Alexa is randomly laughing in a creepy way, Amazon working to fix it


WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- Amazon Alexa users are experiencing something unusual from their devices - laughter in a 'witch-like' way.

One user, who goes by @CaptHandlebar on Twitter, posted a video of Alexa "laughing randomly" while they were in the kitchen.

"I thought a kid was laughing behind me," the tweet stated before joking about technology. "Technology is evil. I live on a Native American burial ground. Robots are coming for us all."

Another Twitter user, @HeyItsKamo, says their Amazon Echo/Alexa listed off local cemeteries and funeral homes unprompted after they arrived home.

These complaints from various users of the Amazon product have just been unearthed now. But users have been complaining about Alexa's weird behavior on Twitter since at least February.

Amazon has released a statement to The Verge saying, "we're aware of this and working to fix it."
