Yesterday, I shared the story about the Momo Challenge which is instructing young children to harm themselves or others. If you read the comments from other parents, multiple parents are discovering their children are aware of this Momo character and many are freaked out about the character.
Making things worse, there are now new reports about children self harming themselves after being instructed to do so by the Momo character. Children have been instructed to put forks in sockets, to harm their siblings, and more otherwise the Momo character will show up to their home and hurt their entire family. This mother was surprised to discover her five year old girl hacked off her own hair after the Momo character instructed her to do so.
A terrified girl hacked off her hair after being caught up in the sick Momo challenge online. The five-year-old was following instructions from the creepy character which originates from an art gallery in Japan. The character has now started to appear inYouTubevideos and has reportedly popped up in children’s programmes and apps. The youngster’s mother was left traumatised following the event and was forced to take her little one to the hair dressers to salvage the rest of her hair.
A hair salon where the young girl had her hair cut posted images of what the child had done to her hair and urged parents and carers to be more vigilant online. The post, from Toddler Trims in Gloucestershire said: ‘So I’ve just had a beautiful little girl in affected by this sick MOMO challenge!! If you are unaware this sick human/mutant is hacking into peppa pig, fortnight, minecraft etc..
‘Any & most children’s YouTube videos, telling them to cut there hair off, hold Knives up to there throat, set themselves on fire & that it will suck all the blood from there body … this little girl is off to the doctors after her new haircut. ‘She is five years old & still keeps talking about momo, her mother is absolutely devastated!!’
The salon managed to give the girl a cute pixie haircut but said that the youngster wouldn’t promise to not listen to Momo again.
‘I couldn’t help but feel this monster has brainwashed her.’ It adds: ‘Her mother is pretty traumatised & turning the internet off for now. She has asked me to make everyone aware of this sick sick challenge & what it is doing to our babys!!! ‘Please search #momochallenge on fb/google & keep your babies off the net… this could’ve been a lot worse!’
This is definitely something parents want to get ahead of now! For more details about how the Momo character pops up in kids videos watch below. To see and example of Momo videos click here!
