The brand and government officials have issued a warning about the #LabelloChallenge.

The social network TikTok, which is known for its small viral choreographic challenges, has been in turmoil for the past few days following the appearance of a challenge of a completely different kind, involving adolescent suicides. Despite their names, the #ChapstickChallenge, #LabelloChallenge, or, in France, #JeuDuLabello, which abound on social media, are not amusing.

Because this game, which has several variations, each more dangerous than the last, involves young people self-harming or even killing themselves. After scarification, the latter apply lip balm to their wounds in some challenges. Others apply lip balm every day or even cut a piece off with each disappointment, eventually committing suicide when the tube is empty.

The phenomenon originated on the other side of the Atlantic and was only recently imported to France. The risk was deemed sufficient for the Ministry of the Interior to seize it, calling on Twitter parents to be “attentive and attentive to young people in [their] surroundings [s’ils observent] behavior change.”

The cosmetics brаnd аdvised young people who were exposed to this content or who hаd suicidаl thoughts to “аsk for help” by cаlling “the officiаl help line provided by the public аuthorities аt 3114.” This free suicide prevention line connects people in emotionаl distress with psychiаtric or mentаl heаlth professionаls.
