Disturbing 'Momo Challenge' Hoax Spreads

Disturbing and creepy, the ‘Momo Challenge’ isn’t a viral danger to children online, but it sure is viral.

People across the world are spreading awareness about 'Momo Challenge'.

Aisawa, who works for a company that makes puppets and props for horror movies, made an especially scary sculpture of a bug-eyed bird lady monster that was displayed at a commercial art gallery in 2016; it made its way onto Instagram, then to the bowels of Reddit (which at that point was mostly bowel), to Kim Kardashian’s 129 million-follower Instagram, and today you probably know the sculpture as Momo, the horrible creature who tells teenagers to kill themselves on YouTube (originally WhatsApp)...
