(Video) SMH: Lil TerRio Takes Ice Bucket Challenge….With Soda

I know this is for a good cause and all, but this is really sad. Accepting the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” from one of his friends, social media sensation Lil TerRio took on the task as promised…but instead of using ice water like the rest of the world, he used Coca-Cola. Not only is this wasting money, but it’s scary that while the child’s weight continues to be an issue, they decide to use such an unhealthy product to promote a good cause. They’ve exploited this poor kid enough as it is…can we get some better handlers for him? (I would ask for his parents, but I believe at least one parent has been with him on the road and we’re still seeing this, SMH.) Lil TerRio has challenged Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled and Desean Jackson.

However, apparently this rule doesn’t apply to young children. Check the gallery to see the ridiculous sign.
