Teens Are Putting Cockroaches On Their Faces In A New Internet Challenge

Just when you thought we're way past silly viral stunts like the infamous Tide Pod Challenge and the dangerous Pass Out Game, the teens of 2019 somehow found a way to one-up their predecessors with a new (and disgusting) Internet challenge.
Yep, we've graduated from whacking cockroaches with slippers to straight up putting them on faces.

As far as we can tell, the so-called "Cockroach Challenge" may have originated from Burmese teen Alex Yung. His Facebook post, showing a cockroach resting on his cheek, has been shared over 18,000 times at the time of writing. 

For some reason, young people from Myanmar as well as the Philippines and Indonesia decided to take on the challenge, and... ugh.
