So, I like to write about funny stuff, viral news and things that concern me about the world. I scour the internet daily to find interesting things to read or to write about.
This article falls into the latter category of things that concern me about the world, hence the stop the world category on this particular article.
I discovered a post by a user of Reddit which is very troubling to say the least.
If you have young children who like to upload videos to their own YouTube channel or you know a parent who has children that do this then show them this video.
It’s a little long but you’ll get the gist after a few minutes. I will say that the video points out a problem with YouTube’s algorithm, there is no sexual content within the video, but it’s the suggestive content and it’s the people who are commenting, viewing and ‘liking’ the video’s that make this particularly troubling.
If you don’t want to watch the video, follow this Reddit thread and you will see why this is so disturbing.
What do you make of this? I truly think this is disgusting and something should be done about it.
Here’s a comment by the original poster of the YouTube video.
Over the past 48 hours I have discovered a wormhole into a soft-core pedophilia ring on Youtube. Youtube’s recommended algorithm is facilitating pedophiles’ ability to connect with each-other, trade contact info, and link to actual CP in the comments. I can consistently get access to it from vanilla, never-before-used Youtube accounts via innocuous videos in less than ten minutes, in sometimes less than five clicks..
Additionally, I have video evidence that these videos are being monetized by Youtube, brands like McDonald’s, Lysol, Disney, Reese’s, and more.
This loophole is wrong, something needs to be done. Its’s being monetized. CP is being traded as well as social media and WhatsApp addresses. Youtube is facilitating this problem. It doesn’t matter that they flag videos and turn off the comments, these videos are still being monetized, and more importantly they are still available for users to watch.
How would these brands react to knowing their advertising is appearing on these videos? Let them know it is unacceptable:
