A worried mother has urged parents to protect their children from the dangers of an online 'suicide game' after her son was told to hold a knife to his neck by a disturbing cartoon.

Lyn Dixon's eight-year-old son is one of the latest child to become ensnared by the Momo Challenge, a game which is played on WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube and other online platforms, and encourages children to self-harm.

The eerie game is synonymous with the face of a girl with long, black hair and big bug-like eyes staring straight through the lens.

Children always have, and always will, be highly susceptible. Another reason they shouldn't be encouraged to change sex at so young an age.

I remember when I was really young and my mother saying to me "if he told you to put your head in an oven, or told you to jump off a cliff, would you do it?"... and my answer then was "no"...


Likewise, if some stupid internet shit was about back then where some 'face' told me to stick a knife in my neck... then I would most definitely not have done that either...


How stupid does a kid have to be to have thought it were a good idea to stick a knife in there own neck because some shit on the internet told them to do it...!!!???

Momo must be really skilled, because this scare story has bounced around from media outlet to media outlet, and yet not a single adult has actually seen Momo pop up and offer one of these dangerous challenges. This "report" by Kelsey Kushner chooses the weaselly "Police are warning" route, followed by quotes from adults who find it "sickening" that somebody would target kids this way, concluding with tips on how to protect your kids from the threat of Momo: Monitor your kids constantly! "You have to get in their phones, get in their apps," one parent says.

And yet there's not one piece of evidence that any of this happening. There's a brief clip of a video that shows the image of "Momo," which is actually a sculpture of a harpy by a Japanese special effects company. I was able to track this nonsense back to a story by U.K. tabloid Daily Star, which features a mom claiming "Momo" told her 5-year-old daughter to cut off her hair. This, apparently, is the most logical explanation to Mom as to why a 5-year-old girl would do something so silly as cut her own hair, something small children have been doing since scissors were invented (if not before).

The Daily Star story does have a video clip of this Momo face with a child's sing-song voice threatening that Momo is going to kill you. But it's just completely contextless. The clip doesn't indicate that this video popped up as some sort of insert into social media viewing or during a cartoon. In the clip, Momo doesn't even order the viewer to do anything.

Similarly, this mother in Wichita, Kansas, blames Momo for her young son's outbursts. Again, there's a brief clip of some Momo threats in some video, but it still does not connect to anything.

Yet there's not a single sentence even in any of these reports in which anybody questions whether the Momo Challenge is even real. The CBS Baltimore piece claims Momo has been "reportedly linked to suicides in other countries" without any explanation.

You mentioned the "Daily Star", Is that the Paper that reported they had seen a picture of a London Bus on the Moon ?

Think that might be 'The Daily Sport' (which was never about sport lol)

Though tbf the Daily Star is only fractionally more credible as a news source.

Interesting article Maddog. Has anyone here actually seen Momo for themselves?

Nope this story has been bouncing around for ages
almost always the exact same pic and video

I think you'll struggle to find anything else with it

In fact google is your friend
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Momo_Challenge

The "Momo Challenge" is a hoax Internet challenge that was spread by users on Facebook and media outlets.[1] It was reported that children and adolescents were being enticed by a user named Momo to perform a series of dangerous tasks including violent attacks and suicide.[2][3] Despite claims that the phenomenon had reached worldwide proportions in July 2018, the number of actual complaints was relatively small and no police force has confirmed that anyone was harmed as a direct result of it.[4][5][6][7] Reports on and awareness of the alleged challenge rose in February 2019 after the Police Service of Northern Ireland posted a public warning on Facebook
