Has Tumblr Sent You THIS Terrifying Warning About Eating Tide Pods Yet?
19 January 2018, 11:08
Users of the site have posted screenshots on social media of the push notifications detailing the dangers of eating cleaning fluid.
As you may have already heard, eating Tide Pods, aka those little sachets of detergent you put in your washing machine, is now a thing after a meme unexpectedly took off.
So far, 2018 has seen US stores locking up the pods, YouTube taking down videos of idiots ingesting cleaning fluid and various food companies encouraging this madness by making edible imitation products out of sushi and donuts. 2018 is gonna properly suck isn't it?
Anyway, now Tumblr have thrown in their two cents by actually sending out warnings about the dangers of Tide Pod eating to users like its some kind of emergency situation:
Yep, that is real.
The reaction to this move has been "mixed" among Tumblr's clientele:
I got a push alert from Tumblr last night telling me not to eat tide pods, so congrats folks, you've managed to make the website that I have seen some of the most depraved pornographic content of all time on have morals.— Rachael Krishna (@RachaelKrishna) January 19, 2018

Even when tumblr notifies you saying “Don’t eat Tide Pods!” that’s how you know there’s a problem. 🙄🤦🏽♂️— N!ck (@Nmo_0) January 18, 2018
