There is a thing called the Momo Challange that has appeared recently. “Parents please be aware and very cautious of what your child watches on YouTube and KIDS YOUTUBE,” the screenshot states. “There is a thing called ‘Momo’ that’s instructing kids to kill themselves, turn on stoves while everyone is [sleeping] and even threatening to tell their parents.” She also says, “It doesn’t come on instantly so it’s almost as if it waits for you to leave the room then it comes [on mid show],” she continued. “It’s been on Peppa Pig, LOL DOLL, those surprise eggs, and a few others.”
Kim Reached Out For Help
Kim Kardashian tried to do something to help. The 38-year-old reality star shared the message along with a note pleading for YouTube’s assistance in this alleged issue, writing, “@youtube Please help!!!!”
She also posted a disturbing image of a character, possibly Momo, which has allegedly popped up in YouTube videos, once again attempting to get the streaming platform’s attention — and succeeding! YouTube reshared the mother of three’s first post, writing back: “@kimkardashian thank you. We take these reports really seriously. We’re on it — swipe up for more info.”
YouTube Responded To Her Plea
YouTube responded to Kim’s post about Momo. Kim posted their response, saying, “Thank you!!!” and it says that you can swipe up for more information on the matter. In the attached document, YouTube explains its staunch opposition to violent videos directed at children on their platform, while also stating that there is recent evidence of the “Momo Challenge.”
Youtube stated, “Videos encouraging harmful and dangerous challenges are clearly against our policies, the Momo challenge included. Despite reports of this challenge surfacing, we haven’t had any recent links flagged or shared with us from YouTube that violate our Community Guidelines.”
