TikTok Fans Are Injuring Themselves Twerking To Cardi B’s WAP
First Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s WAP broke the internet, and now it’s almost breaking peoples’ legs.
The ball started rolling when dancer and choreographer Brian Esperon performed the routine himself on the popular video sharing app and, well, he totally killed it.
Following this, several of his 697,000 followers requested he shared a slowed-down version of the dance so they could try it themselves.
@besperonReply to @sorschagael Here’s the tutorial for my ##WAP dance! I wonder if @charlidamelio & @addisonre will do this 🤔 Tag them and any other dancers!♬ WAP (feat. Megan Thee Stallion) – Cardi B
Sharing the slowed-down tutorial just five days ago, Brian’s video has already accumulated more than 15 million views – fortunately, I don’t believe there’s been 15 million injuries though.
One unlucky individual was TikTok user Allison – aka @lib_bbbbbbb – who ended up in hospital after giving the challenge a go. She ended up popping her knee out while trying to perform the splits. Ouch.
Brian actually responded to Allison’s TikTok, sharing his reaction on his own page. Along with the video he wrote, ‘When the dance you made on tiktok sends someone to the hospital.’ He then asks his followers if anyone else had injured themselves while trying to do it.
Allison then replied, saying that she was feeling much better and that doctors had to pop her knee back into place because she’d dislocated it. She added, ‘Gonna let the professionals dance from now on.’

Responding to the question if anyone else got injured doing it, one person commented, ‘I just kept getting floor burns on my knees,’ while another person said, ‘I’ve been trying it and I cannot walk. My legs are on fire.’
Another said they had hurt their back doing it, while someone else said they thought they had broken their toe.
If you’re not a very flexible person and/or have the dancing ability of your dad, maybe think twice before giving it a go.
