    Maybe this is old news to most of you, but before tonight i had not heard of this.
    Since 2015 a family has been V-Logging their life. The name of their channel is "DaddyOFive".
    They wished to sell their channel as fun and based on "Pranks", but this could not have been further from the truth.
    The two parents treat these children cruelly, force them to inflict violence on another, scream profanities at them and they do all of this, for the monetary gain they get from ad-revenue.
    At the time that this became public knowledge they had close to a million subscribers and they were sponsored, according to h3h3-productions, by brands like Pepsi.
    The owner of the channel, a self-proclaimed gaming/nerdculture enthusiast, wished to schedule a meeting with known youtube-entertainer "Pat the NES Punk" and James Rolfe from Cinemassacre-fame. Pat Contri (Pat the NES Punk), in his CUPodcast #97 distanced himself from DaddyOFive and judged him harshly for his actions.

    EDIT:
    These videos are from Philip DeFranco who first covered this situation, before it was picked up by other news outlets.
    Videos in chronological order.

    In your basement Dick Size: 5 meters.
    There's more deleted posts here than I have brain cells.

    But I have seen an exposed video of them abusing Cody, fucking messed up man. Pretty crazy how they thought it was a good idea to leave it in.

    @Jacklack3 As far as i have heard they are now under active investigation by their local sheriffs office who are co-operating with Child Protective Services.
    At least they said that they will not comment on any active investigations.
    IMHO that speaks volumes.

    Yeah I watch Phil every day. I rallied a large number of people to report their channel for child endangerment which was pretty cool. Nice to see the community come together to do something good for once.
    Then of course they commit seppuku.

    Just a couple of garbage humans who have more kids than braincells. CPS is a total joke in the US.

    I hope that kid can find his real mom and that his current caretakers are fucking murdered. (In case the fake papers thing is true)

    I can sort of get occasionally pranking your kid, but only if its some light hearted shit.

    ''Oh son I heard about your flunked maths, its ok, sweetie''
    I mean, if you tell a straight A kid this with a calm caring tone then thats a light hearted prank that wont do shit to their mental health and you'll just have a laugh with them.

    But if you start screaming at an 8 year old for spilling invisible ink like he just fucking killed your best friend thats fucking abuse.

    It's straight up abuse. My parents would do that occasionally and I still have a wince/flinch reaction to slamming doors. It is ridiculous.

    If I had a kid, I would lock it up in the basement whenever it annoyed me.
    I'd beat it every day for no reason cause I like it.

    In all seriousness tho, it's likely to be fake.
    Not to mention it's Youtube, 99% of it is fake.

    Honestly,this is extremely horrifying. Watching the videos makes me super nervous honestly. I hope it's either a "staged prank" of a joke/fake thing of some sort.

    If it is fake then it's still horrible. That's like someone making a fake cp, yeah sure it's fake but it's still horrible.

    It's not fake.
    As much as they tell child protective services that.

    It's Youtube.

    People make videos of themselves slapping phones out of peoples hands.
    People make videos of eachother beating eachother up for fun.

    Eh, not me problem.

    Never heard of the guy before this.

    If its fake it means the child was never through any real suffering. I doubt that it was (the amount of idiots in youtube is astonishing)

    Can you please quote my post saying I said it was fine?

    Exactly.

    I'm just saying, this isn't like "Psycho Dad" where it's just like a dad breaking a dudes stuff. This is child abuse. Doesn't matter if it's fake or not, it's still messed up.
