'Sesame Street' YouTube Page Shut Down After Being Hacked With Porn


Sesame Workshop offers an apology for any inconvenience resulted from the inappropriate contents inserted on the kid show's YouTube channel by hackers.

"Sesame Street" official YouTube channel has become the latest victim of online hacking. On Sunday, October 16, the contents of the page were replaced with pornographic videos, leading to the site being shut down temporarily.

Sesame Workshop has since released a statement to respond to the hacking. "We apologize for any inconvenience our audience may have experienced today on our Sesame Street YouTube channel," so the workshop wrote on its official Facebook account.

"Our channel was compromised and we are presently working with YouTube/Google to restore our original content. We always strive to provide age-appropriate content for our viewers and hope to resolve this problem quickly."

A representative for YouTube also addressed the situation, telling CNN that it has been working to remove the graphic contents as soon as possible. "YouTube's Community Guidelines prohibit graphic content," the representative stated. "As always, we remove inappropriate material as soon as we are made aware of it."

Shortly before the page was taken offline, a message posted on the channel mentioned two users responsible for the hacking. One user under the name MrEdxwx, however, has denied responsibility.

"I did not hack Sesame Street. I am an honest YouTuber," so the YouTube user posted on his account. "I work hard to make quality gameplay videos, and most important I respect the community guidelines."
