Sesame Street YouTube Page Hacked, Replaced With Porn Clips

by at . Comments

As if kids these days don't have enough exposure to X-rated material, someone hijacked Sesame Street's YouTube page and reprogrammed it with X-rated videos.

Christopher Chaney is not believed to be one of the perv hacker(s).

For a brief period Sunday, the show page for the popular kids’ series was overrun by porn hackers who made it display highly sexual videos instead. Yikes.

BERT & ERNIE: This photo has nothing to do with the story you're reading here. But in other Sesame Street news, they are apparently just friends, in case you were curious.

The page was immediately taken down, and the site instead told users it was briefly offline “due to repeated or severe violations of our community guidelines.”

An apology was issued shortly thereafter.

“Our channel was compromised and we are presently working with YouTube/Google to restore our original content,” Sesame Workshop said in a statement.

“We always strive to provide age-appropriate content for our viewers and hope to resolve this problem quickly. YouTube guidelines prohibit graphic content and the inappropriate material was removed as soon as we were made aware of it.”

Though it’s not known who is responsible, a message on the site claimed two users were responsible. One, named “MrEdxwx” denied the claim on his page:

“I did not hack Sesame Street. I am an honest YouTuber … I work hard to make quality gameplay videos, and most important I respect community guidelines.”

You'd better be telling the truth, MrEdxwx.
