Remember that video? You know, the one with “rich Mexican girls” snorting cocaine and daring their friends to do the “little pass challenge”? It was all a joke. Yup. One big, fat, accidental, Internet joke.
Vice recently spoke to Ber, the first girl who’s video went viral, and got the 411. “It was a bad joke in a WhatsApp chat that got taken completely out of context,” she told Vice. “I know I’m the one to blame and I never should have recorded that video.”
This video of her snorting cocaine first went viral amongst her friends, then social media-wide and finally became a trending news story after “‘The Cocaine Challenge’: The Latest Trend Among Rich Mexican Girls” was published by SDP Noticias. A milieu of other news agencies published stories based on the SDP article without even interviewing the people who appeared in the videos, according to Ber.
Ber is now reaping the consequences of partaking in drug-fueled extracurricular activities and recording them. Her “reputation is going down the drain thanks to a moment of stupidity; all because of a joke between friends that got blown out of proportion.”
