Don't judge challenge

If you've been on twitter and vine in the last few days you will have undoubtedly noticed the newest trend sweeping the site.

We've covered viral trends on twitter before because it, inexplicably, seems to be the birthplace of crazy online behaviour

Users taking part in the #DontJudgeChallenge are illustrating the power of genetics (or, you know, cosmetics) by posting their radical transformations to twitter with the hashtag #dontjudgechallenge. 

We love all these gorgeous people but there's something wrong with the logic of the #dontjudgechallenge.

It's a lot easier not to judge someone when they've spent the better part of an hour applying makeup and doing their hair. The physical "malformities" that challenge participants are parodying are merely things that normal people experience. Freckles, acne, and facial hair overgrowth are all completely normal things that people have. 


Some twitter users are hitting back by exposing how hypocritical and judgmental the challenge is. 


Some people are even doing a reverse #dontjudgechallenge

Either way, if all you're doing is getting dolled up, shouldn't the challenge be called the putting on makeup challenge? 


Have your say
