Last night, teenagers and a few young adults across North America decided to participate in the #KylieJennerChallenge. Since, you know, big lips just all of a sudden became a thing.


Using vacuums, water bottles, drinking glasses and anything else they could find, participants suctioned their lips with the hopes of mimicking those of Kylie Jenner. And the results were horrific.

Many were left with serious bruises, cracks and cuts on their now damaged lips and chins.

Of course, once Black Twitter (p.s. are you on our Black Twitter email digest)? discovered the hashtag, we were like….




…because it was just never that serious.

For anyone who may have missed the live feed of this so-called challenge, we’ve compiled a list of the 8 best fails from this weekend’s utter calamity.
