Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel decided to play a cruel, but funny prank on kids for Halloween! The host asking parents across the nation to tell their kids that they ate all of their Halloween candy. And I have to say, the reactions were hilarious!
Though the video was meant to be simply for laughs, it has sparked an online debate. “What I don’t understand is why someone would seriously think it was funny to disappoint children,” an irritated mother noted in the video’s comments section. “Kids that young trust their parents and wouldn’t get the joke,” another parent said. “Very mean thing to do to your kids.” [via Christian Post]
I get where these concerned parents are coming from and all — and I agree that parents should definitely not play pranks on young kids on a regular basis. But people, lighten up! It was a joke, and I’m sure the kids were told afterwards that the parents weren’t serious. I found the reactions to be really funny! There’s no need to be touchy around it. But then again, everyone has his or her own take on parenting.
What did you think of the video? Hilarious or too cruel for these young kids?
