An article claiming that a man named Curtis Williamz was seriously injured “doing the snow challenge” is just satire.
The short article was published on the satire website Huzlers.com, which posts mostly fake news. On the website’s Facebook, it says it is for “your daily laugh!” On the bottom of the Huzlers page, it says the site “is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelieve (sic).”
The headline of the satire article reads: “MAN LOSES HIS PEN*S TO FROSTBITE AFTER DOING THE SNOW CHALLENGE.”
“Curtis uploaded a video onto facebook January 6th at around 12pm the video shows him in the n*de doing flips and diving inside the snow,” the hoax article reads
It added: “The snow challenge is a popular trend amongst Facebook users the point of the challenge is to dive into the snow completely [nude].”
Since it was published earlier this week, the article has generated more than 35,000 “likes” and shares on Facebook.
There’s no media coverage of the incident.
Huzlers.com also has articles saying that Tupac Shakur gave a “secret performance for [the] Illuminati,” the secret society. Another said that Vine child sensation Lil Terio was “kidnapped by [the] Mexican cartel,” and one said UFC star Anderson Silva faked his gruesome leg injury during UFC 168 two weeks ago.
