NTSB Issues Warning Over Drake 'In My Feelings' Challenge

posted by Katrina Nattress - 

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has something to say to everyone participating in Drake's #InMyFeelingsChallenge. Simply put: STOP!

The craze that has filled the internet this summer has encouraged fans (and celebrities like BTS' J-Hope) to show off their dance moves while someone films from inside a car. Unfortunately, some people have not been smart about it and have been hopping out of their cars while in traffic or in other dangerous scenarios.

"Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in the U.S. Hopping out of a moving vehicle or jumping into lanes of traffic to show your dance moves is foolish and dangerous—to you and those around you," NTSB chief of safety advocacy said in a statement to The Blast. "There's a time and place for everything, but our nation's highways and roadways are no place for the #inmyfeelings challenge."

 

The online sensation was started by Instagram comic Shiggy in June. Since then, the hashtag has racked up over 250,000 social media posts. Recently, it was reported that Drake cut Shiggy a check for $250,000 as a thank you for helping feed "In My Feelings" downloads and streams, but the social media star filmed an awkward confrontation with Drizzy that says otherwise. Watch it below.
