Famous South African actress and former model, Ayanda Borotho has sent a word of caution to parents to keep a close eye on what their children watch on YoutTube and other content-sharing platforms.
This comes after numerous netizens reported that a cartoon character known as ‘Huggy Wuggy’ in more than one occasion instructed their wards to do weird and dangerous things as well as instill very dangerous ideas into their minds.
“Parents please be on the lookout for this character called huggy wuggy. (Something like that) I literally caught my daughter watching this thing telling her to cut herself and kill herself. I broke her phone out of shock and disabled YouTube from all our TVs (mind you I have an age restriction on all the devices). it’s so scary that kids arent safe from this messed up world”.
Sharing the post on her Instagram, Ayanda Borotho revealed that she actually checked the cartoon herself and was disgusted at the kind of content being fed to innocent children online.
“Please spread this to parents and guardians. Please check what your kids are watching on YouTube. I checked this out myself after my sister-in-law alerted me to it. You honestly don’t want your kids watching this thing. It’s disguised as a cartoon but it’s actually just plain demonic.”
For some time now, several moms have reported the gruesome activities depicted in the series which features a character named Huggy Wuggy, a horrifying blue creature with razor-sharp teeth. Some episodes of the series saw the character hugging people while singing the lyrics “until you breathe your last breath”.
