    1 month ago - By The Wrap

    More than 12,000 people have signed a petition to TikTok seeking “mirror” accounts for parents, which would give parents access to the videos their children are watching.
    The petition follows the death of a 12-year-old boy in Bethany, Oklahoma, on July 20 , who died after attempting to complete a Tiktok trend called the “blackout” challenge.

The boy was found unresponsive with ligature marks on his neck and died the next morning.
