Bloody Mary . There are many versions of her story, but they all have one prevailing theme that says if you say her name a few times while looking in a mirror, and/or fail to spread a chain letter story, she will get you.
It is a death chain letter hoax!
That means, it is all a lie, folks, Bloody Mary will never hurt or kill you for any reason, let alone chanting her name at a mirror, or not forwarding/reposting any meme! Neither will Mickey Mouse or anyone else.
The most widely-spread version of the hoax pre-2013, scared kids off Mickey Mouse and made them afraid of mirrors. The next two most popular are the Teddy meme, and the Chelsey Warner Lauren meme, both make references to Bloody Mary in their hoaxes.
More have cropped up since.
There is another involving a faux messenger chat with Jessica.
There is a hoax about Sara's mysterious notes telling her to "run".
In 2013, another version of the hoax started, this time, there were no mirrors in the story, just the nonsensical tale about a baby who was buried alive, brought back up, stabbed by her mother because of all the crying. The meme claims the baby will go around stabbing you if you don't repost the hoax.
Quick on the heals of that one came another about Bloody Mary, a beautiful woman who tried to commit suicide by washing her face in acid because her baby got kidnapped.
There are also creepy pasta stories. One of these incorporates bits and pieces of other myths/legends into itself.
And like all other hoaxes, a pack of lies.
Here is a short list of dated examples where Bloody Mary in some version of her hoax, scared people, but didn't kill them of course.
