“Disturbing” Videos Still on YouTube Kids

Earlier this week, a number of viewers reported that there were still some inappropriate videos being circulated on YouTube Kids, even after the company had vowed to do more to tackle the problem.

The Google-owned company said that it would be deploying more human curators to review videos and not just rely on its algorithm. However, BBC’s Newsround said that it still found some videos depicting disturbing visuals such as Mickey Mouse characters with guns, bloodied clowns, and Paw Patrol characters on a burning plane.

Google’s Katie O’Donovan admitted to Newsround that the company was having a difficult time because content is being uploaded and goes live very quickly.
