Porn hackers infiltrate 'Sesame Street' YouTube page

For a brief period on Sunday, Sesame Street‘s YouTube page became no place for children. According to CNN, the show page for the popular kids’ series was overrun by porn hackers who reprogrammed the site with X-rated videos.

The page was immediately taken down — the site instead told users it was briefly offline “due to repeated or severe violations of our community guidelines” — and Sesame Workshop released an apology quickly after the incident. “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 also addressed the incident to CNN: “YouTube’s Community Guidelines prohibit graphic content … As always, we remove inappropriate material as soon as we are made aware of it.”

Though it’s not known who is responsible for the hacking yet, 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 the community guidelines.”

    we all have really wanted to see Bert on Ernie porn for a long time. And “C” doesnt just stand for cookie anymore, and I’m sure the count loved to get to sixty nine-ah ah ah

  • BJG

    This so wrong. I have no problem with consenting adults watching or making porn, but to deliberately trick kids into watching this stuff is … well, there are no words for it.

    • if youthink about it

      fun comes to mind

      • No

        Idiotic does.

      • Jane

        That’s your idea of fun? It’s called child molestation actually. Think about it dumba**.

    • Cameron J

    It’s better than the brain dead mush coming from public broadcasting.

    • Oh no!

      What mush would that be, Richard? Can you give us some examples?

        Rick Steve’s Europe

      • Jane

        Meme- maybe you should try visiting Europe sometime. You might actually learn something.

    • JfromCanada

      So filling children’s minds with smut is actually better than teaching them how to be literate and morally ethical? Our species is truly doomed…..

  • Arcticrose

    That’s just sick.

  • Kim

    Lame.

  • Chris

    Oh God, WHAT IS BIG BIRD DOING TO ELMO!?

  • pk

    contamination of innocent minds is the prelude to social collapse. find these ‘funsters’ and lock them away for say, about 20/30 years. don’t bother with fines, money means nothing to those slobs. on the other hand, teach children honestly what those sex organs are for early on, so they can make the distinction between sex and choice.

  • Idiots

    Low lives!!!! Even some of the people who comment here are lowlives who have no morals.

  • Ben

    Considering all the hateful posts when it was announced that Sesame Streets would be talking about hunger, I am not surprised in the least that people hacked into the show’s YouTube page. With the number of people unemployed at 9% (at least), there are probably a great deal of starving Americans, yet when Sesame Street tries to address the subject, the haters come out in full force to attack the program. I would not be surprised if the attack was a response by the people who despise Sesame Street for talking about hunger in America.

  • Crabbieappleton

    It shows the presence of pedophiles in the porn industry. And among those who think such a stunt is funny.

    • RyanK

      You make it sound as if the porn industry is directly responsible for this. I’m not sure how you draw that line. More than likely, this is the doing of some sick-minded hackers. Call them pedophiles if you wish, but nothing here ties them to being part of the porn industry.

      • Jane

        Except for the part that they put porn on Sesame Street.

  • citizen of planet earth

    Look at the statistics, you realize that 90 percent of the world’s savings was being sucked out of the system by the US military-industrial complex.
    Ninety percent of the US budget is going to the military.

    There’s an easy way to check. Just look at the US external trade deficit and compare it to the US military budget. You’ll find an amazing similarity over the years.
    People these are diversion problems. Follow the money to understand the war that is going on.
    I hope the cracker that hacked the site get thrown in jail for a long long time-you deserve it.

    • tim james

      well thats just blatantly false, 60% of the budget goes to entitlements and 20% is dedicated to paying off the interest on debt so only around 15% is spent on military

  • cn

    the internet is for porn.

  • umadbro?

    I love how a third of these comments are expressing pure outrage, a another third of them are making meaningful social commentary out of this incident, and the rest are HILARIOUS jokes about what “Sesame Street Porn” would look like. Anybody else think of LemonDemon’s “Song of the Count” remix?

    • Robert Pen

      o bo ho kids got to watch porn 10 years b4 they usually would who cares, they wont remember and if not its at least another example of how messed up the world is now and personally i find it hilarious

      • Jane

        Bo ho? Did you mean boo hoo? How about you learn something about putting proper letter groupings together to form the correct sound you are trying to make. & you’re wrong- they DO remember it & its a form o child molestation. Would you say “Bo ho” if some teacher decided to take some elementary kids into a room & show them these exact videos? I’m assuming you don’t have kids- so imagine maybe a niece or nephew? If you do have kids – I’m just going to come right out & say that you ARE a terrible parent.
