The Feeling Cute challenge first started out as a humorous post online by a UPS employee, but it has now gone viral for all the wrong reasons.
Courtney Muse, a driver for UPS, posted a photo on March 30, 2019 in his uniform in a field. He captioned it, “feeling cute, might deliver your package later, idk.”
Since his picture went viral his photo has received over 27k reacts, 19k comments, and 107k shares. Others quickly picked up on the post going viral and made their own using the same hashtag, #FeelingCuteChallenge.
Though some are posting their picture as a joke, law enforcement officers are posting a picture of themselves with less than humorous captions.
Sammie Warren, from Michigan, noticed a few of the pictures posted on Facebook in a law enforcement support group called Correctional Officer Life.
The captions range from officers stating they may shoot people, plant drugs, use force, or leave inmates in the shower for excessive amount of time.
So far, Warren and others have been able to figure out which department each officer work at and have notified their departments demanding officers to be either fired or charged with crimes of conspiracy to abuse.
Ke’Nya Hill, from the same facility, uploaded a picture stating that she felt cute and may shoot someones baby daddy.
