Teens are apparently stealing soap dispensers and other bathroom items from school to participate in the latest harmful TikTok challenge. Students are calling the thefts "devious licks" as part of a trend going viral on the platform. The destructive stunt \u2014 dubbed both the \u201cbathroom challenge\u201d and the \u201cdevious lick challenge\u201d as slang for the stealthy actions \u2014 has seen kids steal water fountains, hand sanitizer and soap dispensers, fire alarms, bathroom stall doors, hot air dryers and many other major utilities, seemingly just for the thrill of it, according to the New York Post. This has prompted schools to warn students to stop stealing school equipment, cautioning arrest as a possible consequence, and TikTok said it will remove videos associated with the trend, as they are against community guidelines. Mount Pleasant Middle School administration issued the following statement to parents this week. "Dear MPMS Parents, there is a current TikTok challenge that our students are participating in that includes tearing soap dispensers off of the walls in the bathrooms. Dispensers are getting broken and additional messes are being made. Please remind your student that this could be considered vandalism and it is important to be respectful of school property. Thank you for helping to share the message." Additionally, Midland Public School System is aware of the videos, according to Superintendent Michael Sharrow. Northeast Middle School faculty, with their student body, is addressing any vandalism issues and bathrooms have been temporarily closed in some locations for repairs. The trend started when TikTok user jugg4elias posted a video on Sept. 1 showing off a box of disposable face masks they claimed to have stolen from school, according to Know Your Meme. The video gained over 239,000 views in a week, and has since been taken down by the platform. Over the following weeks, TikTokers from around the country in both middle school and high school began posting similar videos showing off items they allegedly stole from school. A song by Lil B called "Ski Ski BasedGod" provides the backing track to these alleged school supply thefts. "Only 2 weeks into school and got this absolute devious lickk," TikTok user @jadenflick wrote in an onscreen caption of a since-deleted video showing them pulling what appears to be a Georgia-Pacific hands-free paper towel dispenser from their backpack and setting it on a couch. The video, which had 2.3 million likes in under a week before it was taken down, was accompanied by a single hashtag: #devious. A subsequent video on the account appears to show the paper towel dispenser attached to a wall, according to Insider. As of Monday, Sept.13, there were more than 76,000 videos using the sped-up version of "Ski Ski BasedGod" as background music, and 24,500 videos using an identical sound posted by a different TikTok user. The tag #deviouslick had 175.2 million views, according to Mashable. But, the tag has since been removed from the platform in an effort to squash the trend, for being "associated with behavior or content that violates our guidelines," according to TikTok.\u00a0 Other students don't like the challenge. Some TikTok users complained that school bathrooms are closed because of missing toilets and stolen bathroom stall dividers. One user joked about being scared to use public restrooms, lest their shoes be stolen from under the stall door in the name of a devious lick, according to Mashable. The trend is harmful because it damages necessary items in already underfunded schools. And, the only reward students gain from participating is TikTok engagement. There haven't been any lick-related arrests made public yet.
