Women are being warned to avoid the viral silhouette challenge as more videos showing how to remove the red filters surfaced online.
By now you’ve probably seen the silhouette challenge on TikTok, with its distinct red filter.
The trend started as a form of empowerment, a way for people to feel s3xy and good in their bodies.
But because everything is terrible, some people have found a way to turn a feel-good trend into depraved gratification.
There are now many videos on YouTube instructing people how to use editing software or apps to change the contrast and color in a way that reduces the silhouette effect.
Because participants are just a silhouette in the challenge, many are wearing less clothing, or lingerie, or nothing at all. The goal of the editing is to reveal their bodies.
Now, people on social media are warning each other about the tutorials and advising people that whatever they are (or aren’t) wearing may end up being seen. The editing isn’t able to revert the videos back to their original form, but can reveal more details.
