匪夷所思!美国网上兴起“偷窃挑战”,连“小心地滑”警示牌都被偷来炫耀……

几年前,在社交网站火起来的“冰桶挑战”,令更多人知道了渐冻症这一罕见病,使得该挑战得到众多好评,但是最近通过TikTok在美国年轻人里火起来的另一个挑战——“偷窃挑战”,就令人匪夷所思了。

这个挑战的英文名为“Devious Licks”。城市词典把lick定义为是“一种成功的偷窃,能给偷窃者带来一种可接受的、显眼的回报”。

这次的挑战源于一位TikTok用户在网上发了一个视频炫耀自己偷了一盒学校的一次性口罩,并给视频配文:“上学一个月的devious lick,本应该自带一个口罩的。” 根据统计,这个视频的播放量在一周内达到了23.9万。
The trend started after TikTok user @jugg4elias posted a video of himself pulling a box of disposable masks out of his backpack with the caption, "A month into school absolutely devious lick. Should've brought a mask," according to meme database Know Your Meme. That video received roughly 239,000 views in a week, Know Your Meme reported.

在上面那条视频发布后的几天,另外一个TikTok用户也发了一个视频,自称偷了一个洗手剂喷洒机。据统计,该视频的播放量超过了720万。
Days after @jugg4elias posted his video, another user, @dtx.2cent, posted a video showing that he had allegedly stolen a hand sanitizer dispenser, according to Know Your Meme. That video reportedly earned 7.2 million views.

而最近几周,随着大量学生的返校,“偷窃挑战”已经让全美国各个地区都出现了偷窃和破坏公共财产的行为,不仅如此,学生们还纷纷效仿之前的网友,发视频在社交媒体上炫耀偷来的物品。
厕所、洗手液喷射器、实验室显微镜、停车标志、课桌都遭到了偷窃或者破坏。
Bathroom toilets, soap dispensers, science lab microscopes, parking signs and desks have disappeared or been damaged.
而学校厕所成了破坏和偷窃的重灾区。

圣安东尼奥地区的一所学校发布了一组学校卫生间里的玻璃被打碎、洗手液喷射器被强行卸走的照片;而另一个南加州的学校称,厕所的卫生纸卷筒和火警警报器不见了。密歇根高中的校长则报告称,这一轮偷窃热已经从在社交媒体里炫耀战利品演变成恶意的破坏公物,比如故意堵塞厕所。
A San Antonio-area school shared photos of shattered mirrors and dislodged soap dispensers in the bathroom, while a Southern California school said paper towel dispensers and fire alarms had gone missing. At one eastern Michigan high school, the principal reported that the trend had devolved beyond swiping trophies for social media clout and into “malicious vandalism,” like intentionally clogged toilets.

根据美国佛州巴托市警方公布的消息,9月16日巴托市学校资源警官接到报警称,巴托市高中的学校男厕遭到了破坏。
On Sept. 16, School Resource Officers (SRO) from Bartow High School in Polk County School District, were alerted to damage to a boys’ restroom on school campus, according to a press release from the Bartow Police Department (BPD).

两个洗手液喷射器(每个价值45美元)被人从墙面卸下,其中一个被扔到了洗手池,另一个则不见踪影。随后警方对此展开了调查,并寻找目击者。
Two soap dispensers, valued at $45 each, had been removed from the wall with one dispenser found in a restroom sink. The other was missing.
巴托警方表示,在调查过程中,他们找到了嫌疑人,发现了他与被偷物品合影的视频,并以偷窃和恶作剧罪逮捕了嫌疑人。嫌疑人认为他造成的破坏看上去很酷,参与了社交媒体的热搜。
"During the course of their investigation, they did locate the suspect and arrested him for Criminal Mischief and Theft," the BPD said. "The suspect noted he did the damage to look 'cool' and take part in the social media trend. A video of him with the stolen property was located."
对学生的这一行为,美国佛州塔拉哈西市一位有着30多年教龄的中学校长劳达尼解释称,“他们感觉这是网上的一种流行趋势,他们想出名。这甚至不像老话说的‘15分钟的名气’,而是只有30秒。”
“It’s all for likes and what they feel is popularity online; they want to be famous,” said Laudani, the Florida principal who has been an educator for nearly 30 years. “It’s not even like the old saying of ’15 minutes of fame,’ it’s more like 30 seconds.”
另一位校长洛里则无奈地表示“我们已经试了好几种方法来防止破坏和偷窃,但还是未能阻止。实际上,它还在升级。”
有的学校管理者为了应对这种破坏行为,采取了锁上卫生间,或者在有限的开放时段安排人在门外监管的措施。
面对逐渐失控的局面,TikTok终于在周三宣布平台将撤下相关的视频,对话题标签进行重新引导。目前,deviouslicks话题下的视频已经被移除。
TikTok announced Wednesday that it will remove videos associated with the trend and redirect related hashtags. Video results using the hashtag deviouslicks have been removed by TikTok.
这次事件再次给我们敲响了警钟,社交平台如果不加以管控,什么恶果都有可能出现。如果盲目地听信西方所谓的“言论自由”,对网络言论和内容放任不管,这种令人匪夷所思的情况,定然不会是个案。
