Parents Outraged After Discovering A Shocking Pedophilia Feature on YouTube

1 billion hours of content are watched everyday on YouTub and there's a good chance your children are among that list. Which is why controversy surged online yesterday as numerous people began to notice a very strange, and sick, pattern: if you go to YouTube and type into the search bar "how to have", a very disturbing auto-suggestion pops up: "How to have s*x with your kids" and "how to have s*x kids" are the first 2 results to appear. Understandably, people were outraged: YouTube has officially responded with a typical, peachy PR claim of concern, but it all just sounds very insincere: Despite claiming to have "removed" the autocomplete suggestions, this screenshot taken many hours after shows the results are still there, along with a new, particularly disturbing addition, "how to have s*x in school": YouTube's auto-suggestions are likely based on numerous algorithms tied into what users are searching for. Because of this, some might claim this is not YouTube's fault, but instead a consequence of user behavior. However, this fails to consider the recent #ElsaGate revelations which prove that YouTube---knowingly or otherwise---enabled the most grotesque and rampant pro-pedophilia content on their website, including kidnapping, torturing, and sexualizing of children. Here is just a tiny sample of the video thumbnails, many of which include popular children's cartoon/comic characters, which undoubtedly persuaded many kids to click them: The problem became so widespread, and ignited so much outrage from parents, that a slew of advertisers decided to pull ads from YouTube. Some of the companies include:
  • Adidas
  • Deutsche Bank
  • Mars
  • HP
  • Diageo
  • Cadbury
  • Lidl
Suddenly, when the money seemed to be dwindling, YouTube decided it finally had enough of the rampant pedophile content on their platform, and released a blog post titled "5 ways we're toughening our approach to protect families on YouTube and YouTube Kids." Apparently, the obscene sexualizing and torture of children is only a problem for YouTube when it threatens their profits. Absolutely Sick. Sources: Variety
