A school has warned that there will be serious consequences for anyone participating in the Devious Lick trend currently sweeping TikTok.
If you’re not up to speed, the trend basically involves people stealing menial and random items from the school. It all started when TikTok ser @dtx.2cent shared a video in which they unzipped their backpack and pulled out a hand sanitizer dispenser that they had taken from school. Soon people were sharing their own devious licks (sometimes called diabolical licks), including computers, signs, and chemistry lab equipment.
A viral video from TikTok user @drexerss now shows a school has threatened that any people participating in the trend will be arrested and responsible for paying for the damage. At the time of writing, the video has almost 8 million views and 2.2 million likes.
“For those that are participating, please know that when we do catch you, we will discipline you to the fullest extent, and you will be arrested, and you will be responsible for any of the monetary damages that have been done. So again, this needs to stop,” a teacher said.
The school has now removed the soap dispensers in the school – in a pandemic, no less – meaning its students will have to wash their hands with hand sanitizer.
The teacher added: “Because of the antics of a few, unfortunately, we have had to close the purple bathroom for the boys. That means the blue bathroom and the green bathroom are open for the rest of the day. However, because of the antics of a few, we don’t have soap in any of the boy’s restrooms in blue, green, or purple, nor do we have any more soap dispensers, so you will not be able to wash your hands thoroughly.
“Please make sure that everyone listens to this very clearly. When we catch you, there will be consequences. So please stop this behavior now.”
