Kids And Parents Beware: Popular 'YouTube Kids' App Full Of Disturbing Images

By Mark Pygas

The BBC is warning parents to supervise their children as they browse YouTube after kids were able to access fake versions of popular television shows and films including Peppa Pig, Minions, and Frozen

Hundreds of these fake videos were found to contain disturbing content, including videos where characters are injected with syringes, set on fire, eaten by alligators, zombies, and engage in sexual acts.

YouTube Kids is a popular app among parents because it's supposed to filter out content that may not be appropriate for children. However, many of these inappropriate cartoons mascarade as the real thing and are able to slip through the cracks.
