The story is fake.

It comes from the fake news website Huzlers. The same website has been responsible for other outlandish viral stories over the past several months.

In the fake story about the missing child, we read:

Thursday morning Jasmin Moreno installed the popular app Talking Angela on her iPhone for her 7 year old son Eli Moreno to play with she noticed the Talking Angela app was asking questions that seemed very odd the Talking Angela app asked “Are your parents home?”  and even went as far as asking “What are you wearing right now?” at the time she didn’t suspected that a child molester was on the other side of the app communicating with her young son Eli.

Talking Angela

The Talking Angela app mentioned in the fake article has been the topic of controversy this week, when a year-old rumor that is spies on children resurfaced. Read more about the original rumor and the 2014 reboot.

The Child in the Photo

The photo of “Eli Moreno” depicted in the article actually shows a boy from Central America who was adopted in Nicaragua several years ago and is up for re-adoption.

About Huzler’s

Huzler’s description states, “Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.” The website appeared in late 2013 with fake stories about Vine star Lil Terio and Sharkeisha, who appeared in a viral YouTube video.

Bottom Line

A 7-year old did not disappear after installing the Talking Angela app. That report was created by the fake news website Huzlers.

    What’s your source for this claim?

  • Someguy

    This “Huzzlers” site uses “satire” the same way racists claim minstrel shows are “satire.”

    Their story about this app is in no way satirical. It’s not outlandish in any way to suggest humor or to poke fun at anyone. It’s just an out and out fabrication designed to trick people. I’m almost wondering if there are laws about falsely reporting criminal activity.

      The site is clearly link-bait disguised as satire, with the hopes of posting viral stories in order to earn more advertising revenue.

  • Talking ginger is hacked

    Yeah right it is true I saw it with my own eyes freak there is a guy with a white computer screen that is wearing a black shirt look before!
