SINGAPORE — In a bid to reach viral notoriety, one TikTok user went to extremes and licked what appeared to be a toilet bowl in an airplane.

Ms Eva Louise, who goes by the TikTok username @avalouiise, first posted a video of herself licking the seat of a toilet bowl on her account on Sunday (March 15), captioning the video “coronavirus challenge”.

In a subsequent clip, Ms Louise reassured her viewers that she was “totally fine” and that she has yet to be infected with Covid-19.

In a separate Instagram story, Ms Louise said that she had posted the TikTok video so as to be featured on news outlet CNN, adding that she had “cloroxed” the toilet seat prior to licking it.

She then claimed to have made US$4,000 (S$5,690) over her viral stunt.

The video was removed from TikTok about a day after it was posted.

The Covid-19 pandemic has infected close to 170,000 people as of Monday.

Earlier last week, basketball player Rudy Gobert faced backlash after he mocked the risk of the coronavirus spreading by touching reporters’ microphones and recorders sitting on the table in front of him at a news conference.

He tested positive for Covid-19 two days later.
