2 Cents: Momo Challenge Warning

Central PA Live

A frightening image of a woman with bulging eyes has been popping up on the internet, scaring both children and their parents.

It’s also spreading panic, and debate, about something called the Momo Challenge, which many are now calling a hoax.

It’s not just the picture that’s been raising alarms. Social media posts warn of a Momo Challenge that pops up in children’s programming, encouraging violence or suicide.

Child protection experts say there’s no confirmed evidence the Momo Challenge has lead to any suicides, but the picture alone is frightening, and at the very least, a reminder to parents that the internet can be a scary place.
