Teenagers Are Pretending to Cough On People In Public for A Social Media Prank and It Has To Stop

Ok, I’m super disgusted about this. Not JUST because of the virus, but in general. This is disgusting, what is going on with our kids that they would think that this was funny at all.

Even pretending to cough, first of all, you are spreading fear. Secondly, you’re still spitting saliva into the air. A cough is a cough, faked or not.

We need to do better. Hold your kids accountable for the choices they make! They are putting people at risk of many illnesses all for likes on social media. Really?

An incident occurred at a local grocery store involving juveniles reportedly coughing on produce, while filming themselves and posting it on social media.

Many of us are ill and have weak immune systems. Spreading your germs purposely to others is NEVER ok. EVER. I honestly think there should be harsh punishments to stop this behavior.

Punk teenagers are hitting the grocery stores, coughing all over the produce and the grocery items — filming it and posting it to YouTube. It scared the hell out of one elderly woman who was just trying to grocery shop. Why the hell aren’t these people keeping their teens home??? This is not summer vacay!

Commentor on Facebook

Kids are posting all sorts of videos on YouTube, TikTok and Instagram doing this prank they are calling the ‘Coughing in Public Prank‘.

What happens when someone actually gets violent to these kids over this “prank”?

It could potentially cause someone to get sick enough to die, all for a laugh? I mean, how is it even funny? Does anyone really see any sort of humor in this behavior?


A stark warning for young people who don’t practice social distancing. ##covid19 ##coronavirus ##coronavirusspreading ##springbreak

This is so much worse than the girl licking the toilet. So much worse. This is gross. The people doing this need a huge wake-up call and a dose of reality. A reality that they could kill someone doing this.

Not funny at all. Shouldn’t your kids be at home right now anyhow?
