Social media company TikTok has said it is investigating videos posted by people using farm machinery for stunts.
It comes after the Irish Farmers Associations said it was an “absolute disgrace” that people were posting videos of themselves using the machinery in dangerous ways to the site.
The group said they were putting their lives and the lives of others at risk.
This afternoon, a TikTok spokesperson said: "The safety of users is our top priority.”
“We do not allow content that encourages or replicates dangerous challenges that might lead to injury.
“Our safety team is investigating and we will take appropriate action in line with our community guidelines.”
Earlier, IFA President Tim Cullinan urged people not to put their life in danger for the sake of social media.
"This practice is grossly irresponsible and is an accident waiting to happen," he said.
"I am disgusted that people could be so casual and have no regard for the dangers involved in what they are doing".
Eight people have been killed on Irish farms so far this year.
Mr Cullinan said: "Too often, people are not willing to act responsibly and identify the risks.
"All farmers and contractors need to make it clear to their employees that engaging in these practices is a sackable offence".

He added: "I've seen one incidence where there was a guy standing on the drawbar of a trailer and he making a film of the guy driving the tractor: an absolute crazy thing to be doing.
"To have individuals themselves putting themselves in danger, and putting other people in danger.
"I think it's an absolute disgrace and I'm appealing to those people that are doing this to stop it immediately".
