TikTok bans account of man who buried himself to grow page



The TikTok account belonging to Nigerian content creator Young C, who undertook a 24-hour challenge of being buried alive, has been banned.

Young C triggered controversy when he began a challenge to remain buried alive for 24 hours while livestreaming on his social media page.

Upon completing the challenge, the video-sharing platform, TikTok took down his account for supposedly endangering in a life-threatening act which may encourage others to join.

A check on his TikTok account revealed that his profile is unavailable with a note stating, “Account banned. This account Youngcentertainment is no longer available.”

Young C’s stunt is reminiscent of a similar challenge undertaken by American YouTuber MrBeast (Jimmy Donaldson), who spent 50 hours buried alive two years ago to raise awareness about deforestation.

Recently, MrBeast attempted to surpass his own record by spending seven consecutive days buried in a coffin, facing physical and mental challenges before being unearthed.
