Featured Video

So I was looking around on Youtube as sometimes I do, and I noticed this video that was in the "Featured Video" section. Most of the time they have some good things in that section and it's fun to look at some of the stuff that people come up with or what people are doing. However, this video was just too much.

The video title is, "baby eating habañero pepper". I thought, no way. Who would let a baby eat one of the hottest peppers on earth? Bad parents that's who! At first I thought that this must be a fake title. Someone who puts that title on their video to get people to look at it. After all, there is a video floating around Youtube that has almost the same title and when you click on it, the baby is eating a lemon, not a habañero pepper. So I decided to check it out.

At first I could not believe my eyes. There is a guy holding a habañero pepper right next to a baby! I was thinking, no way this guy would stick this in a baby's mouth. But he did! He held down the baby's arms and stuck it in the baby's mouth! Babies will eat anything so why would this be any different? I was in total shock. Who would do this? Why are they doing this? This is child abuse and these people should be put in jail! Those were my thoughts when I saw this video.

What amazes me is that this video is a "Featured Video" on the Youtube website! I don't know how they judge what video's should be "Featured" but this is not one of them! What amazes me even more is that this video has been up on Youtube for almost 4 years and has had over 600,000 hits and is still up and running. To me, that is just uncalled for and should be taken down from Youtube.

You can see the video here.

If you watch this video please report this video to Youtube as child abuse!

The baby eating the lemon but the title says habañero can be seen here.
