YouTube facing backlash over disturbing ‘auto-completes’

Last week it was reported that major companies were removing their adverts from YouTube due to the mass of sexual content exploiting children. Major brands realised they were appearing alongside sexualised videos of children. The videos were reported to have attracted ‘hundreds of comments’ by suspected pedophiles.

This week it has been reported that YouTube’s auto-complete is populating and suggesting sexual content before anything else. Although, YouTube have claimed to remove the initial pedophiliac auto-complete sentences such as “How to have s** with your kids”. When you type How to have… s** in school is third population on the list.

Is this the end of YouTube’s monetization, have they gone to far this time?
