DENVER - Thousands of parents want to ban a YouTube channel targeted toward young children, because they say some videos contain disturbing images.
The SUPERKIDZ FINGER FAMILY is a channel on the popular video-sharing service with 90 animated sing-along videos depicting well-known cartoon characters, like Mickey Mouse and Tom and Jerry.
Blogger Amber Taylor posted on petition.org that the channel recently released two videos that depicted murder and suicide.
The videos allegedly started out normal but minutes into them, the characters appeared to have killed each other and later, themselves.
Taylor writes, “These videos are not "parody" as some have tried to claim. They are using popular children's songs with popular children's characters on a children's app to TARGET children watching them. They have the videos specifically listed as EDUCATIONAL videos so that they will specifically be allowed on the children's app. THIS is not parody. This is disgusting.”
Taylor reports that the videos in question appeared to have been removed from the channel. Still, she and more than 2,400 supporters want the channel banned from YouTube.
