Good morning my toker friends. I’ve been incognito, but I’m back and I want to talk about something that really affects me and that’s child abuse. Not just the kind of abuse that consists of hitting or slapping a kid around, but emotional abuse which can sometimes be worse. It isn’t t just the abuse that has me twisted, it’s the fact that people can make money from it. Take for example Mike and Heather from Maryland who started a YouTube channel called Daddy O Five. The videos they post are all about “pranking” their children, but I don’t see a fucking thing that is funny in his videos. His videos include destroying or threatening to destroy his children’s things, violence against women, public ridicule and emotional distress. He had such a large following that he was being paid by advertisers on YouTube, but now Child Protective Services are following him and his horrid wife.
After viewers complained about the videos Mike and Lori have lost their kids! Take a look for yourself, and let me know what you think.
Mike and Heather have hired a public relations company and are now making the news rounds to soften the blow claiming that “everything was scripted” and the kids were “totally in on it” and were “excited to see how many views they got.” If these kids were acting, then Meryl Streep needs to move the fuck over because these kids are brilliant. But what is not fake or scripted is one of the kids, 8-year-old Cody, who seems to be the butt of all the “pranks,” is now self harming and apparently spreading feces in the house. These acts prove this kid is under severe distress. Our goal as parents is to raise well adjusted people who will go out into society and do well in life, not to make money on them by abusing them. What’s more surprising is that Daddy O Five had thousands of subscribers! I could only watch 15 minutes before I broke down crying for these kids.
Mike and Heather say they only did this because they “wanted to give their kids a better life.” A better life? Really? Because this isn’t a better life, this is child abuse.
Take a look when Mike encourages Alex to slap his sister Emma, in the face .
