Why the Hell Are Teens Biting into Tide Pods?

Desus and Mero weigh in on the bizarre viral craze.

Teenagers might not be partying like they used to, but they'll do just about anything for social media fame. Now, after the cinnamon challenge, the mannequin challenge, and the one chip challenge, teens are daring one another to bite into Tide pods, letting the potentially deadly laundry chemicals run down their mouths, and posting the videos online.

The new craze has parents, experts, and even the NFL's Rob Gronkowski pretty worried, so Desus and Mero felt the need to weigh in. On Tuesday's show, the VICELAND hosts watched some of the bizarre videos and wondered how far teens will go (in this case, burning their tongues) for the likes.
