What the hell is that? Viewers in shock after morning show displays these creepy things
Yvette Solomon's introduction of her WerePups, lifelike dolls that are a cross between a wolf and a human baby, did not go down well with 'This Morning' audience
ITV's daytime television programme, 'This Morning', has had its fair share of odd guests over the years, though it is likely only a few will match up to Yvette Solomon. Solomon's appearance featured her showcasing her nine 'WerePups' — lifelike dolls that are a cross between a wolf and a human baby — with pride, though viewers were less than impressed.
The segment started with presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby introducing one of the WerePups to the crowd. Crafted with a disconcerting detail, the dolls were even fully-equipped with eyes that seemed to follow the viewer around the room.
Thousands took to Twitter to share their opinions on the dolls, with many expressing their displeasure at Solomon's inventions and claiming they could no longer watch the show after her segment. "Those WerePups are vile [sic]. Who in their right mind would call that a baby? They are an insult to humans and beautiful babies." Another commented, "Just no! I can't watch the show now in fear that that thing will pop up again!!"
"That is blooming terrifying! I'm actually horrified," a person posted, while two others similarly read, "Can’t watch these werewolf babies. I’ve switched to another channel. #ThisMorning," and "Well done keeping a straight face during the werepup interview @hollywills and Philip #werepup #creepy."
But it wasn't all negative. During her appearance, Solomon explained how her obsession with the dolls began when she saw Asia the artist at a horror convention in Burbank and how they helped her through a difficult time in her life.
She admits that she did "a quadruple take" the first time she saw them as well, but when she realized it was a werewolf baby she "just fell in love". While the dolls are expensive — they are said to cost over $1,000 each — they saw her through a time when she was diagnosed with a very rare bilateral breast cancer, a type of breast cancer where the patient has a different type of cancer in each breast.
After getting the first one as a gift from her good friend and husband, she would go on and collect a total of nine. Each WerePup now has its own name, personality, and is dressed up for the occasion. Solomon revealed that she took them around the world on her trips too and that they often elicited odd reactions from those around her, very much like the viewers on 'This Morning'.
But humanity can often surprise you, and several confessed they wouldn't mind owning one of those WerePups themselves. "These #werepups are a freaky kind of cute but on the plus side at least you don't have to pick up any poops," one wrote, while another posted, "#ThisMorning I love them, fair play to her, I can see the attraction, they're really cute."
