Teens Putting Cockroaches On Their Faces For “Cockroach Challenge”
The new challenge involves you placing a cockroach on your face and taking a photo.
Yes, a live cockroach.
Our question is – why?
Originated from Myanmar
The challenge – as far we know – originates from a Myanmar teen by the name of Alex Aung.
As of Monday (6 May), the post has garnered 18 thousand shares.
While we can definitely do this, we don’t see why anyone would.
Clearly, we were wrong.
Started to trend on social media
Whether it’s people looking for fame or daredevils proving their mettle, more people started to mimic the “Cockroach Challenge”.
As if one cockroach wasn’t bad enough, one legend decided to put 8 cockroaches on her face.
Some netizens find it funny
While most would find this gross, there are others who try to find humour in the ‘shittiest’ places.
One other netizen believes that Thanos was right to wipe out half of every living thing.
Cockroaches are actually cleaner than humans
There is a common misconception that cockroaches are dirty insects.
However, cockroaches are actually clean freaks and would constantly clean themselves.
They are only dirtier due to their environment that they thrive in.
Not recommended for anyone
Even though they constantly clean themselves, placing a cockroach on your face is still not recommended.
Apart from the dirt causing pimples, those scurrying pests may also cause allergic reactions as their “saliva, feces, and shedding body parts” act as allergens.
Unless you want a chance of a getting red and itchy face, putting them on your face may not be the best idea.
