    "Students across the U.S. are being arrested because of their hijinks committed as part of the 'devious licks' trend, which involves stealing or vandalizing school property.
    Begun earlier this month on the TikTok social media platform as students returned to school, students began posting videos of themselves stealing items from schools – from soap dispensers and fire extinguishers to computers and film projectors. In some cases, students have vandalized bathrooms.
    Last week, TikTok told USA TODAY it was removing content related to "devious licks," including the hashtag #deviouslicks and "redirecting hashtags and search results to our Community Guidelines to discourage such behavior." In response, TikTok users have begun using alternative hashtags and keywords such as #dispicablelicks."
