Stop #ElsaGate YouTube Channels

This petition had 271 supporters

#ElsaGate is the name given to the disturbing trend of videos featuring Disney's Elsa, Marvel's Spiderman, and DC Comics' Joker in videos featuring rape, kidnapping, self harm, murder (or attempted murder), and lots more. These videos are targeted at children from about 4 to 10. YouTube's current algorithm lets these videos past the child filters, and sometimes even promotes them to users. For more information and discussions on this, visit Reddit's forum r/ElsaGate.

ElsaGate is starting to gain mainstream coverage, but it's believed YouTube still hasn't addressed the problem. Here are two articles be The BBC and The Gaurdian. This post can help immensely with understanding more about this disturbing trend.

Now that you know about this, you have to sign this petition and hopefully Google/YouTube will do something about this. The least they can do is make YouTube Kids' filters safer.
