YouTube also worked with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to determine illegal activity.

Dr Hess said the doctored Splatoon videos are not the only ones pushing dark and potentially unsafe content on social media platforms, particularly on YouTube Kids.

"Every quarter we remove millions of videos and channels that violate our policies and we remove the majority of these videos before they have any views", the spokesperson said. Brands that say they're cutting YouTube ads often find work-arounds to stay on the platform, such as striking deals directly with influential YouTube creators to include endorsements inside videos themselves, the executive said.

YouTube has run into this kind of problem in the past. He detailed how pedophiles are using YouTube to connect with each other and share links to child pornography through comments.

The videos have also been found carrying ads.

"We have strict policies that govern what videos we allow ads to appear on, and videos that promote anti-vaccination content are a violation of those policies".

AT&T has pulled all advertising from YouTube while the streaming service deals with issues with respect to predatory comments being left on videos of children, as indicated by CNBC. His video has been watched more than 2.5 million times.

The decision comes after a user on Youtube accused the video-hoster's algorithm of facilitating communication between paedophiles on the site. The video hosting giant also stated that any content that endangers the minors is non-acceptable on their platform and the company continues to improve its efficiencies to eliminate such abuse more quickly in the future. Other videos at the time featured Mickey Mouse in a pool of blood and Spider-Man urinating on Elsa, the princess from "Frozen", prompting backlash.

The old adage that it takes years to build a reputation but just moments to lose one seems particularly apt with regards to the increasingly-tense situation between YouTube and its advertisers.

Watson's video shows that YouTube's comments section, when it comes to giving child predators a forum in which they can indulge their predilections, goes beyond vile and into the realm of risky. Earlier this afternoon, BuzzFeed News reported that the famous video sharing platform is removing ads from videos that promote anti-vaccination contents, citing a ban on "dangerous and harmful" material.

YouTube has apparently been in crisis mode all week endeavoring to address the issue.
