Independent –A family have lost custody of two children featured in a series of “prank” videos that some said were in fact child abuse.
The YouTube account “DaddyOFive” became wildly popular in recent weeks for posting videos where parents played “pranks” on their children. Those included the parents accusing one child in particular, named Cody, of a range of bad behaviour – and then punishing him physically and emotionally for it.
Now Rose Hall, the biological mother of 9-year-old Cody and his sister Emma, says that she has obtained emergency custody of the kids.
“They’re doing good,” Ms Hall says on the video where she appears with her lawyer. “They’re getting back to their playful selves.”
