TikTok star faces backlash for spilling milk on subway and passengers as prank



Josh Popkin, a prank TikTok star with 3.3 million followers, is taking heat for two videos described as "privileged" and "selfish”. The comedian pours himself a crate full of Fruity Pebbles and milk before spilling the concoction on the floor of a New York subway car full of people wearing masks, splashing the users.

Criticism quickly arrived, ranging from noting the sheer privilege, people calling him out that we are in a pandemic and if he could have COVID, people in the subway are likely to get it too, over a prank or, the cleaning staff having to clean after the stunt.

Even the New York's transit authority and the New York Police Department's Office of the Deputy Commissioner of Public Information have responded to the incident, since this potentially endangered essential workers and passengers.
