On December 21, a New Jersey mother Yerelyn Cueva caught her son cheating while doing his math homework at their kitchen table. The 6-year-old boy used Alexa to get answers for his mathematics sums.


Cueva recorded the moment and posted it on Twitter and the short video has since gone viral.

Yerelyn Cueva, 24, caught her son Jariel, 6, asking Amazon Echo’s artificial intelligence (AI), “Alexa, what’s five minus three?” She witnessed Alexa giving her son the answer to the mathematics sum before she quickly burst into the room to confront him.

Her viral 11-second clip has since received more than 8.2 million views. Explaining the incident, Cueva said, “It was just any regular day of doing homework.”

“I’m in the living room, and I overheard him asking Alexa some math problems, and I could not believe it! What you don’t see is after he says, ‘Thank you Alexa for helping me with my homework.’”

In her Twitter post of the clip, the boy’s mother asked, “Lmfao should i whoop him now or later.” Jariel’s mother shared that the device has only been in their Paterson home for one week before the little boy started using it to cheat on his first-grade, winter break homework assignment.


The boy’s mother explained that she didn’t know why her son was using the AI in the first place. She said:

“The funny thing is that math is actually his favorite subject. I was surprised because he knows this stuff. He was just being lazy. Taking a shortcut.”


Describing how her son usually fared with his schoolwork, Cueva stated: “He always asks different questions than the other kids, and has always been very mature mentally.” Talking about how she’d handle the situation for future reference she revealed, “I’m probably going to have to turn it off so he doesn’t just keep on cheating.”


Another woman found a different use for Alexa when she suspected her boyfriend was cheating on her. She tried confronting him several times but he denied it and made her feel paranoid.


Eventually, she set a trap for him by going away for the weekend and left him home with their AI. Everything that was said to the device was recorded in the app on her phone.

The boyfriend had a girl over while his girlfriend was gone and she got the recordings of the girl, from the boyfriend’s work, that he was cheating with and confronted him.
