The video-based social media platform TikTok is being sued in the U.S. for allegedly serving up the harmful “Blackout Challenge” to children, who died while trying out the viral dare.

Two girls, aged eight and nine, died while attempting the challenge in 2021 after seeing videos of it on TikTok. Their parents are now being represented by the Social Media Victims Law Centre (SMVLC).
