Amazon’s Alexa is Creepily Laughing at People

“Alexa, please don’t kill me.”

That’s a thing you’ll have to tell you Amazon Echo in the near future if we continue down this path. Alexa users are reporting that their robot designed to turn off the lights is giving a creepy laugh at the most random moments.

Jimmy Kimmel tried to get to the bottom of things, but didn’t have much luck.

And this is why I’ll never become so lazy that I can’t get up to flip a switch myself. In a statement released to The Verge, Amazon said, “We’re aware of this and working to fix it.”

If you want more great stories of Alexa coming to life to scare you, you can check out the subreddit on the issue. Or, go out and get yourself an Echo or Dot and try it out on your own. If nothing else, someone will always be around to laugh at your jokes.
