People are apologizing to a ‘cursed’ doll named Robert to ward off bad luck
Just tell Robert you’re sorry.
Twitter users are trying to stem the bleeding of the world right now by apologizing to a cursed doll.
In a #SorryRobert Twitter version of “The Ring” — the movie about a cursed videotape that kills people seven days after they watch it — if you see a picture of Robert, you have to apologize immediately or suffer bad luck.
According to a YouTube video about the doll, Robert the doll is “an allegedly haunted doll exhibited at the East Martello Museum (in Key West, Florida)” who was once owned by local painter and author, Robert Eugene Otto.
In the past, Robert’s curse was reserved just for rude photographers who didn’t ask permission before snapping his picture.
TripAdvisor user HowardRK didn’t ask permission and, in a post on the site described what happened afterward. In his 2009 review of the East Martello Museum, HowardRK wrote, “As I snapped the picture, I looked at my camera and it said NO IMAGES. All the 50 plus pictures that we had taken in Key West were suddenly gone.
“We went parasailing the next day,” HowardRK continued. “The boat capt. took a video of us in the air. Got back home, the disc was blank. Went to a camera store and they could find no reason why our pictures were gone and why the disc was blank. I have also been hearing some strange noises during the night since I’ve been home. To all who may read this……please, listen to the nice lady at the front desk at the musuem [sic]. ASK ROBERT’S PERMISSION IF YOU WANT TO TAKE HIS PICTURE!!!”
However, Robert has kept up with times and apparently, now extends his curse to anyone who sees any picture of him on social media.
Facebook user NG Elmer Mancia wrote on his page: “Robert is cursed, so everyone who sees a picture of him may have a bad taste by tapping (accidentally) the picture or been saved. Need to convey a simple apology to him when you see the picture. If you ignore, there may be something bad will happen to you (or) bad luck for many years.”
Meanwhile, Twitter user @Miss AmericHANA posted: “Everyone say Sorry Robert when you see this picture or you’ll be cursed.”
In 2015 a horror movie franchise was launched based on Robert.
