The "Momo Challenge": Is it a dangerous social media game encouraging kids to take their lives or is it all just a big viral hoax?
If you haven't heard of it, here's what's going on. Parents of young children are freaking out about the Momo Challenge. Images of this creepy statue, known as Momo, have been popping up on social media in recent days after multiple police departments posted warnings about the challenge, which apparently urges kids to kill themselves. The challenge is not new, having surfaced multiple times last year, including in a report of a girl who allegedly took her own life as a result of the game.
However, the folks over at YouTube say they have seen no evidence of videos promoting the challenge. It could all be a viral hoax meant to scare parents.
