Of course the kids are gonna defend their dad. He's their dad. But man the screaming and hitting and fighting and anger in that video... People think punching and mutilating their children when they hear "abuse" but I think it's far easier to affect your kids' development than that.

I've seen that sentiment quite a bit in threads on GAF. Maybe not so much in recent years, but definitely a lot of pro-physical discipline people out there for no other reason than that's what their parents did to them.

Out of the clips I've seen, I feel like this is the only one where the kids are acting:

CPS was made aware of the videos apparently but obviously it's not policy for them to comment, for obvious reasons. So we don't know.

Sadly social media has given a lot of really shitty parents an outlet to show off by doing crappy things to their kids. It's almost like a contest to see exactly how terrible you can be. And the worst thing is that the kid's are just props for their parents own messed up want for attention.

But this stuff... this stuff is like a whole other level of messed up. Something needs to be done.

Never heard about this channel before this thread, but watching some of those video summaries is harrowing. They're traumatizing that kid whether they want to acknowledge it or not. And quite frankly I don't see how the video evidence hasn't resulted in him being removed from their care along with a deeper investigation into whether other kids have been abused in different ways.

Daddyofive asking their kids if they're being abused is idiotic. They're kids. They're incapable of seeing the larger picture and they're largely incapable of publicly disagreeing with the main people of authority in their lives. The kids saying they're fine means fuck-all.

The "brah" part just me me go "oh okay i see now" (same with the mother), didn't really expect him to say that. It's crazy.

Edit: That compilation video is even worse, what the.

That's pranks in general nowadays (or what they like to call pranks *nudge nudge*) trying to one up one another, some still stay in the sane side of the road but then you have the more popular pranks doing all kinds of harmful stuff to people, mostly random people, to try to take it to the next level for the views and it keeps climbing. Of coarse they love calling it pranks but we are long past the "prank" part of it, and more into sadistic territory.

The thing is claiming its fake and exaggerated does nothing considering the actual context of this stuff. You can't "fake" screaming and swearing at your child, pushing them into a bookshelf (without apologizing or saying anything if it was a mistake), hitting them, making them slap each other, watching and doing nothing as they hit or abuse one another, etc. Even if you were to humor these parents and believe that the kids are acting in every single video (which even they said wasn't true, they said there were sometimes genuine reactions), that doesn't make all that stuff go away, nor does it make the fact they are abusing them simply by making these videos in the first place.

Like fuck, think about what's going on with Cody at school if other kids have seen this stuff. edit: Who am I kidding, they definitely have.

But we live in a world where these parents think devoting a youtube channel, profiting from it, from the act of abusing their kids, a channel dedicated to "look how funny this abuse is" is as damning as anything.

I had abusive folks too who didn't try to pass it off as a prank, and alarm bells went off. No question. The invisible ink one was enough for me.

Will Corey really turn out to be a murderer psychopath who shoots up his school? That kind of sounds victim-blamey in a mildly dystopian sense, like we're already branding these kids as damaged goods and 'othering' them before they've even started. It's disturbing that the parents even have the opportunity to have a youtube back and forth in what looks like child abuse 101. Sure, some dysfunction in these kids' life is probably inevitable but from what I've learned is abusive parents are dime-a-dozen. Whether it's via mental illness or alcoholism or whatever.

It's that shouting at your kids till they cry isn't even the prank. Shouting at your kids till they cry for something they haven't done is the prank.

Parents don't shout at your kids till they cry.

It is abuse. They're fucking up their kid's mind and emotions.

Being blamed for something you didn't do and being called a liar when you're telling the truth.

I had both done to me when I was a kid. It still fucks with my mind and my emotions decade later.

YouTube needs to implement a stringent vetting and screening process for monetising "prank channels" and these channels need to reviewed every couple months.

You know, enough to seem 'weird' to his family, and thus an acceptable punchline for their 'pranks'. Meanwhile, he sees through the bullshit as he doesn't implicitly buy into the premise, but is punished for doing so.

Fuck those parents. Gonna hug mine extra hard tomorrow for not even thinking to treat my condition like that.

I hate to bring up the term, but Cody is *literally* a red-headed stepchild. He's sensitive, he's different, he's small, he might cry a lot. Hell, he even has those rubbery little kid glasses. I'm not saying that the kid deserves *any* of what's happened to him, but he is, unfortunately, a *prime* target for bullying. But, usually, that comes from other kids, not grown ass adults (let alone your parents).

This is reprehensible, but there is little doubt in my mind that Cody is everyone's prime target in that house, possibly with the sister coming in second.

Seeing as this thread is lasting long enough for me to actually say something:

I think this is absolutely fucking disgusting. These "parents" are fucking scum. They might tel their kids "oh don't worry, it's fake, we don't really hate you" but they still make them go through that shit. They still tell their kids to HIT EACH OTHER, they still PUSH AND HIT their kids and they still SCREAM AND BLAME their kids for things they didn't do. And then they say "oh, it's ok, we buy them playstations and ipads" and get their kids to do the "it's just a prank bro" as a non-ironic defence. THEN they try and turn it onto DeFranco and others who called them out for this bullshit and say that THEY are the ones hurting the family and that Child Protective Services said they were fine (when CPS later claim they were unaware of the videos).

Seriously fuck these pieces of shit and I hope the kids get help. I hope they realise that this shit isn't normal and they don't deserve to be abused like this so Mummy and Daddy can get some views and likes on the internet and they get to have shiny toys. Like DeFranco said, the good doesn't excuse the abuse.


Also, fuck youtube from turning pranks from harmless practical jokes into abuse and racism and assault. Fucking youtube "pranks".

Based on his twitter feed, he's going with the classic Blame the Critics defence. Pulled the videos down to protect his family.

Guy makes videos of himself abusing his family, gets called on it, then pulls videos to protect his family.

Emma and Cody are from the same mom, but not the one in the videos.

Those two kids are the most abused in the videos.

Backstory from the real mom.

We have seen how they act actually angry. The H3H3 video only touched the tip of the iceburg I guess so they could play it for laughs.

And yeah, you can't say it's fake and just for lulz when the kid is listing off all their social media like he'll be beaten if he fucks up, and then fucks up and gets shouted at.

Fuck these guys all the way to prison.
