You haven't lived if you haven't seen at least one video of the “Milk Crate Challenge.” Yes, it's the latest craze sweeping the Milky Way, and former NBA star Dwyane Wade isn't all for it.
Just in case you're wondering, the newest fad involves attempting to build a pyramid of milk crates and then trying to walk on top of them. Sounds like a smart plan, right? RIGHT? Because what could go wrong? RIGHT? Wade recently took to Twitter to express his disapproval of the crazy trend.
That’s a fact 😆 https://t.co/Kor1NJfjoj

Obviously, Wade agreed with his former Miami Heat teammate Caron Butler, who mocked the current generation for the “Milk Crate Challenge.” Hundreds of videos have been posted about the latest online obsession, prompting TikTok to ban them because of safety concerns.
The 39-year-old Wade enjoys a good challenge on social media, as long as it's not dangerous. Or stupid (yeah, we said it). In fact, he participated in the very popular “Ice Bucket Challenge” in 2014, helping spread awareness on ALS. He's also seen copying viral dance moves and other fun trends. But as for the “Milk Crate Challenge?” Nah.
“I challenge anybody—anybody on Earth—to find people dumber than these people! What is wrong with these people? First, you drink the milk from the crates to get strong bones—then you fall off the crates to break them?”
Dwyane Wade is somewhere out there, pouring a glass of wine, and nodding profusely.
