A new TikTok trend has emerged called "devious licks," and it's getting students expelled or suspended!
The school year has just gotten started, and some students are already stealing school equipment and bragging about it on TikTok. They're posting videos of the thefts, which they call "devious licks" or "diabolical licks," in a new trend that's going viral on the platform.
In a since-deleted clip, TikTok user @jadenflick boasts about taking a hands-free paper towel dispenser "only two weeks into school," and a follow-up video shows the dispenser attached to a wall in someone's home.
Similar videos have flooded TikTok recently, with students claiming to have swiped everything from a box of disposable masks to parts of a toilet to projectors.
Regardless of what they're stealing, schools are asking students not to get involved in the trend, and they're taking to social media to do it. Schools and parent associations are also calling out the trend and asking parents to talk to their kids about the consequences of vandalism.
