TikTok, a popular short video platform, has taken swift action by permanently banning the account of a Nigerian user, Young C, who attempted a risky 24-hour challenge of being buried alive.

The stunt, which was widely condemned online, saw Young C sharing updates from inside a coffin, claiming to be experiencing physical discomfort and considering drinking his own urine due to dehydration.

The ban comes after Young C’s profile was no longer available on the platform, as reported by LEADERSHIP Sunday. The user had initially announced his intention to undertake the challenge on Wednesday, sharing a video on his Instagram account and assuring his followers that it was not a hoax. He even planned to broadcast live footage from the coffin at night, sparking concerns for his safety.

Young C’s stunt bears a striking resemblance to a similar challenge undertaken by American YouTuber MrBeast (Jimmy Donaldson) two years ago, who spent 50 hours buried alive to raise awareness about deforestation. However, Young C’s attempt was met with widespread criticism, with many expressing concerns for his well-being and the potential risks of such a dangerous stunt.

In an update on his Instagram account, Young C reassured his fans that he was alive and fine, but struggling with dehydration. However, his actions have sparked a wider conversation about the dangers of social media challenges and the potential consequences of seeking online fame.
