A vlogger learned the hard way that you shouldn't play with your food when she tried to eat a live octopus, only for it to suction onto her face so hard it ripped off some of her skin.

The creator, known as "seaside girl Little Seven," shares videos on the Chinese platform Kuaishou. She was livestreaming eating the octopus when she realised it had latched onto her face and wasn't letting go.

According to the Mail Online, the vlogger was attempting to eat the octopus alive when its suckers took hold, which left her screaming in pain and tugging at its tentacles to remove it.

She started the clip fairly unfazed by the fact she was about to eat a live creature, but her relaxed demeanor didn't last long when she realised how hard it was sucked onto her skin.

While trying to rip the octopus free, she screamed "painful" and "I can't remove it," according to the Mail Online.

When the octopus finally came off, it left a small wound in her cheek. The vlogger said "My face is disfigured" and "I'll eat it in the next video."

On the vlogger's Kuaishou account, there are other videos of her enjoying seafood, the Mail reported. One shows her playing with a live octopus at the beach, and another features her eating spiced octopus in a mukbang (a live broadcast in which the host eats large amounts of food).

She has reportedly said in past videos that she doesn't understand why she's never gained popularity.

Her altercation with the feisty octopus may have changed all that, however, as the Mail reports she's now a trending topic on China's social-media platforms, like Weibo.

Her attempted feasting has been watched all over the world. On Twitter, one person wrote: "That will teach her a lesson not to play with Octopus. Poor baby must have been terrified and eaten alive."

"My goodness!" another wrote. "Why would you risk eating something that can suck your face off first?"

"Octopus 1, Vlogger 0," another concluded.
