The ‘Diabolical’ TikTok Trend Has Schools on the Lookout for Thieves
Young TikTok users are hitting some devious licks with the start of the 2021 school year by hilariously stealing equipment from campuses.
The trend started on TikTok in recent weeks, with users calling items stolen ‘devious’ or ‘diabolical’ licks.
What are ‘licks’? Simply put — a lick is a reward, or as Urban Dictionary puts it, a ‘successful theft’.
I know what you’re thinking … we’ve all taken something from school campuses when we were younger, right? Yes, but not like this!
Schools and TikTok themselves are speaking against the obvious criminal behavior, but we can’t help but laugh at some of the outrageous things the students are managing to make off with.
Students are coming home with SmartBoards, soap dispensers, scales, signs and even whole sinks!
What’s even more funny is the fact schools have to come right out and address the TikTok trend and explain what a ‘devious lick’ is …
However, these trends never last. A rep for TikTok told Insider that these behavior shown in these videos violate their guidelines. It’s even becoming harder to find videos on the trend now that TikTok has begun purging videos under the hashtag #devious, or any related searches.
Wrong as it may be, it’s still makes us laugh.
