Parents Heads Up. YouTube released this warning.
"We work to make the videos in YouTube Kids family-friendly and take feedback very seriously. We appreciate people drawing problematic content to our attention, and make it possible for anyone to flag a video. Flagged videos are manually reviewed 24/7 and any videos that don’t belong in the app are removed. We’ve also been investing in new controls for parents including the ability to hand-pick videos and channels in the app. We are making constant improvements to our systems and recognize there’s more work to do."
The Newsrep.com reports "a physician in the blog post, said she sat down with her son who was having a nosebleed. In order to keep him calm until the nosebleed stopped, she turned on YouTube Kids and they proceeded to watch a children’s cartoon together.
“Four minutes and forty-five seconds into the video, a man quickly walked onto the screen, held his arm out, and taught the children watching this video how to properly kill themselves,” she wrote.
“The man quickly walked in, held his arm out, and tracing his forearm, said, ‘Kids, remember, cut this way for attention, and this way for results,’ and then quickly walked off.”
The mother reported the video and got a hold of friends and family members asking them to report it as well. The video remained on the site for some time after, but has since been removed."
It's not just happening on Youtube. Momo is popping up on Social sites like What's App and apparently on Fortnight and I'm sure anywhere else twisted people can make it happen.
Some people are calling story a hoax.
Real or Not, whether or not your kids HAVE come accross this crap, It's a really good reminder that all kids, especially young children need to be supervised and honestly there is ALOT of dangerous, offensive, twisted. unscrupulous and evil people lurking on the internet.
