With many Americans staying home and social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, some people on Instagram have found a lighter way to pass the time and have fun to distract from the seriousness of the situation.

Enter “until tomorrow.”

The latest “challenge” consists of people posting embarrassing photos of themselves and captioning them “until tomorrow” with no other context.

As expected, this has caused confusion and drawn ire.
