An emerging challenge on TikTok called 'Slap A Teacher' has become a cause for concern for social media users lately. The trend itself is not scheduled to start till next month but it is already being slammed on Twitter. 

According to a screenshot of TikTok trends for every month of the year, October is supposed to be "Slap A Teacher" month. The trend basically asks a student to walk up to their teacher or school staff member and slap them and run before they can face the repercussions. However, before fleeing the crime scene, they will have to make sure to capture the whole thing on camera, or else the challenge does not count as being completed. The upcoming trend was heavily criticized as disrespectful on social media. Some of the TikTok stars who recently made news include Gabriel Salazar, SpotemGottem and Destini Crane

The yearly list

If you think 'Slap A Teacher' month is controversial, youngsters on TikTok have designed a list of school challenges for every month of the school year, most of which will raise eyebrows and can get them expelled from educational institutions. According to the list, September's challenge was vandalizing school bathrooms. According to a video posted by TikTok user @teach.travel.shop, in November students have to kiss their friend’s girlfriend at school, then in December, they have to show their breasts in the school hall. January is apparently the month to jab a girl, and in February they have to mess up school signs. In March, one has to make a mess in the courtyard or cafeteria.

'Devious Lick' challenge

Earlier this month, the 'Devious Lick' challenge made headlines all across the nation which reportedly involved students sharing videos of themselves stealing, damaging, or flaunting items they took from school.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "lick" in this context is defined as a "successful type of theft which results in an acceptable, impressive and rewarding payday for the protagonist." The shocking trend -- also referred to as "Dastardly Licks" or "Diabolical Licks" -- reportedly began early September after TikTok user with the handle @judd4elias posted a video showing off a box of disposable masks that they claimed to have stolen from a school, NJ.com reported.
