So, the crazy Momo Challenge news that took over the Internet this week was serious for a lot of people. But in the end, it looks like no official children’s videos on YouTube were hacked and the creepy videos that we did see were spliced into Peppa Pig and other videos later. So of course, the Internet is now turning on Momo and turning the creepy creature into a hilarious joke. Here are some of the best memes so far.
YouTube has officially announced that it’s found no evidence of the Momo Challenge appearing in children’s videos. YouTube wrote on February 27: “We want to clear something up regarding the Momo Challenge: We’ve seen no recent evidence of videos promoting the Momo Challenge on YouTube. Videos encouraging harmful and dangerous challenges are against our policies.”
But some parents are still insisting that they have personally seen the Momo video pop up during a YouTube children’s video that their child was watching. It was likely spliced into a video after the fact and showed up from keyword searches. There’s no sign that Momo infiltrated official videos or YouTube Kids.
And now someone’s made an Instagram for Momo.
Sadly, the Momo’s Adventures account was taken down, but we saved some of the photos.
Momo even helped bring down the Berlin Wall.
And landed on the moon.
The adventures never stop.
On Reddit one person said her niece was watching Minecraft on her mom’s cellphone and a Momo picture was in the corner of the screen. “It was just there edited onto the video. I took the cellphone from her and gave it back to my mom.” She’s saying she saw it personally, but she couldn’t find it when she went back through her mom’s YouTube history.
However, this funny video has been created, and it’s great.
Heavy found a person on Facebook who had claimed her son saw that very first circulating video. But she later removed her post or made it private and didn’t clarify why.
Some people just want to stop seeing that photo in their newsfeed and Twitter feed.
Someone’s trying to turn Momo positive. It probably won’t work.
And Jason Momoa is now Momo…
