Default Momo Challenge

Is there something who could tell me what's the thing with the ''Momo Challenge''?
Is this really happening now or it is more like panic from the people on social media?
I was reading something about it and it that's creepy.
Thank you!

Viral urban-myth perpetuated by news outlets that had nothing else to report on.

No it's real, I've had 2 kids see it during their daily Youtube watching but it's been cracked down on hard. Mainly it was tossed into videos only on the Kids Youtube platform.

I believe all is good now, it is nothing about this anymore.
Most of the time I'm watching the videos with my son and I can't notice something like this thing.
