Channel of popular YouTube dad suspended after he pranks kids with laxative-laced ice cream on video
A famous YouTuber vlogger from Nevada had his channel suspended after posting a so-called prank on his kids that crossed the line into cruelty, the Daily Mail reports.
Cordero James Brady, 29, the dad behind the popular CJ SO COOL channel posted a video of his children writhing in pain after he gave them ice cream laced with laxatives that made them run to the bathroom to relieve themselves because they had a pretty bad case of diarrhea.
While Brady thought the joke was funny enough for his 5.6 million followers to watch and get a kick out of, the cruel practical joke made his children literally sick to their stomach.
“My stomach hurts,” screams one of his kids.
“Oh my goodness, this boy’s stomach is broken!” Brady jokes at his child’s expense.
Laughing at his kids in agony, Brady then films his youngest two children in separate bathrooms, sitting on toilets, doubled over in pain and crying their eyes out as he holds the camera and films.
While YouTube has permanently removed the video, the CJ SO COOL channel is still active.
DailyMail.com reports that there was in fact an investigation into Brady and his family.
“There was a case that was investigated in 2016 involving laxatives and this individual. It was a joint investigation with Clark County Child Protective Services. It was submitted to the DAs office and it was recommended as a criminal case,” said a Henderson Police Department source.
The site babe.net initially reported on it to YouTube.
Brady has done a number of questionable pranks to his kids; from lighting fireworks in their bedrooms to teasing his partner Royalty Johnson, 28, and telling her that their child has drowned.
YouTube released a statement after the laxative prank saying: “content that endangers minors is unacceptable to us and we have strict policies prohibiting child endangerment and harmful and dangerous content. We remove content that violates our policies as soon as we’re made aware of it.”
We say, give that dude a Metamucil shake for Father’s Day.
