Roro Chan Challenge – What Is It And Why You Shouldn’t Do It

Find out more about the new Roro Chan Challenge that is active on Social Media and why you should not do it.

The Roro Chan Challenge is a new Social Media phenomenon that has been taking media platforms by storm. It is a new challenge in an ever-growing series of social media tasks. Most of these challenges have users do funny and harmless tasks, usually to raise awareness about certain social issues. However, on the other hand, there are challenges such as the Roro Chan and Blue Whale that put the participants at risk. So let’s find out why the Roro Chan task is bad for you.

What is the Roro Chan Challenge?

Roro Chan is a new phenomenon that tasks people with certain ‘missions’. However, these tasks will put your life at risk. This challenge tasks you with performing potentially fatal acts. These include running across a highway through high-speed traffic, standing on ledges, or causing self-harm. All of these have high chances of going bad as they are potentially life-threatening tasks.

Don’t perform the Roro Chan Challenge!

History

This Challenge gained notoriety in 2014 and is named after a 14-year-old Japanese girl. Roro Chan, the girl in question was an active social media user and used to undertake various challenges. One such challenge that she performed ended up with her losing her life. She even live-streamed her demise. For safety purposes, I will not divulge any details about her death.

The users that challenge people to such tasks also ask them to live stream such incidents. This ends up propagating self-harm and spreading gore among users.
