Authorities vs Aubrey.
Since Shiggy’s #InMyFeelingsChallenge took the world by storm after the release of Drake’s hit single, “In My Feelings,” authorities have issued a warning to Drizzy fans everywhere.
The challenge was inspired by Instagram comedian Shiggy, who posted a video of himself online dancing to “In My Feelings” on a residential street.
Since he posted his video in June, fans have followed suit by filming themselves getting out of moving cars and attempting to dance alongside them.
Authorities are now reportedly discouraging people from filming themselves exiting moving vehicles for the #InMyFeelings challenge.
We have some thoughts about the #InMyFeelings challenge. #Distraction in any mode is dangerous & can be deadly. Whether you are a #driver, #pilot, or #operator, focus on safely operating your vehicle. Read more on this #NTSBmwl issue: https://t.co/b9D0IwNemV #MWLMonday https://t.co/vt6oFTbDsj

“Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in the U.S. Hopping out of a moving vehicle or jumping into lanes of traffic to show your dance moves is foolish and dangerous,” Nicholas Worrell, Chief of Safety Advocacy at the National Transportation Safety Board, told The Blast
“There’s a time and place for everything, but our nation’s highways and roadways are no place for the #inmyfeelings challenge,” Nicholas Worrell, the National Transportation Safety Board’s chief of safety advocacy, told The Blast.
“It’s only a matter of time before someone gets sucked into the wheels of the car or dragged or the driver who is recording it with their phone, hits somebody crossing the street,” Joseph Solomon, a police chief in Massachusetts, told CBS Boston.
A Twitter user posted a video doing the challenge and falling on a street after exiting a moving car she was driving. She captioned it, “i almost died.”
