Netflix’s Squid Game has taken the world by storm, as it has now become the streaming platform’s most successful show yet. It was also said that Netflix paid $21.4 million for Squid GameBeing a big trending topic right now, it was certain the show was going to get parodied. Now it seems the show has led to fights between children.

The South Korean survival drama has grossed more views than 111 million views already. Just a few days after becoming the biggest show on Netflix, the show earned almost $900 million for Netflix. It even had a council in English concerned recently.

As reported earlier, the show’s massive success and demand led to internet service providers demanding more money. This was due to a higher rate of bandwidth consumption. As expected, their demands were met with ridicule.

According to a report by Comic Book, some schools are warning parents about their students playing games that were inspired by the Squid Game competitions. Some events even led to fights between children at playgrounds.

In fact, one school in Belgium, called Communal d’Erquelinnes Centre, took to Facebook and wrote a post. In the post, they warned parents about the series, especially the fact that the show itself is not appropriate for children whatsoever.

“We are very vigilant to stop this unhealthy and dangerous game! We rely on your support and collaboration to raise awareness of the consequences this can bring about. Penalitites will be imposed on the children who will continue this game (to hit other children).” 

Squid Game certainly has a lot of mature themes and content that are not appropriate for children. So it is understandable why many wouldn’t want the show to be seen by children, but with the advent of social media, that becomes a much harder task.
