Children hoping to watch Sesame Street on YouTube on Sunday were greeted with quite the opposite. The channel was hacked, all videos deleted, design modified and graphic porn uploaded. It took Google around 22 minutes to pull the content down and close the channel but even now, search results for Sesame Street on YouTube reveals the occasional graphic thumbnail. It was believed that a hacker using the name Mr. Edxwx on Reddit was behind this, since the name on the YouTube channel was changed to Mr Edxwx, however that person has stated he had nothing to do with this hack.
