In such crucial times amid the global pandemic when social media can be used to bring awareness amongst others, some mindless individuals are busy risking their lives.
Desperate for fame, a Tik Tok star Ava Loise has recently begun the ‘coronavirus challenge’. The one who takes up the challenge has to record him or herself doing any unhealthy activity to mock the deadly pandemic.
While taking the challenge, the 22-year-old filmed herself licking an airplane toilet seat. Since then, the reckless challenge has been taken up by several other social media influencers who also flaunted their videos on the internet.
Larz, a 21-year-old influencer, is one of them who dared the coronavirus challenge by licking a toilet seat and has now contracted the virus.

Indeed it is an extremely dangerous and life-risking thing to do when the pandemic is already a global threat. Larz, a California based influencer has now tested positive for coronavirus just five days after taking the challenge.
Lying on a hospital bed, the 21-year-old has posted another clip with the caption, ”I got diagnosed with Coronavirus”.
Larz’s appearance on the famous comedy show ‘Dr Phil’
Before being diagnosed with COVID-19, Larz also appeared on the comedy show Dr. Phil with another fellow influencer Bameron Kall. Larz and Kall talked about their art of licking toilets. Moreover, the influencers also revealed that they have also filmed themselves spatting mouthwash back in its bottle.
Gathering massive criticism, recently, ‘Good Morning Britain’ host Piers Morgan also took a hit on Larz, calling the influencer ‘scum’. According to Morgan, it was pure ‘karma’ that Larz was now coronavirus positive.
”Karma is a strange thing. If you behave in such a reckless, moronic, selfless manner, karma will catch up with you”, said the morning show host.
A concerned Morgan, added, ”I don’t take any pleasure, I don’t wish illness on people, but this has got to stop. These acts of reckless stupidity. That guy who licked the toilet bowl, did he infect anyone else?”
Unfortunately, the madness around coronavirus challenge hasn’t still stopped as more youngsters are posting their videos on social media. The internet currently holds videos of individuals licking ice cream tubs and neglecting all precautionary measures when the virus scare is real. They don’t even care about their own lives. What else can we say!
