Rob Gronkowski warns kids to avoid risky 'Tide Pod Challenge'

Rob Gronkowski warns kids to avoid risky 'Tide Pod Challenge'

So, they've come up with a detergent deterrent to get ahead of the narrative, and show that, hey, they've done all they can to warn people that you shouldn't eat Tide Pods, no matter how amusing the premise of digging in on a bag of laundry detergent seems to be.

Doctors have already warned that eating the colorful Tide detergent pods could be deadly, and the company that makes Tide, Procter and Gamble, has also released a statement asking people not to consume detergent. Gronkowski says in the video.

Back in 2015, the Onion published a joking article from the perspective of a child wondering what it would be like to eat the highly enticing red and blue-colored detergent, looking like sweets.

Eight deaths as a result of eating detergent pods were reported from 2012 to early 2017 in the U.S., involving six adults suffering from dementia and two children.

The Patriots tight end responds: "No, no, no, no, no, no!" These are people who are going out and actively going to look for them to ingest them.

What started as a silly internet meme has morphed into the #TidePodChallenge - a dare that challenges people to eat laundry detergent pods.

"Why did my video on kids doing the "Tide Pod Challenge" get taken down and striked when there are millions of compilations of kids eating them?" questioned user Niksfinity. The National Capital Poison Center warns that eating detergent pods can cause "serious injury or even death".
