THE TORTILLA slap challenge has gone viral on TikTok with videos being uploaded showing off people's participation in the new fad.

What is the tortilla slap challenge?
The tortilla slap craze has taken TikTok by storm by using the 2021 teacher slap challenge as the inspiration for a video spinoff.
Those wishing to participate in the challenge, only need to hold a flour tortilla and slap it as hard as they can against someone else's face.
Before participating in the challenge, the individual needs to cover the tortilla in their choice of condiment such as Nutella to increase the chances of it sticking to the person's face.
The result is a comedic video in which the person getting slapped tries to keep a straight face.
