Big Brother star, Ryan Ruckledge has hit out at the creators of the so-called Momo challenge, calling the creators “psychotic” and gives a stark warning to parents of children on social media.
Going on one of his legendary rants, Big Brother star, Ryan Ruckledge took the creators of the so-called “Momo Challenge” to task. The “Momo Challenge” happens when strangers communicate through social media and messaging apps, sending messages that are unsettling to the dangerous.
The stranger sending the message uses the now infamous bug-eyed artwork of a woman with dark hair – which actually has no connection to the terrifying “challenge”.
There is at least one report that a child was told to hold a blade to their throat or have their family threatened.
Taking to Insatgram, Ryan said, “What the f**k is going on with this momo challenge that is all over the news and the media at the minute? Who is that psychotic enough to create an app for kids to go on to and do challenges to kill themselves, like what sort of world are we living in? Like I don’t know about anybody else, but when I was younger I used to love nothing more than going for a game of curby or manhunt or lobbing an egg at Barbara’s window, down the street, because I knew her husband was going to give me a chase like – kids shouldn’t be on social media – 7,8,9 years of age.
He continued, “If your kid is getting told to do suicidal thing by f**king Momo.
“Get them off it. Give them a footy and tell them to go for a kick about in the park. Not listening to this bullsh*t on social media. All jokes aside, warn your kids about it. it is quite scary and dangerous, but take the phones off them.
“Who the f**k is Momo anyway?
