A teenager* has condemned a disturbing new craze where people suck shot glasses to blow up their lips to double their size which has been hitting the internet.
The reportedly painful “Kylie Jenner Challenge” works by using the airlock created to increase blood flow to the lips. The aim is to emulate the celebrity and model’s bee-stung pout.
However, for many this goes too far, leaving their mouths bruised, cut and bleeding.Well, hoorah! For once, a teenager* has had the maturity to stand up and tell their peers what idiots they are by…
Hannah Walker, from Preston Park, Brighton, has criticised the craze, saying it is hurtful and upsetting for people like herself who suffer from a rare condition that can lead to cut and swollen lips.Ahhhh. The penny has dropped.
Clearly, she could care less about the damage other teenagers* might be causing themselves. It’s all about her feeeeewings….
“It is bad enough having Crohn’s of my intestines, but at least that is hidden beneath my skin. OFG is an incredibly obvious condition and makes me very self-conscious.
“It can be devastating to a sufferer’s self-esteem and cause bullying and loneliness.
“So when they see people laughing and joking about this challenge and mocking each other about how they look, it can be extremely hurtful.”
Ms Walker said the craze was making her anxieties over her health conditions increase.Clearly, though, she’s perfectly happy babbling intimate details to the press?
*the paper describes her as a ‘teenager’, yet her age is given as 23. Now, maybe it’s me, but…?
