TikTok Trend Leads to Vandalism in Surrey Public Bathrooms

Public washrooms in Surrey, particularly in the Cloverdale area, have been subjected to extensive vandalism over the past few months. The damages range from smashed toilets and broken doors to stolen soap dispensers. Surrey RCMP believes these acts may be linked to the 'devious licks' TikTok challenge, where individuals film themselves causing damage to washrooms and post the videos online. Const. Sarbjit Sangha of Surrey RCMP emphasized the significance of the damages and urged parents to educate their children about the consequences of such actions. The 'devious lick' trend, which originated in the U.S., was banned by TikTok in September 2021 for promoting illegal activities.
