Parents are being warned by experts about sick Peppa Pig ‘parody’ YouTube videos that show the much-loved cartoon characters harming each other in gruesome ways.
The vile content is raising concerns for children searching for genuine Peppa Pig episodes.
Videos are circulating on Youtube and other social media channels, claiming to be ‘parodies’, showing characters going through grim ordeals such as being shot and burnt alive.
One video has narration that appears to be authentic, describing Peppa’s brother George who “wants to play too”.
George is ignored by the other characters, picks up a gun and shoots himself. The video has been viewed around 3 million times.
Another video shows Peppa Pig picking up matches, setting herself on fire, then dying.
Text in the video reads: “Peppa likes to play with matches. Peppa lit the match. Blow it out Peppa! Peppa is dead.”
The videos have raised concerns as this is content many parents would consider unsuitable for young children to watch.
One video, created by a Spanish user, shows Peppa Pig eating bacon saying it “changed life forever” before going on to eat her father alive in a grisly way.
Andy Burrows, NSPCC Associate Head of Child Safety Online, told the Sun : “YouTube has time and again claimed they will do more to protect children from traumatic videos like this.
“But it is still far too easy for children to come across disturbing clips featuring their favourite cartoon characters.
“The tech giants have a responsibility to protect children on their platforms.”
