20 Surprising Videos From The #DontJudgeChallenge You’ll Actually Love

If you’ve been on Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr at all in the last few days, you probably noticed a whole bunch of videos floating around under the hashtag #DontJudgeChallenge. If you’re anything like me, you probably ignored them for a while until you were like, “okay, WTF is going on?” 

The #DontJudgeChallenge started as a way to combat negativity on the Internet and to promote body positivity. I’m not sure where that initial goal went, because the videos quickly morphed into being more insulting and negative than anything else. People posted videos of themselves going from “ugly” to “pretty.” Unfortunately, the “ugly” versions included fake acne, body hair, glasses, and buck teeth – all of which insulted the people who actually do deal with that stuff.

The good news is that many social media users managed to turn it around a little bit. Some people made #DontJudgeChallenge videos that made fun of the trend, and actually did encourage body positivity. Others used it as a way to show off their weird and hilarious sense of humor. If you thought you hated this challenge, think again: here are 20 surprising videos from the #DontJudgeChallenge you’ll actually love:
