MoMo Challenge Is Going As Far As Hacking Peppa Pig And Fortnite, And We’re Seriously Terrified

Just when parents thought their child watching Peppa Pig and playing Fortnite was safe, here comes MoMo. Haven’t heard of the Momo challenge? Consider yourself blessed. This, highly disturbing, suicide game sends a clip onto Youtube shows, and asks viewers to contact a number on WhatsApp. Parents have stated that the MoMo face threatens children that they will be killed in their sleep ‘if they do not contact Momo’. Once they have made contact, children have been sent a series of challenges alongside threats of what will happen if the challenges aren’t completed. Some of the challenges involve self-harm, in which the child is then required to provide evidence.

Haslingden Primary School in England’s Lancashire issued a statement on their Facebook page. They explained: “These video clips are appearing on many social media sites and YouTube (including Kids YouTube). Another video clip is going by the name of ‘MoMo’ which shows a warped white mask which is promoting children to do dangerous tasks without telling their parents. Examples we have noticed in school include asking the children to turn the gas on or to find and take tablets”. Schools go on to warn parents to monitor children whilst using devices.

Everything We Know So Far…

The MoMo character was taken from the work of Japanese artist Midori Hayashi. I mean, the art piece is pretty damn disturbing in itself. There seem to be worrying similarities towards the Blue Whale challenge back in 2016. Both challenges have resulted in cases of child suicide. The MoMo challenge already tragically linked to five cases. MoMo is not a single person or account. There are plenty of people in the world that have jumped on board and created MoMo accounts themselves to troll people they know. The trend kicked off when famous Youtubers filmed themselves trialling out the MoMo challenges. Gee, thanks idiots. 

There’s no doubt that as soon as a MoMo message is received that you should hit the block button immediately.
