Liam Neeson’s famous catchphrase could give children nightmares this Christmas
It seems that Irish superstar Liam Neeson could be terrifying some children ahead of Christmas this year – through no fault of his own.
The problem emerged after a mother posted a warning on Facebook about a ‘Call Santa’ app, which sent her son an alarming message.
Kersty Elizabeth Taylor downloaded the ‘Santa Call New 2018’ onto her son’s Kindle.
However, instead of having a friendly chat with Father Christmas, three-year-old Finlee was met with a message reminiscent of Neeson’s hardman character Bryan Mills from the Taken movies.
When Finlee tried out the app he was told: “I will find you and I will kill you.”
Finlee’s two-year-old sister Evie also played with the app and alerted her mother to it’s surprising content.
When Kersty pushed the button she couldn’t believe her ears as the voice on the other end said:” Hello there. Can you hear me, children? ‘In five nights, if you’re free, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.”
Kersty was furious urged other parents to be cautious about allowing their children to download the app.
She posted to Facebook: “What sort of a sick and twisted person would make an app made for Children to call Santa in to this!”
“I’ve reported app!!! Is everyone else could do same! Some people in this world need help. Urgently!”
Amazon say they are investigating the issue.
