I chose this topic because my cousins live in California and  a lot of their friends have been participating in this challenge and really hurting themselves.  Many things have gone wrong and i keep getting pictures of the aftermath.

"I'm sorry, but were you dropped on your head as an infant? Or were you just born stupid"

Due to the aftermath of this challenge Kylie Jenner has put a post on Twitter, towards her teenage followers, saying that she wants girls to just be themselves and experiment with their look.  

I believe that after seeing all of the consequences and permanent damage that she has brought upon these children, she realized that she needed to speak against it to save her image.  Not only are teenagers hurting themselves, Del Russo stated how they are also cyber bullying Jenner for her look.

"The dangers of 'Plumping your Pout'"

“The new trend in trying to DIY lip plumping is quite concerning,” Dendy Engelman, a dermatologic surgeon, told Seventeen. “Not only can significant pain, swelling, and bruising result from these suction techniques, but there is potential risk for scarring and permanent disfigurement with repeated attempts.”

This article is more for adults to see what the #KylieJennerChallenge is and how it came about.  Many people have concern for the teenagers who fall into this.  In some cases the shot glasses burst and create huge gashes in teenagers lips to the point where stitches are the only option.  

This article was made during a talk with a dermatologist about the permanent damage that can succumb.

CNN presented this "New Day" anchor for parents to see what their children are doing and why.  A lot of damage has come from this and these reporters are warning parents about their kids doing something so insane.


All of these articles are fighting against the challenge due to severe damage.  These are very significant articles because the point out the faults and consequences that can occur.  Many people have become very worried about it and these writers and reporters are trying to stand up and create awareness.  Almost every source out there about the Kylie Jenner Challenge is trying to stop it because it has become very dangerous and has filled up ER's within the past few weeks.

Although many people are talking about this, not many state where it all began or what made it come about.  I think that if someone were to discuss it from the beginning it would help create understanding.
