If you’re invited to take part in the ‘Blue Whale Challenge’ DON’T. Seriously, I’m begging you.
TW: Suicide, Self Harm
Essentially, ‘administrators’ of the game contact people they deem as vulnerable and ask them if they want to take part in the challenge. Once they accept, it’s almost impossible to back out, because they basically hack into your accounts and stuff, and take all of your’s and your family’s details and threaten you with it. This ‘administrator’ then gives you challenges over 50 days, with the last one being to take your own life.
These are the challenges:
1. Carve with a razor “f57” on your hand, send a photo to the curator.
2. Wake up at 4.20 a.m. and watch psychedelic and scary videos that curator sends you.
3. Cut your arm with a razor along your veins, but not too deep, only 3 cuts, send a photo to the curator.
4. Draw a whale on a sheet of paper, send a photo to curator.
5. If you are ready to “become a whale”, carve “YES” on your leg. If not, cut yourself many times (punish yourself).
6. Task with a cipher.
7. Carve “f40” on your hand, send a photo to curator.
8. Type “#i_am_whale” in your VKontakte status.
9. You have to overcome your fear.
10. Wake up at 4:20 a.m. and go to a roof (the higher the better)
11. Carve a whale on your hand with a razor, send a photo to curator.
12. Watch psychedelic and horror videos all day.
13. Listen to music that “they” (curators) send you.
14. Cut your lip.
15. Poke your hand with a needle many times
16. Do something painful to yourself, make yourself sick.
17. Go to the highest roof you can find, stand on the edge for some time.
18. Go to a bridge, stand on the edge.
19. Climb up a crane or at least try to do it
20. The curator checks if you are trustworthy.
21. Have a talk “with a whale” (with another player like you or with a curator) in Skype.
22. Go to a roof and sit on the edge with your legs dangling.
23. Another task with a cipher.
24. Secret task.
25. Have a meeting with a “whale.”
26. The curator tells you the date of your death and you have to accept it.
27. Wake up at 4:20 a.m. and go to rails (visit any railroad that you can find).
28. Don’t talk to anyone all day.
29. Make a vow that “you’re a whale.”
30-49. Everyday you wake up at 4:20am, watch horror videos, listen to music that “they” send you, make 1 cut on your body per day, talk “to a whale.”
50. Jump off a high building. Take your life.
The game is also called ‘I’m in the game’, ‘wake me at 4:20′, ‘F58′, ‘A quiet house’. If anyone contacts you asking if you want to play any of these games DON’T RESPOND, and report them to the police. This game has (allegedly) caused the suicides of 130 girls so far.
I’m sorry this a long post but just stay safe, please, and reblog if you can.
