The latest internet craze drinking game needs to be banned by Facebook immediately. My daughter was “Neknominated” over the weekend but persuaded not to do it by her older brother. In case you haven’t heard of it the idea is that one or more of your “friends” creates a revolting drink for you made up of all manner of stuff – mostly alcoholic, but often with added cat hair, mud, sand, nail clippings, you name it, it gets chucked in and whizzed up and then the “Neknominee” has to drink it. All of it is captured on film and uploaded on to Facebook for much hilarity….
….and then two people die. Of over-drinking a lethal and vast cocktail of alcohol and so far Facebook have done nothing to ban what is essentially us adults having to watch their children kill themselves in idiotic ways.
So, Facebook, take some responsibility and stamp out the controversial drinking game immediately. You need to review your policy and take action accordingly – there will be further pressure from us parents and it won’t stop until you do something about it.
