole bowl.

Struff looked good in his opening match and clearly has some shotmaking ability that's needed to counter somebody like Federer. The world No 2 and title favourite went unbroken in his 6-3 6-4 6-3 win on Rod Laver Arena in just one hour and 39 minutes.

Along with the video site, Tide has also reminded people on their Twitter that Tide Pods are only used for "DOING LAUNDRY".

'They should not be played with. Safety is no laughing matter, ' Tide said in a statement.

"YouTube's Community Guidelines prohibit content that's meant to encourage risky activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm", a Google spokesperson said in a statement this week.

According to Youtube Community Guidelines, the website will remove content that "encourage risky or illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death". "If you're concerned that your child or their friends could potentially participate in something this risky, it may be wise to use another form of laundry detergent".

The pods contain ethanol and hydrogen peroxide and are extremely toxic, often leading to diarrhoea and vomiting if any detergent is ingested. Laundry pacs are made to clean clothes'.

I will break out soon… and kill more!
His 41-year-old wife, Janelle Marquez Monroy, an American citizen, faces life in prison if she is found guilty of assisting him. If the death penalty didn't work out, his maximum sentence would be life imprisonment.

If ingested, Tide advises consumers to drink a glass of milk and water and seek immediate medical attention.

The American Association of Poison Control Centers said in a statement that poison control centers have handled 39 calls in the first 15 days of this year related to "intentional" tide pod exposure among people ages 13 to 19-the same number for all of 2016.

There have been 37 reported cases among teenagers so far in 2018, with half of the reports being intentional.

Tide's parent company, Procter & Gamble, told CNN in a statement that "nothing is more important to us than the safety of people who use our products".
