WHen I clicked on the link for the safe space from another thread - I then started watching one about siblings - one of whom had down syndrome.

THen I saw what else came up -


and this seems to be a 'mild' one to so many others that could be linked to.

It appears that you tube think nothing of letting people post videos making fun of or showing people with special needs being assaulted, teased and treated appalling.

I was shock

this is meant to be funny

OMG! I didn't even watch more than a nano-sec. shock

I've asked Youtube to remove it. There's a 'flag' tab and it lets you report video links that mock those with disabilities.

the sad thing is that there are so many making fun of and showing people with special needs being treated appallingly.

god I can't believe the number of sickening clips that brought up shock shock

Have flagged 3. I wonder if youtube really will remove them.

What made it particularly awful is that I had a list on the right suggesting a bunch of other hateful clips, but also one clip that was obviously from proud parents about their toddler with DS. It's creepy to think that something like that could well be watched by the tw@ts who put up those hateful videos.

I'm speechless actually....

That made my blood run cold. I hope youtube get their act together and remove offensive material like that. Even better yet ban the losers who think it is amusing.

God, that is sickening.
Absolutely disgraceful

That is disgusting. I'll report it as well.

Sick bastards.

Exactly my point about 'educating' others in the other thread. Bugger it if my child is going to get beaten and hit just to 'educate' scumbags.

I've flagged them too. Yout tube have a lot tp answer for.

strawberryfields Sun 27-Jul-08 10:31:06

Have flagged them and some others that came up...can't believe youtube think this is ok!

Blu Sun 27-Jul-08 10:45:49

Made me so sick, I couldn't watch - but will go back and flag them.

This whole YouTube thing makes my blood BOIL.

You would have to be MAD to put a movie of your child, any child, into that crocodile swamp. IMO.

I don't know why they allow people to post at all using the word 'retard'. Clearly that's a great big red flag suggesting that the content is discriminating against people with disabilities?
