The “Who Want Smoke” challenge is one of the latest social media phenomena to have swept the nation. It was inspired by the Nardo Wick track.
In the challenge video, challengees tend to hold their phones and other objects like prop guns.
However, the craze has been deemed as dangerous by academics. They say it’s not funny and kids will take it as a joke to use real guns in their challenge.
As a result, around 50 students at West Creek High School in Clarksville, Tennessee, have been suspended for participating in the activity.
The student was suspended after school officials deemed his movements a “threat,” believing they were sending the threat toward another institution.
Police arrived at the school to inform them about their five-day out-of-school suspensions.
I know some parents would be confused as to why students were being punished for posting their challenges online.
However, it is a school. Therefore, they should not tolerate any activities that could cause harm or negatively impact students’ learning environment.
Above all, iIt is important that students who participated in the “Who Want Smoke” challenge learn a lesson from their actions.
