YouTube video creator Matt Watson aka MattsWhatItIs has discovered what appears to be a soft porn child ring being openly ran on YouTube.
Watson explains in his latest video that pedophiles are going through videos on YouTube that show very young children – often young girls – and marking frames of the children in compromising positions via timestamps in the comments. Other pedophiles that know what to look for scroll down to the comment section and go straight to the timestamps, often times leaving new ones for the next perp to find.
Watson goes on to explain the YouTube “algorithm glitch” will bring up a plethora of recommended videos that all have minor children in positions that pedophiles find sexually arousing.
In the cases that Watson shows in his video, “Youtube is Facilitating the Sexual Exploitation of Children, and it’s Being Monetized (2019)”, the children are doing normal things, but pedos have gone through these videos and timestamped when a little girl may have innocently spread her legs, or jumped up just enough that her shirt raises up and exposes her bare chest. (Obviously not on purpose)
The hashtag #YoutubeWakeUp is trending now on Reddit with around 26,000 users talking about the subject early Monday morning.
WATCH: “Youtube is Facilitating the Sexual Exploitation of Children, and it’s Being Monetized (2019)”:
Watson, along with other YouTube channels who have picked up on this behavior have also pointed out that there are tons of companies used to monetize these types of videos.
MattsWhatItIs listed a few of the companies whose advertisements can be seen on videos where pedophiles are exchanging information and often times trying to get other pedophiles and even the children in the videos themselves to contact them privately:
Grammerly, Chromebook (Google), Purina, Ikea, Glad, GNC, Lysol, Vitacost, Japenese Green Tea (Jfoodo), Modern Line Furniture, McDonald’s, The Walt Disney Company, Canada Goode, Hemp Hearts, and Dr. Oetker.
Mind you, these are only the ones that he picked up from the handful of videos he was researching (and able to stomach) before making his own video calling YouTube out. Many other companies are running advertisements on these videos that may have no idea this kind of pedophilic behavior is going on.
This is not the first time YouTube has been called out for this kind of behavior.
Here’s one video from June 8th 2018 with the same hashtag, #YouTubeWakeUp that explains how these pedophiles use YouTube to feed their sickness and share material with other pedophiles on the platform. (English subtitles)
YouTube’s Official Blog site posted an entry on November 22nd, 2017 from Johanna Wright, Vice President of Product Management at YouTube where the video streaming giant addresses some of the content that they have termed to be “completely unacceptable” for viewers.
Matt Watson/MattsWhatItIs uploaded a few follow up videos on this account further addressing the issue:
Will YouTube finally FULLY address what’s been happening on their platform and do something about it??
