Following that TikTok video going viral, Witherspoon supposedly received some backlash for consuming the snow as some commenters claimed that you can allegedly get sick from eating snow.
Witherspoon then made a follow-up Tiktok video here where she showed microwaved snow from her backyard in which she claimed it was clear and questioned if it was bad or not. “Am I not supposed to eat snow?” she asked.
According to this article, the fresher the snow the less likely it is to be contaminated however, not all snow is deemed allegedly safe to eat. It is advised that people do not consume snow that is on the ground due to it being in contact with potential contaminants and toxins, as noted here.
