The #deadpose challenge recently swept through South Africa and became a trend for all social media users in the country.
A mother, Bontle Goitsimang, has sparked outrage after she took the challenge to the extreme, pranking her toddler with a dead pose. Her son who was scared screamed and cried over what he believed was his aunt's lifeless body.
According to DailyMail, the mother filmed the distressed two-year-old as he cried over his aunt's lifeless body. Goitsimang said she was just having some fun with her sister and son.
She said: "My baby was in on the joke,’. ‘She knew what was going on, she realised it was a joke, I think she is laughing more than crying. I was filming it, it was my sister on the floor, it was all planned. It was just a joke, a very quick joke. It is only fun, a small funny thing."

Meanwhile, the 19-year-old High School student, Karabo Mnisi, who started the challenge a week ago also told DailyMail that the challenge would be more extreme in the future.
"The first phase showed no cuts, wounds or bloody, but now phase two includes people who are covered in blood, who have been violently killed."
Wonders shall never end!
