A new challenge for teens is sweeping social media with disastrous results.
It is known as the “Kylie Jenner Challenge,” and it done in an attempt to replicate the teen’s famous lips.
The challenge involves participants placing their mouths over an open cup, jar, or other narrow vessel and sucking in air until their lips swell up.
Countless young girls and boys have shared pictures of their results on social media, revealing that the challenge often causes severe bruising to the mouth that doesn’t go away for quite some time.
“I screwed up,” one teenage girl captioned her #kyliejennerchallenge selfie, while another complained she looked “gross.”
“Made my chin look like a hickey a week ago and I’ll say I’ve never felt so dumb,” a teen admitted, according to Daily Mail.
“I did the #kyliejennerchallenge and my lips turned purple,” claimed another.
“I hate our generation. It’s so dumb. Like you guys are really sticking your lips in small cups,” one teen ranted, while another pointed out, “Do people not realise they’re bursting blood vessels?”
