Authorities have watched the #EggPrank trend at TikTok. They are worried that parents are causing long-term harm.
The videos feature adults in the kitchen with youngsters, who’ve been asked to help prepare a dish. Parents make the shocking choice of cracking open a raw egg – without warning -- on the young kids’ forehead.
A pediatrician is not laughing unlike the parents in the TikTok viral videos. Dr. Meghan Martin said, “I honestly don't find it entertaining. They’re literally smacking salmonella on their foreheads.” (Sky News)
