Netflix is warning Bird Box fans to not participate in the latest viral ‘challenge’.

The streaming company sent out a tweet Wednesday writing: “Can’t believe I have to say this, but please do not hurt yourselves with this bird box challenge.”

The challenge consists of people doing every day activities blindfolded.

The new trend has become popular after Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock hit Netflix.

The characters in the movie wear blindfolds to avoid looking at mysterious creatures that are invading human society.
