Many viewers branded her idea as 'dangerous' and many felt it 'don't feel right' while some found the prank 'amusing.'

"I would be terrified of the elf of the shelf as a child if i knew he was cutting up my clothes in my sleep jesus christ." Said one viewer.

"The way this would’ve permanently scarred me as a child," admitted a commenter.

One realised: "That’s one way to install fear into a child."

"Ohhhh nooo!!! Poor kids… they will be traumatized," worried another.

One parent said they: "Had to swear to my children that their elf would never come near their rooms. They were so scared if that thing. This would have ruined them."

Another parent added that: "MY KID WOULD FREAK OUT!!!!!!!"

Some worried about the wasted pyjamas saying: "I must be poor because I would neverrrrr."

"Bruh I dont have the money to be cutting up good clothes like that." Said another as many joked about telling the kids to wear their 'cheap' pajamas to bed.

Another thought it would upset the kids because they may have liked their pyjamas saying: "I would have cried expcally if it was my favorite pair"

One was also concerned with Julissa's technique, saying: "You’re scaring me how you’re just cutting them without lifting the section before cutting. Luckily you didn’t cut skin."
