Sunny Day, but the streets look different…

Visitors to the iconic children’s show “Sesame Street” on YouTube got a rude awakening on Sunday. All videos were deleted, and replaced with pornographic material. The header on the front page said “Sesame Street: It’s Where Porn Lives”. YouTube took instant action and brought down the site within the hour. At this moment, the page is still offline.

The blame has been running around as Reddit has a thread, blaming a person titled “MrEdxwx” . MrEdxwx has responded with a video stating his case that he did not hack Sesame Street.

Their Facebook Page has a public apology:

We apologize for any inconvenience our audience may have experienced today on ourSesame Street YouTube channel.  Our channel was compromised and we are presently working with YouTube/Google to restore our original content. We always strive to provide age-appropriate content for our viewers and hope to resolve this problem quickly.
