Kim Kardashian can tuck her children in feeling relieved tonight. Wait, what am I saying? Kim Kardashian’s nanny can tuck her kids in feeling relieved tonight because the non-existent threat of Momo is gone forever. Last week there was an internet hoax circulating around Momo, better known as a statue called “Mother Bird“, popping up in kids’ videos on YouTube and requesting that they either harm themselves or somebody else. Kim had become so angered by the threat of the challenge that she immediately went into concerned mother mode and called for an end to Momo! The part that may bring great embarrassment to Kim, other than Kanye, is the fact that none of these claims were proven true. Now the creator of the statue, Keisuke Aiso, has stepped up to inform everyone that Momo will no longer be coming back to haunt us with her long face and dead eyes (which is also known as The Kardashian in many parts of the world).
It warms my heart to see celebrities stand up against any form of injustice because it truly shows that they care about people. This, however, is not one of those instances. Kim Kardashian, a notorious specter of the internet, must have been on YouTube recently searching for “number of times Kim Kardashian has smiled” when she discovered the potentially dangerous Momo Challenge, which is allegedly aimed at young children instructing them to harm themselves through splicing an eerie image into videos aimed at kids like Peppa Pig. And since this is something that’s based within Kim’s home planet of The Internet (where all of her selfies rest comfortably in infamy), she has decided that it’s time for everyone to join forces and fight against the threat of Momo!
Taylor Swift has a lot of titles like gazillionaire pop star, sole recipient of the Taylor Swift Award, self-proclaimed lightning rod for slut-shaming, leader of a squad of mostly skinny models and Dream Phone grand champion (I’m guessing), but there’s one title she probably isn’t happy about. Taylor is apparently worshipped as an Aryan goddess by a group of neo-Nazis on the Internet. One minute you’re the target of a Hitler quotes meme and posing next to a dude with a swastika on his shirt, and the next minute you’re the Aphrodite of white supremacy.
