What Is The Blue Whale Challenge?

The Blue Whale Challenge is a game that takes the control of players, causing them to harm themselves and even commit suicide.  While social media challenges like the Nicki Minaj and Bow Wow Challenges are harmless, the Blue Whale Challenge is a very dangerous suicide game.  The game brainwashes players, convincing them to try to complete extremely dangerous tasks.
