"I was shocked", Hess said, noting that since then, the scene has been spliced into several more videos from the popular Nintendo game "Splatoon" on YouTube and YouTube Kids, a video app for children. The sinister content is fused into cartoon videos in such a way that parents won't suspect a thing unless they decide to sit down with the kid to watch the entire cartoon.

As recently as Sunday, Hess noted on her Facebook page that she recorded a version of the clip "directly from YouTube Kids" that very afternoon.

The second video has also now gone, displaying the message: 'This video has been removed for violating YouTube's Terms of Service'.

According to the Mirror, he said: "Children can find it hard to stand up to peer pressure but they must know it's perfectly okay to refuse to take part in crazes that make them feel unsafe or scared".

We use a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. As The Post's Elizabeth Dwoskin reported last month, YouTube announced that it was rebuilding its recommendation algorithm to prevent it from prompting videos that include conspiracy theories and other bogus information, though the videos would remain on the site. The mother successfully launched a push to get the video removed from the "kid-friendly" website. That way they can report inappropriate content to social media platforms, so it can be pulled.

Another version was reposted February 12, receiving more than 1,000 views before it, too, was removed from the site.

A video inspired by the "Minecraft" game depicted a school shooting, she said.

R. Kelly pleads not guilty to sexual abuse charges
Kelly posted bail on Monday afternoon and was released from the Chicago jail where he spent the weekend, officials said. The "Step In The Name Of Love" singer was arrested on several counts of sexual abuse this past weekend.

When asked about the videos in an email exchange with CBC News, the video site responded that YouTube is not intended for kids under 13.

Nadine Kaslow, a past president of the American Psychological Association and professor at Emory University School of Medicine, told the Post that simply taking down the videos isn't enough.

She said: "She started screaming and saying "I haven't seen anything". Parents are advised to closely monitor the type of content their children consume.

"But no system is flawless and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we're constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families", the website's description says.

Most importantly, she says, parents need to team up with each other to combat this problem. Exposing their curious nature to such videos can end up badly as they can trigger bad memories, nightmares or even attempt at mimicking suicide attempts shown in the videos. "There needs to be messaging - this is why it's not OK".
