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.

The reaction to this move has been "mixed" among Tumblr's clientele:

Please god, just let this terrible meme end now.
