YouTube Is Now Taking Its Own Steps Against The 'Tide Pod Challenge'

Okay kids, we get it. Old people aren't cool. If your parents tell you to do something, you want to do the opposite, but there is a fine line between being rebellious and being straight up stupid.  Stop. Eating. Tide. Pods. 

 Unfortunately since young people can keep chowing down on laundry detergent is the asinine Tide Pod Challenge, You Tube had to step in and shut it all down. According to YouTube's spokesperson:

 “YouTube’s Community Guidelines prohibit content that’s intended to encourage dangerous activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm. We work to quickly remove flagged videos that violate our policies.” 

As in eating detergent!

 Procter & Gamble, parent company to Tide issued the following statement: 

"We are deeply concerned about conversations related to intentional and improper use of liquid laundry pacs, and have been working with leading social media networks to remove harmful content that is not consistent with their policies. 
Laundry pacs are made to clean clothes. They should not be played with, whatever the circumstance, even if meant as a joke. Like all household cleaning products, they must be used properly and stored safely."

The "challenge" has now gone so far, some stores are having to lock up Tide Pods. Seriously?

Twitter, along with the rest of the planet is over it. Actor Michael Rappaport has a few choice words in the following clip shared by Barstool Sports. (Warning: NSFW)

Are we starting to see a pattern here? No? Well, let's continue the, shall we?

Even Ozzy thinks this is dumb.
