A WOMAN has unleashed Armageddon by removing herself from a WhatsApp group for school mums.
Emma Bradford triggered the apocalyptic conflict by leaving ‘Astrea Academy Year Nine Mums!’, where parents in her daughter’s class share passive-aggressive messages about school uniform and homework.
Group member Mary Fisher said: “I’d just posted about my little girl’s bad cold, and was happily counting the sad-face emojis when I saw a notification saying Emma had left the chat. That’s the WhatsApp equivalent of going nuclear.
“In a matter of minutes all of the other mums had taken their sides, and we were locked in a stalemate that made the Cold War look tame. One false move and we’d all start saying what we really thought of each other.
“While this crisis sounds like it happened very quickly, the tension has been building up for ages. It’s just like China and Taiwan, only a group of mums at each other’s throats is much more terrifying.
“I don’t think anybody’s going to get out of this alive.”
Bradford added: “I had a WhatsApp tidy-up today and left all the groups I never read. I feel much lighter now, and I doubt anybody notices I’m gone anyway.”
