Jonathan Galindo is an unsettling character who has been linked with the Blue Whale Challenge, an online game which prompts kids to perform a series of tasks that eventually lead to self-harm and suicide. It is similar to Momo Challenge that haunted kids videos last year.
Samuel claims he created Galindo for his own weird amusement almost 10 years ago, not to scare or bully people on social media.
What is the Jonathan Galindo Challenge?
An internet challenge known as “The Blue Whale Challenge” has caused widespread alarm among internet users. A person wearing a mask painted like either a dog or wolf named Jonathan Galindo attempts to force people to join this unnerving game that involves 50 tasks over fifty days that culminates in suicide – it has even been linked with at least one 11-year old Italian boy’s suicide who took part in this terrifying challenge.
People are being warned to disregard any messages from Jonathan Galindo and report them directly to security teams on social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Facebook Discord Roblox. Reports have surfaced from users reporting he claims he hacked into their IP or account and forced them to take part in his challenge; parents should make themselves aware of such risks when monitoring children online.
Why is Jonathan Galindo in the news?
An 11-year-old Italian boy’s death triggered grave concerns regarding an online game known as Jonathan Galindo Challenge that lures kids into performing increasingly distressful tasks, with its final one prompting them to commit suicide.
Jonathan Galindo made headlines as an intimidating masked figure accused of perpetuating the Blue Whale Challenge, an internet trend linked to multiple teenage deaths. To add another layer of creepiness and mystery, this frightening individual used an elaborate dog mask and strange, coded language during his videos.
The creators of both the Blue Whale and Jonathan Galindo challenges are appalled that their creations have become part of such an inherently harmful game. They hope their works serve as a reminder for everyone to remain vigilant about online safety while seeking help for any mental health issues that may be hindering daily living. Furthermore, they are encouraging everyone to report any suspicious activity to authorities immediately.
What is the Blue Whale Challenge?
The Blue Whale Challenge is an online game linked to numerous suicides of young people around the world. According to reports, its curator sends daily challenges that range from watching horror films and cutting themselves to slicing their fingers; after 50 days the ultimate challenge allegedly becomes killing yourself. Believed to originate in Russia and first coming to public notice when an influential 16-year-old American girl killed herself due to its influence, this phenomenon made headlines globally.
Due to this controversy, Instagram has implemented measures to prevent people from searching for results of the Blue Whale challenge on Instagram and redirect users instead to Samaritans’ website.
Nadia Randle’s suicide in May also appears to be linked to the Blue Whale Challenge. Her family have provided pictures showing her legs hanging off of the roof of her house and self-inflicted cut marks on her body which provide evidence linking this event with it.
What is the Original Cursed Goofy?
Samuel Canini has come forward as the creator of Cursed Goofy to warn parents about the perils associated with online gaming and social media use.
He also established a Facebook page called “Cursed Goofy” in order to spread his message; however, this page has since been taken down.
On Max’s last day of school, single dad Goofy is concerned for his misbehaving son. After upstaging a backup singer at Powerline concert and earning himself an angry warning from Principal Vance, Goofy decides to take an unexpected road trip together to Lester’s Possum Park for some R&R.
On their travels, the couple encounter a mysterious figure wearing a Goofy mask and having a nightmare, among other strange events. At the climax of their adventure they must overcome their fear of going over a waterfall but manage to avoid danger in time; eventually the film ends with an upturned pan towards the sky.
